Yeah, that was piss poor. It's a common theme against the Islanders since basically post-lockout. The Isles get up and go for the game like it's game 7. The Rangers seem to treat it like another game. I can rarely remember a game where the Rangers dominated the Islanders. I feel like we're always outplayed by them. Sometimes we'll get the win, but most times we get outplayed.
It's embarrassing to go up 3-1 on a rival team, and not close it out and be taken advantage of in the process.
Hopefully it gives them fuel to bring to the outdoor game, and the game two weeks from now. Need these points.
I'm sure no one wants to hear it, but the stupid new "icing" rules directly caused the too many men penalty. Stralman's clear, in every other hockey league in the world is not icing as at least five players could have played the puck.
That said, no consistency against a bunch of confident young ***holes like the Fishsticks will result in an ugly loss.
