Panic, fear and hysteria are appropriate words to describe a good percentage of the Islanders’ fan base now that we are a week into free agency and just a fourth-line center and some prospects have been signed. All I can say is, relax people.
Chris Kunitz scored the only goal in the shootout and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the New York Islanders 4-3 on Friday night to avenge a record-setting, fight-filled loss.
Alexander Semin snapped a tie 5:41 into the third period, and Michal Neuvirth made 29 saves for the Washington Capitals, who rallied for a 3-2 victory over the New York Islanders on Saturday night.
Kyle Okposo scored twice, including a go-ahead goal in New York’s big second period, and rookie goaltender Kevin Poulin stopped 25 shots, leading the Islanders to a 4-1 victory over the Atlanta Thrashers on Tuesday night.
Jakub Voracek scored a rebound goal 2:31 into overtime to lift the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 4-3 victory on Wednesday night and send the New York Islanders to their 14th straight loss.
If you are not yet convinced the hockey gods hate the Islanders, the last few days should’ve given you a refresher course.
