Aggressive Play Plan

from the Buffalo News,

The Islanders played soft and defensive in Game One, and it got them nowhere. They need to come out of their shell and engage the Sabres in a game of speed and finesse. That’s a dangerous strategy against the Sabres. But the Isles feel emboldened to open things up when DiPietro is back there covering for them.
“You can’t change your game just because it’s playoff hockey,” said Jason Blake. “The Sabres are the best four-line team in the league by far. What are you going to do, watch them skate around with the puck all day? We have to play the way we did when we won hockey games. We have to be more aggressive.”
Blake said the Isles are more confident with DiPietro in net. He even compared DiPietro with Martin Brodeur, Patrick Roy and other elite goalies.
