It was an up and down week for the New York Islanders with a 1-2-0 record. What Islanders player stood out for the right or the wrong reasons. And who did both?

The best way to forget a poor road trip is to get right back on the ice and get a win. Thankfully for the New York Islanders, the Columbus Blue Jackets were coming to town.

The Blue Jackets had just played the night before against the Pittsburgh Penguins, winning 5-2. The Blue Jackets would be tired. Perfect for a team like the Islanders.

With a solid defensive effort that just wasn’t there out west (shy of the San Jose game at least) the Islanders were able to take both points at home against Columbus with a 2-0 shutout victory.

Across all three games this week – Anaheim, Los Angeles, Columbus – who stood out for the right, or wrong reasons (or maybe even both) for the New York Islanders?
