That was a beautiful play.... I was beginning to fall asleep there. This game is tough to watch after the excitement of last night.

Tampa still leading 3-1... but if we don't win tonight, that really won't matter.

I really feel the loss of York tonight. I think Hunter does too.

By the way did anyone notice Bouchard's reaction after the Satan goal? He was amped. I love that guy. It's like he's been an Islander for 10 years and he really wants to win.

Also, I think I'll be adding Sean Hill to Darth's "All-Disliked thread".

Dammit. 5-3 Tampa. This is bad.

Well, I wouldn't want to dump him, but you can hang the goat on him tonight. Perfect screen on game winning goal. Going offsides on that odd man rush. Then showing horrible awareness on that empty net goal, not moving until Gelinas had skated past him.

Isles looked worn out and tired during the 2nd and 3rd periods. They would definately appreciate the day off tomorrow.

Didnt Blake go offsides last nite as well when the islanders were coming up on a rush when there was under a minute left against the thrashers?

Guys, a bit premature with the Blake bashing. Yeah, he has been off ever since those injuries late in '05, but he has been the guts of this team for the better part of a few seasons. I'll agree that he has been way off of his game, and tonight was a perfect example. But I won't be calling for his head anytime soon.

i have no idea since its st pattys day and ive been drinking since 2, but was that 3rd goal against The Rick really bad? I was watching in a bar, it looked like it just went under his stick which was flat. I thought that was like goalkeeping 101?

It didn't go under his stick, it deflected off his shoulder...

You can fault him for cheating a little too quickly off the post and to the left, and being back in the net too much. And you can ding Blake for laying a screen, and not actually blocking the shot. It was a play he could have stopped, and honestly should have, but you can't really kill him for letting it in. It developed into a fairly tough play very quickly, with one of the defenseman on his stomach behind the net.

Watch if we beat Tampa and Montreal, the whole "season over" shananigans will be over and then it will be something like "we have a chance", "shaw for coach of the year" "bates only has 1 nut" etc etc.

So guys just save your negativity until tuesday thats all I ask.

There shouldnt be no negitivity at all. In all reality we shouldnt even be fighting over a playoff spot from how we played the 1st 58 games of the season. As far as I'm concerned we should be enjoying how competitve we played in recent games.

Were asking a team of mostly rookies to cover up all the heartless games the veterans played in the beginning of the year and win every game from now on. There playing there heart out there and showed better work ethic than Sopel, Kvasha, Niinimaa put together. There working as a team and there playing into their system. Good to see.

Hard to blame anyone for a loss here, an awful lot was being asked (especially losing someone like York without a recall arriving) and clearly at times they were hanging on, but still for the most part they played a disciplined game and stayed out of the box and did as well as they could with the pressure. Smith's penalty was a bad one and it cost them but they had plenty of time to get it back and did.

Looks like the three games in four nights short a forward and not using Godard, Colliton or Nilsson (toward the end) caught up with them because they were a step slow tonight and really got little pressure on McLennan after a descent first peirod.

A few mistakes by Grebeshkov and the other defenders (Erskine was fantastic at both ends and sent Olli J crashing into the boards) but still the mistakes the team was making tonight were night and day compared with earlier this year when this team looked lost and they worked as hard as they could.

DiPietro was outstanding again, too many shots from dead center fifteen feet out that he was flat-out robbing some players on.

Satan has his two goals.

Huge gift to have McLennan in the net instead of Luongo, still he made some big saves on Yashin, Bergenheim and had to earn his two points. DiPietro's pass set up Blake's breakaway, sad to see anyone blame Blake for anything who has not been the same since his rib injury but still is doing all he can.

Not even close to being over, they have to beat Montreal and they have to find a way to get points Sunday. This teams working hard and they are not going to go away without a tough fight and clearly they gave all they had.

In the end this game could have easily gone the Islanders way, too bad Yashin's shot did not count.

Even in losing I'm proud of how hard this team is working now, if it's not good enough so be it but it's night and day even from many of the wins earlier.

I would rather watch this team fight it out and lose then the team that was iced at the beginning of the year. This I hope is the beginning of something good for the next few years.

The boys were clearly worn out and hurting from the unexpectedly physical Thrasher game. Still they played with what jump and energy they could muster. Down a forward (York) only increased the fatigue factor, plus Shaw's poor use of Nilsson. I am disturbed that Nilsson was moved off the Yashin line, even though Bergie seems to be more the key than Robert. But putting Blake up is a killer. I would rather have tried Colliton if he had to do something on RW.
Last 10 games show that we have an NHL goalie, a future scoring first line, and some nice options for 5-6 defenseman. I like what Ersk and Bouchard bring to those spots. The new GM may not have as hard a rebuild as we thought.

These guys are being asked to play more minutes than they should have to. Give Bouchard credit for coming back at less than 100%. Marty takes a beating night in and night out. Zhitnik's minutes are hard to absorb. I am liking Grebshkov and Erskine.
