The New York Islanders ended their season on a six-game win streak. A silver lining to the end of a disappointing season.
Since the New York Islanders were already eliminated Sunday’s game was certainly lacking that intense vibe. It was a more somber tone as the Isles took the ice with only their pride left to play for.

For Brock this was his best statistical year (points wise) but he left Isles fans frustrated and wanting more. He spends too many nights missing in action while displaying his impressive wrist shot on only rare occasions.
Chimera overachieved in my eyes. Sure he matched his goal total from last year, but I was expecting Chimmer to be a fourth-line grinder type. He was a huge upgrade from Matt Martin (as much as I loved Matty).
So those two got their 20th goals of the year while the team ended their season on a hot note. Missing the playoffs burns but at least they can hold their heads high as the team fought tough down the stretch.
Isles Tweet Of The Day
Garth Snow can be blamed for a lot of what went wrong for this team. His headscratchers and failed rebuild is enough to get him fired.

This is certainly true, the Isles have a ton of questions to be answered this summer. From John Tavares to the goalie situation it’ll never be dull.
