Islanders Need To Get Better

from Mark Herrmannof Newsday,

Welcome to the playoffs. The Islanders barely had time to wipe their feet on that nice friendly mat, buoyant about taking that first step into the postseason. And they found out it was a trap door. Oops.

The best the Islanders can say after their 5-0 drubbing in their first postseason game since 2007 is that they got it out of the way. The next best thing is that the Islanders are decidedly more of an underdog now than they were at 7:30 , a few minutes before the opening faceoff against the Penguins. Being in the position to overcome something has summoned the best from these Islanders.
