With the exception of the Isles first line, there has been very little offensive production during the Isles recent three game losing streak. Matt Moulson, PA Parenteau, and John Tavares have great chemistry, but beyond those three there has been minimal production and few scoring chances.
The Coliseum was rockin’. The fans were ready. The season ticket holders who have had season tickets for all 40 seasons were at center ice for puck drop. The hype was there. The expectations were justified. The team did a great job with the player introductions. But, there was one thing missing. The team forgot there was a hockey game to be played. They didn’t show up. There is no excuse.
The Islanders open their preseason slate on Friday night when they face the Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins. The Islanders will play three games in five nights to kickoff the preseason as they face the Devils on Saturday night in their home opener in Nassau Coliseum and then play the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night in a game televised by the NHL Network. The Friday and Saturday games will not be televised, but will be streamed live on newyorkislanders.com.
