Kevin Poulin's NHL Debut

Had the game been an Islander win, this would have been Kevin Poulin's finest moment. But the kid stopped everything he faced and should be proud of his effort.

You can see the disappointment in Matt Moulson and the inability of the power play to convert on a five on three gift. But without Frans Nielsen in the line-up, this was a game that just got away from them.

The trite yet true "Manage the puck, manage the clock" mantra should have been followed last night. It wasn't.
