3 - 2 Islanders win, Second over the Sens

So the last few minutes of the game were incredibly tense.
So we all thought we had seen this movie before and the team that was trailing 3 - 0 for 40 minutes comes back to tie it up and ultimately win in the shoot out. But someone re-wrote the ending and instead Joey MacDonald was the number one star of the game and Scott Gordon looked pleased in the press room.

It was a good night.

"Greasy goals. That's Islanders Hockey." is what I heard Joey tell CJ Papa during the on ice post game as we were walking through the tunnel. He said it again in the locker room.

"Skate, skate, skate boys!" is what Gordon told the media he heard Doug Weight say on the bench during the third. Looks like they took his advice.

Once again, Bailey looked great despite the ill-timed penalty. He's still young, but I believe he won't be making rookie mistakes for very long.
I'm thinking Tambellini should start carrying large amounts of cash in his hockey pants. Maybe he can buy a goal.

All in all, it was a really good night at the Coliseum. A charity went back to the office $18,000 richer. Fans left knowing tomorrow is Chili day at Wendy's (thanks to Chris Campoli and his game winning goal.), and a group of bloggers left the building smiling because the mood in the room was far better than it had been in a long time.

On a side note, they are offering up for sale a really cool Islanders ball cap that lights up on the logo. I was fascinated by it, and for only $25, it looks like a great Christmas gift idea! You can't see it well in the photo, but go check it out.
It will take a while for the Starbucks to wear off. Guess I'll go read what everyone else that crowded into the locker room had to say tonight too.

'Nite all.
