It was all on the line against the Hurricanes last night. A win and the Fishy Men would still have a chance at the Stanley Cup. But then, the puck came out in front and it went by Mannino and it was over, our hopes were gone. You let us down Mannino. and u 2 comeau and where wuz dougie the geezer and where wuz ricky d when we needed them most. a sad, sad day. the architect weeps and chico cries and all those days of toil to no avail, as the isles chances are gone. they are gone.

It was all on the line against the Hurricanes last night. A win and the Blueshirts would still have a chance at the Stanley Cup. But then, the puck came out in front and it went by Limpwrist and it was over, our hopes were gone. You let us down, Limpwrist, with your hanging out at questionable Chelsea clubs with Avery! Our past prostitutes weep: O Gretzky! O Messinger! But for me? I have sloppy seconds on Sean tonight after Harvey Fierstein does him good! We can do it! 1 cup in 70 years!!!

I keep hearing how great the Islanders play and how they are constantly victimized by the referees, parking attendants, whoever. But the reality remains. They are the worst team in the NHL. Oh Yeah!

No respect from a last place team with has been's, can't do, and never will be's? And a backup goalie as the GM who employs the revolving coach's seat to cover his insecurities?

The Isles looked slow and out of their league in the first period of play. Then all of a sudden 4 straight goals? Im certainly impressed. Yea the refs blew a bunch of calls but we needed to end the streak. Too many wins and now we have Tampa and Phoenix to be concerned about for the draft.

Hey fans! Great game last night. We only lost by one goal, which is like really good. A few more wins and we will be next to worst in the entire league. And with Ricky D returning next year, I see good things. Also, I recommend buying stock in AIG. over and out.

Yes, Dino. We were ripped off. We are really the best team in the league, but we always get ripped off. that's the ticket!

Greg's spin on this is bull$hit. Gordon only complained about the non calls because Greg asked him about it. They knew they lost the game mostly on their own. They were horrible in the first period and while they made up for it in the 2nd it wasn't enough against a fast and playoff bound team.
Don't believe everything Logan writes.

The refs were terrible, more calls that they let go that weren't mentioned, Gleasons hit on Park behind the net

I loved it when that tall dufus Franz decided to take on our hero, Colton Orr. Orr gave the dude the ole one two! Good job Colton Orr!
