Islanders Finally Win
After watching this team play,and lose three in a row, it was nice to see the Islanders finally win. One of my biggest "difference makers" that I picked for this year was Mike Dunham, and he was brilliant. One of the keys to this years team is the backup goalie because last year, Garth Snow went 4-13 last year and had major surgeries on both knees, and was ineffective in the new NHL. With Dunham, the Islanders have a chance to win everytime. But a major problem for this team is their special teams. The Islanders are taking too many penalties, and the penalty killers and both goalies wont make it through the season if the penalties continue to climb. Good to see York and Hunter score also, both need to continue to produce.....For those of you who are hopefully reading this, this is an Islanders blog, devoted specifically to the New York Islanders. I will be updating as often as possible so i invite all hockey fans, and Islanders fans to please read and enjoy. More to come. Next Game: Home against Boston.
