With respect to John Davidson – It was the Islanders who came out the happier team. To me – they just basically wanted this game more than the Rangers did.
As Al Trautwig said – it was a CONVINCING win for the Islanders.
I am feeling quite good.
Every player on this team, was excellent – I was very impressed with McDonald on defense. He stepped in for Gervais (who in my mind was the worst player on this team), and was impressive. Hillen was outstanding, and seems to improve his game every night. Nate Thompson sacrificing his body in the last seconds of the game.
Sim was a complete pest, and finally got his goal – his first in over a dozen. Okposo is on 14 – but he is playing so well – that once he gets that goal – he will be on a serious roll.
Congrats to Josh Bailey for finally getting shots on goal. He needs to do that on a consistent basis now.
Well – tomorrow is another day – and we hope that the Isles will get two more points in front of the Rangers.
