Can we help Housley's development by setting him in the press box?
Amazing they're still only 4 pts out. If we can get back some good run from the goalies and continue to clean up their own end (much better last wknd), I like their chances this week. We're due for a good run from Jack & hope Reino keeps it going and his line pots a few. Sorry for the non doom n gloom post
Agreed and if we win both can gain some nice momentum.
Hoping for a big game from our top players. Feel bad about Cj, how much worse must we be? 10 pts back from a wildcard spot? Its so sad watching a promising season slip away after so many bad seasons in a row.

According to Eric Hornick, this marks the first time since Feb. 19, 2015 the Islanders have held a five-point lead in their division.
welp, so much for a little optimism, Sobotka I Choose you!
If Mittelstadt out what happens?
Rodrigues takes his 2C spot and then we see Smith-Sobotka-Thompson.
Poor Smith, really thought he would be back in FOR SURE after a loss. Silly me.
At least its not Elie replacing him
Guess Ullmark is the starter these days.
Oh God he actually said that. LOL. He may as well have come out and said Lehner struggled here because our organization completely sucks.
I believe what would help Phil is called a lobotomy.
Watch Sobotka play 2C and Smith LW3
Watching these two teams its all about coaching.Is there anybody on this board who thought the Islanders would make the playoffs? Goes to show what a good coach does
Who expected Vezina caliber goaltending from Lehner? just sayin...
Housley probably thinks Hunwick is helping Dahlin because he is a vet.
This pairing isnt working..
Why put the youngest player on the D with the worst d man in the line up..
He should be burried with Scandella on the bottom pair.
No Smith ...but Suc%bota and Pommincorpse
Who expects a team to miss the playoffs after leading the league in November (over 90% probability to get in)
A lot of incompetence and hand sitting is necessary to make a less than 10% probability come true..
trying to tank Rochester as well?
Seems that's all this team knows how to do. Tank
I think it's worse than that. I'm pretty sure we're going to be the first team to ever miss while being in first place after Thanksgiving, and didn't our first place last into early December?
I know what should happen...
Smith-Reinhart- Sheary ?
