Islanders Need To Regain Fans Trust

from Newsday,
When the Islanders skated out of the tunnel to face Buffalo, they were greeted by a season-low crowd of 8,861 fans. Playing as if the life had been sucked out of them, the Islanders suffered a 3-0 shutout loss that left most in the crowd yawning, except for when they were booing....
Ted Nolan said,
The fans know how important they are to us and how much encouragement the players get from them. But the flip side is that we can't ask them to be loud if we don't give them something to be loud about. It's a Catch-22. We've got to perform to get them on our side." It's not going to happen overnight. Still, the lack of excitement over the Buffalo game never would have happened in a lot of other places in the NHL.
