I'm pathetic. Stuck at work, DVR'd the game. Really wanted to watch it without knowing the score or PBP. I caved after about a half hour and came here.
At least they are winning. Glad Okposo buried one. Going into the season most people were genuinely excited about his potential playing on that JT line. I don't think that should change much based on one game.
Good for JT getting a couple of helpers. BACK TO A PPG PACE!!! Hopefully he can put a couple more in the bank tonight(including a goal or two).
Why is it this team cannot play 60 minutes? Even on days where they are playing well, they still cannot do it. It is one of the best signs of a team that is not good. This period, they look like they dont care again. We'll just sit back and do nothing, not hustle, get beat to every puck. Ughhhh, this team is horrible at maintaining momentum.
I'm at the game today.. I haven't seen the Coliseum rocking like this in God knows how long..what a game!! Ullstrom has some wheels.. His game speed might be faster than Grabner's, and that goal by Ullstrom was a sick snipe!!
Btw, the new Islander muscle is really keeping the opponent honest..... In the past, a 4-1 lead would have lead to a cheap shot or some type of fight instigated by our opponent to change the momentum.. Tavares and the kids look like they will be well protected this year which should open the ice for them as well as give them a bit more confidence..
Don't worry, we're gonna hang on for a win... Lots of guys looking real good!!
