With a 1-3-1 record this week, the New York Islanders didn’t do a lot of things well. Thankfully, some players still had a good enough week to be considered winners.

It was a tough week for the New York Islanders. Outside of that buoyant 8-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings, there wasn’t much to celebrate.

Sure, they came within a minute of getting at least a point against the Rangers. They were 4-1 up on the Washington Capitals before a third-period collapse. And they got a point against the Carolina Hurricanes.

But they picked up three points from a possible ten with a 1-3-1 record. That’s not playoff-type hockey. Certainly not when the rest of the division is catching up to them, and quick.

Regardless of how poorly the week went, there were still a few good performances from some of the roster. Namely, Anthony Beauvillier who put up five points this week.
