New York Islanders Daily: Josh Ho-Sang Sparks Comeback
The New York Islanders rookie sensation Josh Ho-Sang helped spark a comeback after things were looking bleak for nearly two periods.
For the first period and a majority of the second, the only good thing about the game was Thomas Greiss. The New York Islanders looked pretty awful as they kept giving up scoring opportunity after scoring opportunity but luckily only fell behind by two goals.
As time was winding down in the second Josh Ho-Sang scored his third goal of the year to make it a one-score game. Then a few short moments later it was 2-2 courtesy of Jason Chimera. The game would go into the third period tied.
The score would look the same at the end of the third and this one needed overtime. The Isles put John Tavares, Nick Leddy and Josh Ho-Sang out for the start of overtime and I nearly fainted.

The amount of speed and skill with those three is insane so to have them on the ice to start was a pleasure to watch. JT would end it on a Ho-Sang drop pass and the comeback was complete.
