Again, slanted reporting. "The Blues might have been tired..." Any other subjective factors we should knoe about that leans towards the Islanders victory being slightly discredited? Did anyone eat too many whey protein shakes, and get gas? Gas on the bench just lingers on and on, smelly.

Impressive play. My nephew who does not even watch hockey said, "I don't understand, why are they spending the whole time in the Blues end of the ice". He is 12.

Let Dipietro ride the pine for as long as MacDonald is winning. Making way too big of deal out of this.
We don't need 70% DP in the beginning of the season. It's more important to have 90-100% DP at the end of the season.

How about the fact that they were playing the Blues? a team that will contend with the Isles for a top 3 pick in next years draft.

the NHL in their infinite wisdom decided to schedule a Ranger/devils game and an Islanders game on the same night the GIANTS are playing Monday night football. And they wonder why ratings aren't great. GENIUS!

At least the Islander game is in the afternoon, so you can watch that uninterrupted. I'll be remote flicking tonight....

Something he said that was not accurate? Most publications are picking both teams to be at or near the bottom of their respective conferences. If you can't handle the truth, maybe you should stop reading and posting, ya big baby ya....
