Islanders Finish Year of Almosts With Game 7 Loss

Islanders Insight's picture

Boston Bruins v New York Islanders

This one hurt more than most. The Islanders surprised everyone with a 101 point regular season and looked unstoppable in the first half of the year. But injuries caught up with them and they stumbled down the stretch. What was looking like a first place finish turned into a third place finish and another year of almost. The Isles almost had home ice. They almost made it to Round 2 this year. They almost took control of the series in Game 2. They almost made everyone forget about the failures of the past. Unfortunately, hockey is not a game of almosts. They almost won this one, but they didn’t. A late third period goal by Evgeny Kuznetzov did the Isles in, and they fell 2-1 in Game 7 to the Capitals.

Most of my Islander memories took place at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, my dorm room at SUNY Oswego, or on the couch at my mom’s house. This one, however, caught me by surprise.

With the echoes of ‘Let’s Go Islanders’ chants fresh in my memory from Saturday’s Game six win at the Coliseum, I set off back to Central New York after arriving on Long Island 24 hours earlier.

The night before the game, my friend from high school sent me a message, “Is it too late to ask you if you want to go to the game?” he asked, “I know it’s a long drive for you.” I responded, “Not too late. It’s certainly not ideal, but it’s not too late.”

The game that most predicted would happen before this series began will be played tonight in the nation’s capital; Game 7 between the New York Islanders and the Washington Capitals. With the Islanders down 3 games to 2, Game 7 didn’t look like a certainty last Saturday, but the Islanders are here thanks to a 3-1 victory in Game 6 in front of their home crowd at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

Hockey from the Blind Side, It’s Time to Silence the Doubters

View From Section 317's picture

The New York Islanders have now tied their best of 7 game series with the Washington Capitals and have forced a game 7 in Washington on Monday evening. This, I firmly believe, is a shocker to some of the hockey media and so called “experts”. I have read in so many places and have heard the opinions of so many people who believed the “upstart” Islanders were going to be put down rather quickly by the bigger and badder, Capitals.

After last night’s 5-1 drubbing to the Washington Capitals, the Islanders head back to Long Island, down 3-2 in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference Quarterfinals series. It’s hard to fathom, but one more loss sends the Islanders packing to Brooklyn.

Last night’s game just did not go the Islanders’ way, as they were outshot, outscored, and by the end of the game, outmanned. Calvin de Haan adds to the unfortunately large list of injured defenseman, becoming the third member of the six man defensive corps to miss some time in the playoffs.

New York Islanders: Now What?

The Islanders have one option, forget this awful mess of a game and simply get it done. Yes that was embarrassing.  There is no drawing board to go back to, this is it.  The Islanders have backed themselves into the corner and the inevitable end is near.  It is very hard to remain positive after […]
