The New York Islanders just cannot seem to find any flow to their game this year on a consistent basis.

One night, they look like world beaters in playing a consistent sixty minute effort and two days later, look completely lost, turning pucks over and watching lazily as they end up in the back of their net.

In the locker room they all seem to say the same thing. “We know what we have to do”,”It’s extremely frustrating”,”We seem to be making the same mistakes”,”We just have to keep plugging away”.

As passionate New York Islanders fans, we started our journey in earnest back in February 2013 and had one common goal in mind; be one of the leading sources of Islanders news and information on the internet.

We knew we would be facing some stiff competition, not only from competing blogs which had more of a ‘history’ and were clearly established in the market, but from the official site itself.

The New York Islanders began their three game road trip last night in negative fashion, losing 5-2 to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Islanders play summed up in three words: Lack of effort. The Islanders were making lazy plays, they weren’t crashing the net, and the defense certainly didn’t have a good night, as several of the Islanders 5 goals against were a result of sloppy defense throughout the game.
