NEW YORK, NY – FEBRUARY 12: New York Islanders fans celebrate a goal by Anders Lee /

Three Stars

1. Islanders Fans That Came To The Game

You deserved better then what was on display tonight. The Islanders had no excuse to be this poor. Yes, it was the Bruins who are second in the Atlantic. And yes the Isles aren’t typically good against them.

But a 5-0 loss? And 15 shots on net? It was a pathetic display from what is supposed to be a top club in the Metropolitan Division. Again, pathetic.

2. Sean Kuraly: 2 Goals

I’ve never heard of Sean Kuraly in my life. And I never want to hear his name again. His first goal was a total fluke and bounced in after Lehner tried and failed to get a glove on his shot.

But I guess you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.

Kuraly then added a second as he found himself alone in the slot. It’s hard to say when the game was done and dusted, but Kuraly’s second and the Bruins third was surely the nail in the coffin for the Isles.

3. Tuukka Rask: 13 saves, 0 goals-against (sarcasm ensues)

Big props to Tuukka Rask for putting in one heck of an effort. He stopped all 13 shots he faced from the Islanders on the night.

He might have to jump on the bike after the game just to make sure he gets his cardio in.

Tuukka is going to take this shut out to the bank. He barely had to put a shift in as his team eliminated any threat the Isles could possibly muster.
