DiPietro two great saves under pressure, Lukowich turnover and penalty, Satan hook after the giveaway...Five on three against.

4-1...

Martinek and Campoli looking clueless penalty, lost Higgins afterward who converts with an open net 5-1.

Turn out the lights on this game. Blake cannot not hit the net on a breakaway.

I guess he was upset at the penalty.

Sure looked like a penalty.

I think his team not responding in the biggest game of the year with a 5-1 deficit looming is playing an underlying role. His coverage wasn't great either on that goal...

Ok Satan just scores but still...no excuses for this one. First 2 periods effort was there, they got no results, so they buckled, in simple terms. I come back from a 30 minute hiatus to find them down 5-1 (well now 2), I think I'm going back to reading. This just isn't fun to watch...

Bouchard has played well in this game on both sides of the ice. If he can play this way consistently that makes Sopel all the more expendable. Well see what the preceeding games bring before the deadline though.

They played with good effort ad controlled the play the first 40 mins, but had a 2-0 deficit to show for it, they bailed out after coming to that realization and didn't continue to battle and break the Huet wall, that pretty much sums up this team.

They knew the ramifications, only to lose 5-3, that also sums up this team.

The opposition executed on the PP, while the isles didnt (PK% dropped lower as well), ""

In summation, this team doesn't 'work,' in more senses of the word than one.

Im leaning now towards keeping Satan. Hmm...I kno I kno its too idealistic, but IF only we could dump Yashin and let Satan be our "go-to-offensive guy." Either way, only way I'd give him up is if the offer was substantial. He can be one of the vets we keep as a core to build our precocious youth around, remember hes in the "prime," as they say, of his career.

I know it's only one game after a long break but in the big picture it's a devastating loss.

Not like they did not come out and play with urgency or outplay the Canadians, Huet gave them the goaltending Snow did not and ther Islanders as they have been doing all season just cannot score that timely goal or make a play where Huet had no chance, meanwhile as soon as they are shorthanded the puck is in the Islander net and they are trailing in a game where they are outshooting the opposition 25-5.

And as usual we saw some good individual performances, Yashin drew a bunch of penalties and was controling the puck, Satan had his goals, Blake had chances but did not finish, Asham has to bury that chance. Sopel made some very good plays as did Bouchard and Zhitnik. Parrish scored his rebound goal.

They needed a goal on that five on three.

When the Habs got their game going they put the game away quickly and the Islanders season-long weaknesses were exploited as usual. Lukowich fanning on a shot and getting caught led to two penalties against the Islanders in one sequence was a killler as was Campoli getting caught on the 3-0 goal.

DiPietro had a fantastic save on Bulis at the end before his penalty.

As usual too little, too late at the end. Anyone with a story-line coming back here to play always seems to have a huge game against the Islanders, tonight it was Higgins.

All they can do is play New Jersey on Thursday.

They were outshooting Montreal 25-5, they worked, it was not good enough on this day.

If this stat doesn't summarize one of our MAJOR problems this year, I don't know what would:

Howie Rose stated near the end of the game that the Islanders have given up 26 more power play goals this year than the ENTIRE 2003-2004 season!

Now, I know scoring has increased, but GOOD GOD! There are 25 games remaining after the game tonight against Montreal.

The weak penalty killing of the Isles all starts in one place: POOR DEFENSEMEN!

If you look at the Isles forwards, they have many solid penalty killers: Bates, Blake, Hunter, York, etc.

It's the players like Sopel and occasionally Campoli and Martinek (they both definitely struggled tonight) that really hurt this team.

Anyone think this defense played well for snow and snow couldnt save a puck. Then play terrible for DP who actually did decent?

Well for this game isles who played well were Satan, Bouchard, and I thought Yashin actually played well too. Didn't notice sopel or zhitty too much, but as we have seen from KJ that could be a good thing. York did well and I love watching Nilsson play. What is funny is seeing Bonk, Kovalev, Yashin, and Kvasha all on the ice at once. Who is the biggest waste of talent there?

Well I think we are sellers now, but I won't go into that in this thread.

I'm surprised no one mentions the call on Dipietro. That was a brutal call by the referee to say the least.

I think Shaw should run mandatory twice a days for the next month. Not to drain them or anything, in one practice, just have them shoot at the net. Thats it. You have 200pucks(or more), however long you want to be out there is however long it takes you to SHOOT all the pucks into the net. And put some kind of cutout so they cant just shoot for the center. The number of times ive seen this team just shoot SO far away from the net is astounding.

I thought so too but with a minutes left and Campoli already letting the ref have it earlier I guess Koharski needed to get his quota for Colin Campbell and the game was decided at that point. DiPietro got two penalties if I'm correct for basically using his hip and was called for interference and then let the ref have it good.

Habs were in DiPietro's crease a lot in the third peiord, I did not see that at all with Snow.

Not really. Snow made some good saves but were not talking about a shutout defense or goalie in terms of this team. Outshooting the opposition 25-5, or whatever all season this team always finds a puck in it's net.

I guess Snow is an easy target here when he does not play well but the first goal was a good backhand from close in that found the post, the second goal was deflected from the point (by Asham) and with Yashin all over Koivu in the Canadians end of the ice, he still found a way to thread a pass that made me wonder where was Chris Campoli? It's not like Snow let up unscreened shots from the point with no deflections.

DiPietro made about three fantastic saves, the one on Bulis at the end was just unreal, that's where the defense fell apart along with Montreal getting their skating legs.

That call might've been soft but Dipietro was really inside the restricted zone but he didn't touch the puck. I thought that was the reason he got the penalty...obstruction sounds just strange.

Does anyone know if the goalies can skate around the restricted zone if he doesn't have the puck?
