You know things have gotten bad when Islander fans have to come reassure us.
Things are getting bad for the other NY team for a change.. so I think us NYI fans can just breathe a little bit a sigh of relief.
I had a dream last night the NYR's went on to win the Stanley Cup.. I almost had a heart attack. It's one thing to be the worst team in the NHL.. but if you guys were to go on and have a season full of awards and accomplishments.. it would make it all the worse.
So here's to a good hockey game tonight: something neither side has seen in a good while. A good ol' fashion hockey game. Hits, fights, goals, saves..
Fritz is out of the lineup for the Islanders tonight. But they Isles brought Reichlicz(the wrecker!) up from the ECHL to Bridgeport, and there is an unconfirmed report from Islanders point blank that he might be in the lineup for the Isles tonight.
I'm finding it hard to root for these players. Whatever result will bring changes is the result that I want. I haven't had any emotional attachment to the games for a while, more of a concerned observer at this point.
The Isles only have two bright spots this season ( 3 if you count the season as being almost over)
Kyle Okposo --- for us dedicated fans who watch every game ( under heavy medication) we are watching him develop into a good player. Kinda like a big puppy who hasnt quite gotten control over his paws and is sometimes clumsy. Keep an eye on 21---
