Again, great effort. I like the way we are progressing. Plus we are positioning ourselves for the long term.

It was a good effort last night against a better team. At this point that's all you can ask for. Plus the Isles are that much closer to Tavares/Hedman.

Odds are the Isles will continue to give great efforts every night and continue to make progress. But at the end of the day they're still going to lose a lot more than they win over the final 11 games. There's really nothing to complain about with these guys. There's certainly something here that you can build with.

Last night Carolina was not the superior team. They were down right lucky the officiating was horrible particularly on the Carolina's third goal, which was goaltender interference. They dominated the third period but the "gift" from the officials at the end of the second period changed the momentum. Carolina is no better than an eighth seed in the east assuming they qualify for the playoffs. Their effort in a game against the worst team in the east was very inconsistent considering they are fighting for a playoff berth.

Greg...for 27 years we've been screaming this...it starts with Colin Campbell's one sided view of the Islanders and trickles down to the ice...this isn't the first time, it won't be the last...but thanks for the article it's about time someone stood up for this team...

Even as a Ranger fan that game was a little biased. I was rooting for the Isles because the Rangers cannot afford for any of the teams behind them to win. Isles played better hockey but the officiating was questionable.
