The Islanders are hot. Why do these crappy teams get hot when they're pretty much already out of the playoffs ? It is time for TO to get hot too I guess.
Detroit lost to Colorabi last night (not that I'm scoreboard watching even though I am) so we are up by 1 point with two games in hand. Detroit doesn't play until friday so if we clobber these snowed in New Yorkers (Rangers on thursday) we will be up by 5 on Detroit. Coincidentally, these are the two teams we lost to in our only cup appearances so a business like drubbing is warranted.
Missed most of the game because I was watching my kid play some B-Ball. Got the highlights and I must say that the Islanders just need some real guidance and veteran leadership. They aren't too bad of a team, just young.
A rare win the shootout tonight, thanks to Kesler and Luongo reading the right moves.

Not bad for a team that is 2-3 in OT and 2-3 in the shootout. And that is a real reflection of how good this team is. We're first overall in the NHL with a really bad OT and shootout record. That could be good news when it comes to the playoffs if we don't let all this success go to our heads. ("We" and "our" being the players, of course).
