You really expect a team to keep pushing at 100% when they're up 4-0 against an injury-riddled Islander team? It's impossible to not play down to your opposition to some extent.
Your comments make it seem like we scraped out a 2-1 win in overtime...
You know nothing. Go post on the Bruins board, they'll love a debbie downer like you.
The prob is that we started this game like it was an exhibition one, Islanders had a couple of good chances, 2 on 1 twice and some good shots, Halak has been pretty solid, a NHL team would have took advantage of our poor play.. we played better in the second and the third but there were too many passengers again.. As I said, the Bulldogs could have won this one.. Im not negative just for the fun of being negative, Im a fan but also an observer who thinks we will get the opposite result if we dont play better in the next few games, every teams we will face til the end are playing some pretty good hockey, we will have to be ready to face a much better opposition.. last 2 games were a smokescreen, you will see..

A.Kost is by far my biggest desapointment this season.. This line was our less effective tonight, no real scoring chance, no chimestry at all.. Nothing convincing regarding the last stretch of the season outside the first line.. We will hit a wall in the next few days, it wont be as easy as our last 2 games, the pace of the game will be much faster, we have to be ready and I dont have a good feeling unfortunately....
Right up until Sergei was sent down to the minors and the propaganda came out in the papers re: AK's involvement with the mob, he was actually playing quite well and one of our more consistent scorers, after all he does have 23, he needs a set line to get into the groove, all the juggling Carbo was doing did'nt help anyone.
Now what to do with the 2nd line? I say put Andrei on the right of Lats and Lappy and make that the second line. You would have three guys with a decent size coming at you.
Absolutely not! Laps,Lats,Kostopolus has been our most consistent line this year, they know their roles and are very effective at it. Keep our lines as was in NY, if Pleks is struggling and not producing maybe promote Metro, but I think they are good as is.
