It was another down week for the New York Islanders as they hit the road for their West Coast trip. They dropped two of three this week.

It was almost a blessing that the New York Islanders only had three games in this stretch. It’s been a tough start to the season for this team.

In this past week they lost a game in overtime to the Pittsburgh Penguins, a game in which they actually played half decent against the defending champs. The frustrating part certainly was that they played well enough to win but couldn’t finish, and Anthony Beauvillier‘s goal went to waste.

On Tuesday they hit the road to California, they were leading 2-1 after the first period against the Ducks. But, the Isles let the Ducks tie it up in the third period and we were headed back to overtime.

This time it went to a shootout, something the Islanders have struggled with this year. It took 14 rounds and a lot of nail biting but the Islanders were able to pull it off thanks to Nick Leddy.

They followed that game up with another one on Wednesday in Los Angeles. Anders Lee scored a couple of goals but the Isles couldn’t keep up as the Kings blew it open late and won 4-2.

Here are your winners and losers from this past week:
