The Islanders are coming off a soul crushing loss to the Senators, a game that saw them turn a 3-1 lead in the 3rd into a 5-3 loss. They got screwed over by Toronto on a no-goal call, then the refs missed 2 calls on the Sens GWG.
The key here is: Stay out of the box. Stay out of the box. STAY OUT OF THE BOX.
The 2 games against them we got off to good starts, gave them a PP very early in the 2nd and that completely turned the game around in their favor.
When I saw the Isles up 3-1 against Ottawa I told my friend at the game last night were losing in Long Island, but to be honest after their collapse I have a good feeling about tomorrow night and the boys can't play worse then last night, they looked like last year's team in the first 40
I have a feeling this will come down to whether we can convert on the PP or not. We really need to kick up our % to make us a deadly team on the PP. This, of course, may involve playing Eller and Chucky. Seems to work almost every time. We can outgun them, just have to watch out for the drop passes that result in a cluster**** superhuge screen with a completely open Taveres/Moulson/Bailey. I'm sure PK wants to win this against his buddy Justin Timberlake.
