Isles SO Win in Ottawa 4 - 3

It was a good game for two teams who are struggling for points and facing injury problems. There were no scraps, no misconducts, no problems. But there was the classic voice of Jiggs McDonald, Grabners 25th goal and Josh Bailey's first in 22 games.

I'll tell you though, I was actually nervous about having Lawson in net last night on his first day off the IR. He proved me wrong.

I'd also like to say that Travis Hamonic surprises me every game. The on-ice maturity this kid shows is just awesome to watch. When Garth Snow said that the development of Travis Hamonic and Andy McDonald into the Islanders top D pairing gave him the confidence to trade veteran James Wisniewski -- he meant it.

Home game Thursday. Be there and show your support for the team and the organization who has taken a lot of heat in the press recently.

Is it me, or does Ty Wishart look like a guy that's got a future with this team? That pass on Comeau's goal was beautiful, and he looks comfortable playing D.
