Last game with our Jet Blues against a terrible team like the Isles..Of course we shouldnt take them lightly!!
Good thing is we are riding a 3 game winning streak with these jerseys and we should end it with a 4th win.. We can afford to lose this game against the Isles..
In the meantime we have to hope that the Wild will be successful in WSH. These could be very big points for us because we are struggling again to score goals..This outbreak didnt help us at all..Now we have to go back to basics. One goal against EDM is terrible IMO
I'm getting a little frustrated with our tendency to play down to the level of our competition. How do we beat Boston and Philly one week, and then lose to Carolina and Edmonton?? We have some very winnable games here in our final two weeks, and I think tonight is where we have to turn it on and show that we're ready to compete in the playoffs.
Nabokov is a surprising story. On the reason he signed an extension with the isles IMO is because they offered him about 1 million more than anyone else would have in the off season.
I figure Nabby re-signed with the Islanders as a sort of insurance policy. With potential CBA issues looming in the summer, it's better to have one contract than nothing. Plus, the goalie market has been bad.
