Let’s See What Happens

from Newsday,

Still, if Zach Johnson can win the Masters and if Blake can be the Islanders’ first 40-goal scorer since Zigmund Palffy in 1998 ... Well, isn’t it at least OK to dream a little?
“Obviously, we’re playing a great opponent with a lot of firepower. But we worked our way into the playoffs, and let’s see what happens,” Blake said, having had the best goal-scoring season of his career since he had 50 in junior hockey with the Waterloo Hawks in Iowa, Johnson’s home state.
As much as Blake admires Woods, the Islanders dynamo of a right wing is a lot more like Johnson, who wasn’t even the best player at Drake University. “Not very many guys are fortunate enough to be the best right off the bat,” Blake said. “You’ve just got to keep working ... and hope someday you get your break.”
