New York Islanders Three Stars: The Ex’s Edition
Third Star: Alan Quine
Alan Quine scored tonight to give the Islanders the lead in the second period. On a power play none-the-less.
Side note: The Isles power play was 100% efficient tonight.
But it wasn’t just his goal that gets Quine on the list. It’s his all-around play. He did everything right tonight. Except for maybe being on the ice for that Matt Moulson power play goal to tie the game.
He killed penalties like a boss. Diving at pucks, in front of pucks, and just doing anything within his power to make sure that puck didn’t go in the net. Or to make sure Jack Capuano doesn’t scratch him again.
Not sure how that’s going to go for him. With Casey Cizikas missing due to injury the decision was pretty easy for Capuano. Once Cizikas is healthy again, Quine goes right to the top of the chopping block.
