All teams have at least one game like this a season. BUT, not against a tired team playing back2-back games, not after winning two in a row and then having 2 days off, not when you're playing a division rival. There is no excuse for how they played, not one. And it's very concerning. It's only one loss, just like we don't want to get ahead of ourselves after an inspiring win, we don't want to act like the sky is fallinig after a loss, however this is as concerning as a loss can be.

It's not that they lost, it's how they lost. Maybe I'll just pretend they lost 3-2 and actually showed up for the game.

The Isles went into the late third tied scoreless against the defending Eastern Conference champs, a few days after beating them in overtime, with what many called have called an AHL caliber roster and suddenly they aren't emotionally ready to take the next step? Give me a break.

Well....

This loss would typically send us into a tailspin. But I do have faith well be ready Tuesday. But man, tough way to lose a game. Should have scored on the powerplays, but yet another example how a callchanges a game.

The Islanders cost themselves the games-NOT the refs. When you score exactly 0 goals-you're never going to win-and only have yourselves to blame.

This loss is a momentum breaker unless we can bounce back and win against a surging Pens team that could be looking for revenge.
A test game coming up buds.
Hedberg was really good, but how many rebound chances did he stop?? Not many, because I can count the number that we had on 1 finger---- gotta play better than that-

Just back from the game. It sucked completely. Nabby did a good job till that BS PP at the end. Also, That Grabner breakaway was failure. That you cant screw up. All he had to do was lift it.

Cant argue with you there. But im not going to hang myself. Nabby looks great, and the Isles look competitive. Have to keep coming to play and the games show us anything can happen.

Tues is a big game, and Pens have come alive since we last saw them. Pens will come in with a very strong forecheck and so will the Isles, or were looking at a 2 game losing streak heading into MsG

Fact: Grabner isn't good at breakaways.. Has never been... Two fluke breakaway goals this season where he messed up and still ended up scoring isn't going to change that.

At least he gave himself a chance to score.
Tavares had a chance wide open in front.
Even slow Moulson had a good backhand chance.
Where was Kyle Okposos chance?
Fact: this kid sucks the big one and generates nothing on the ice. Maybe HIS CHaNCE goes in.

Very important in this game was ice time, The first and second line played line 8-9 mins, 1st pairing also, while half the team sat getting cold and not allowed to play. They recovered nicely once getting some ice in the second, cudos to them. But you cannot play half your team for 2 mins. This will catch up with the team shortly in losses, its happened in the past.
11 Players did not even register a hit? same old. Who's accountable?

Not denying okposo has been bad..

It's just absolutely stupid to wanna dump the kid after 8 games to start a season after a long offseason.. There are plenty of players who are struggling to start this season KO isn't going anywhere he's signed reasonably and has 20 goal potential every single season. He's not going to be one of the top players in the league but he will be and is a solid serviceable NHL player. Dont be type of fan who rips him now and in three weeks when he's tearing it up is going to be screaming what a bargain he is.. Calm down.

Don't think I said the word power once in my post.. Nope sure didn't I said he's a solid serviceable NHL player with 20 goal potential but lets give up on him because of 8 games after a long offseason when plenty of players are off to cold starts.

Some thoughts:
- Most importantly: A ref at the NHL level CANNOT take the liberty to give a penalty in the last 10 minutes of a tied game, much less a 0-0 game, to a guy for making a TEXTBOOK check. It doesn't get better than what Strait did. THAT was the intention for checks in hockey. Ipso facto, a DISGRACE that in the best league in the world, that penalty can be given at that point in the game. Just awful. Just absolutely awful!
- Tonight was Grabner's worst game this season. It's not just the missed breakaway (as others have written, he's not good at them anyways). He just did a lot of the other things pretty poorly. A game full of inconsistencies.
- Kyle Okposo has one more goal than my grandmother. Sorry, but he's NOT coming close to getting the job done as a first liner. In fact, it's really looking like he chronically needs half a season to get going. He's had a lot of slow starts in recent years.
- Well, put me in the group of people who welcomed the Carkner signing, but are now bemoaning it. This game is simply too fast for that man. He is not an NHL-level defender. He's nowhere near an NHL-caliber skater. When do we see Martinek?
- Getting a bit tired of the staged fights... I want them to come because the emotion and game situation calls for them.

What is one item which separates the better teams from the mediocre?

Bouncing back after a crappy loss.
Not letting a crappy loss effect their on ice performance next game.


If the Isles are truly taking "the next step"...well...we'll see how they play on Tuesday.

Every game in a shortened season is a big game, but some are bigger than others.
Just like the next shift after a goal scored for or against is an important shift to gain or maintain momentum, this was a statement game after the two wins against the Pens and Devils on the end of a road trip.
This game maintains the momentum. Losing it is not a disaster, it was NOT a must win in my mind. But coming home from a successful road trip in front of the home fans (well 11,000 of them) and one of the reasons for losing was not beiing able to raise your compete level reveals that the young team is not ready to take it away from the established clubs in the Atlantic. You have to follow up on your successes and come back fast from your failures.
This is one game, one test failed. Not the end of the world, there will be other tests along the way. If they are ready enough to make a move this year, we will see it and know it when they win games like this one.
Final analysis...beaten by a hot goaltender.

Agreed, they should fix the parts of the game that did not work and move on.
