Abel to Yzerman

Quick Recap- DRW/NYI

The Islanders scored 3 goals in 4 1/2 minutes early in the first period and never looked back.

They coasted to an 8-2 win over the Wings, who in my opinion, hit rock bottom tonight.

Next game is Friday when the Penguins are in town.

Detroit goal and stats are below.

If you’re going to be bad, be historically bad.

Not sure how Biega and Lashoff got out with a 0 plus/minus playing 18 minutes in an 8 goal-against game, but good for them.

I turned on the game,  stepped away to get a bite to eat, and came back to a score of 3-0. At that point, I just couldn’t.

Glad to see Smith tallied his first goal, and Hronek grabbed one too… but still. This just looks like an awful game, and knowing Howard started tonight told me everything I needed to know about why we were down that bad before the ten minute mark of the first.

Howie hasnt been good, but when ya dont watch the game, sh*tting on Howie is a tough pill to swallow when you also dont look at the missed assignments by the dudes in front of him.

Couldn’t watch last night, watching tonight with my baby.
We usually stick it out, but might pull the plug early on this one.

Failure to act further enables.  Just sayin.
