Isles 5 - Sens 2/5/11

And I freakin' MISSED IT!!!

I couldn't believe the Tweets that were coming over my phone while I was at a Fire Dept. Installation dinner. The goals, the fights, the penalties.

The Islanders chased Sens goalie Brian Elliot from the net early. Matt Moulson scored the first goal of the period at 4:10 of the first, something the Islanders haven't been able to do recently.

But it didn't last long, 13 seconds to be exact, and the Senators tied it at one. Then Grabner put the Isles on the board for two and less than three minutes later, Mike Fischer tied it again. Before the end of the first, Kovalev and Schremp had tied the game at three.

There were nine penalties called in the second period. Two on John Tavares and one ,and one ten minute game misconduct call on Andy MacDonald. Yep, the game was frustrating.

But the one penalty that everyone was talking about was the one that Robin Lehner took for knocking Kevin Poulin on his butt. I have a post over at trying to determine who was telling the truth.

The 19-year-old goalie took a swipe at the 20-year-old goalie because he got angry. Rob Schremp made a remark about not seeing anything like that since Pee Wee hockey. Considering the ages, these guys aren't that far removed.

Sidenote: Garth Snow will be answering questions on the second installment of The GM Show tomorrow at 1 pm on the Islanders website.
