What's Better than an Islanders Win?? 11-4-08

Why an Islanders win at MSG of course!

For a game that was considerably... um... boring, it had a very exciting ending.

Joey MacDonald is proving himself to be the NHL quality goalie that Garth Snow felt he was when he handed him a one way contract. Nice to see him prove himself to all his detractors that were so vocal a few months ago.

Congratulations to Nate Thompson on his first NHL goal. They say you always remember the exact play for that goal. Well, Nate will be remembering a short handed surprise for the rest of his life.

It's also nice to have the Islanders leading the NHL in something. Currently they lead in short handed goals. Thank you Richard Park! And oddly today I did send out a message calling for another one from him. So nice of the Cosmos to comply. I'm still waiting for those lotto numbers though.

Trent Hunter missed the empty net with only seconds left, but gave up his body to block a final Ranger rush. I hope he didn't crack a rib on that block.

Congratulations gentlemen. That was important to us. As I said at the beginning of the season. Those Dynasty die-hards kept telling me the Islanders could have a terrible season as long as they beat the Rangers every time. This is a start.

Rest up for the trip. Thanks for the two points.

And now we wait for the election results. "Be careful what you wish for... History starts now."

Good night Islander Country.
