I know this season has been rough, but what was your favorite moment this season?

Likewise. It was almost like something out of a dream, I could barely believe what I was seeing.

Dehann's game winning assist to JT against Dallas. Also, the game where Vanek scored his first NYI goal against Boston. I remember we beat Ottawa and Boston back to back and I was thinking "we are for real now. We might have something in Poulin."

that was a great play in Dallas...




I'll say it was fun seeing Vanek Tavares and Okie tear it up....

Okie playing like a star


and the emergence of King Calvin de MAAN

Kyle Okposo finally becoming the player we thought he could be
Calvin deHaan proving that he's not only a legit prospect, but a real NHL player
Brock Nelson and Ryan Strome having normal rookie seasons, not disappointing at all

KO's goal against Chicago, the crowd chanting "USA!"
The 7 goals against Vancouver which pretty much shot all their confidence

Two for me....Okie winner against Blackhawks...USA chants...

Then the game against Dallas...which I was in attendance for...barn was rocking...no Okie, his wife was giving birth...but JT had 5 pts and a trick, Strome had his first NHL goal and CdH had his first 2 NHL points...all in one night

Stome's goal tonight. Moreso than a wicked slapshot, perhaps a turning point for kid trinity cubed.

I only go to games occasionally since I still go to school in Connecticut, but I think I went to maybe 6-8 games this season and I didn't see a win.

wow. you guys have come up with some great moments and in such an awful season!

The KO moment in CHI was pretty cool for reasons that weren't solely NYI - really glad for him on how he's elevated his game.

I love the emergence of deHaan, Strome, Nelson and Lee. I can easily add the continued solid play of Hickey, the promising look of Czuczman and Mayfield who have SIZE and can skate and move the puck - things the Isles haven't had in forever.

I'd love to see the Islanders with a goalie as good as Carey Price, who was stellar in a 2-0 tonight and has been game-stealing-spectacular all season.

"A few good men", next year, and this can be a special team!

I went to 7 games this year. 0-7. Such is life.

Have to agree with the others in here; the win against Dallas, Okie's OT winner, and that huge Vancouver period.

Still pales in comparison to being in the Coliseum for JT's go ahead goal and Cizikas' dagger in Game 4 last May. Hope the boys send out the building the right way. It's going to be an emotional year for most of us.

The JT hat trick and the KO goal were probably my favorite moments

Oh and I guess the only win I got to see this year too (MLK day game vs flyers). 1-6 this year :-(
