Ny Islanders 4, Philadelphia 1

Looks like Esche lost it in the third.

Ugly loss but Pitkanen's ice time should be a bright spot. 22:00, including 8:20 on the PP, is serious playing time for anybody much less a rookie.

They definitely seem to be giving him every opportunity to stick with the big team.

I was at the game and our goalies didn't have a chance on any of the 4 goals.

Game was actually played pretty even, er controlled more of the play than they did. Flyers PP was bad, but we weren't putting out real PP units, more just rolling the next line out there.

LeClair played his best game by far of the pre-season. Scored one, and should have had 3 or 4.

The Handzus line was invisible.

Brashear did not back down from Godard. Brashear went after Butenchon and then Goddard jumped in the middle, it was Brashear against the two Islanders, nothing really happened, just some pushing and shoving.

How did Sharp and Chouinard look?

What about Somik?

Sharp & Chouinard didn't do too much.

Somik looked very good.

The LeClair-Recchi-Somik line was by far our best of the night.

Wrong, John had it right. Brashear was ready to fight but the linesmen wouldn't let them.



First thing is first, LeClair-Somik-Recchi did look great last night. The Handzus line got less time as the game went on.

Roenick and Amonte are still playing with the puck too much! Pitkanen was awsome. The power play looked good they just couldn't put it in the net (stop me if you heard that before though). Towards the end of the second during a 2-man advantage the only ones willing to shoot were Pitkanen and Johnsson. This showed best when there were two open shots at the end of the second PP before Pitkanen finally put one on net. That was not impressive.

I think Pitkanen is tuning out whatever is being taught now and only doing what he learned in Finland because he's been doing some things on the PP I haven't seen for a few years.

However, people need to stop yelling shoot when there isn't an open shot! John, I know you're not one of those people.

On the other side, no one could stop the Jason Blake line, and Rick DiPietero was awsome.

As a Northeastern University alum (and thus, no fan of Boston University), that last statement is rather aggravating. Of course, that could also just be the annoyance at a Flyers' loss...no, wait. It's both.

Glad to hear the LeClair-Recchi-Somik line looked good. I'm looking forward to seeing what Somik does this year. He had a decent first year last season, and sounds like he's kept improving during this preseason. Now, we just need him to finish some of his chances this year.

I would disagree on the "DiPietro was awesome" part.

DiPietro made all the saves he should, but didn't have to make any great saves. When we had real good chances we hit him in the logo about 6 times, and we missed the net on 3 or 4 other occasions.

Well hitting him in the Logo is a good sign for us. At least it means he's in position for the shot and not cheating too much like in the past.

He was fine stopping the puck, but absolutely brutal in his stickhandling. Overhandling the puck far too much and gave it away more than 5 times, very lucky a few didn't end up right in his own net.

They weren't tested too much, and again no chance on any of the 4 goals..

Goal #1 - On the PP Hackett makes a nice save on a good hard low shot from the point, he deflects the rebound to the side, but right onto the stick of Timander, open net, goal.

Goal #2 - Esche stops a partial breakaway but defenseman doesnt pick up the trailer and Peca put in the rebound

Goal #3 - Bouncing puck pops out into the slot, Bates takes a whack, gets lucky and picks it clean, right off the post and in.

Goal #4 - On the PP again, Esche makes the first save, Aucion is in front all alone and sweeps in the rebound. Vandermeer out of position on this play.
