You can look at this game 2 ways:

1) they looked like they didn't care in the first and before they woke up they were down 4-0, and too little too late, sloppy defense, shaky goaltending.

2) Not quitting after going down 4-0 and with coming back to make it 4-3 and then 5-4, and with a few bounces a different way by the puck the game could have been tied.

I tend to be more optimistic, but our defense was sloppy in our own end, there were 4 goals against that should not have been goals, and they sleepwalked through the first period.

Kristie, gotta hand it to your team, they came out firing in the first period, Ted Nolan is doing a he|| of a job over there. We'll get ya next time though.

I don't know if the Rangers sleepwalked through the first period. They played fairly well in the first seven or eight minutes and actually outshoot the Islanders in the first. It's just that they were plagued by the defensive breakdowns, which has hurt the team all season.

Wow, what a game.


I was very disappointed with the second period the Isles, were to relaxed and let the Rangers bring it. Isles have been known to do that all season, take large chunks of time off. At least it didn't bite them in the behind this time.


Shanny was an amazing pickup for the Rangers, he brought the Rangers back in that game, he is just fantastic.


Kozlov was outstanding as well, imagine that was the first time in 200 games between the Isles and Rangers that a guy from each team had a hat trick. Good Stuff.


Shawn Bates on that break away, should have scored, he needs to stop chewing on the mouthpiece....


Cannot wait for the next game!!!
