    Yes, only a few points out of first place

    The Soundtigers played like the Islanders tonight. Coughed up a 2 goal lead and lost.

    Guess they want to fit in when they join Cappy's team

    Isles had a whopping 4 SOG in the third period. Cappy sure has them prepared to play a 60 minute game

    You picked the right game. Greiss came through and got us 2 points

    Rare ray of light tonight in a dismal season. Amazingly didn't finish the patented 3rd period "Cappy Collapse."

    I was there and thought it was going to happen. Still time to turn things around.. Amazingly Isles have not lost a game yet if leading after 2 periods.

    Ladd has looked like a solid player lately. He had 2 goals last night, 7 for the season.

    Halak in goal tonight. Looks like we will need to score 4 to win again.

    Greiss had two solid games in net for wins. Now some coaches would have rode the hit goaltender. Unfortunately we have Cappy. And not even dressing Greiss tonight just ridiculous. Facing the hottest goaltender in the league why is Berube out there?

    Berube has been the back up for most of the season. At least it gets him into games. I think Snow is telling Cappy who to start. I just hope Ledecky is watching this mess.

    Untill Ledecky actually does something so far he is not any different from the people who have owned this team the last 25 years

    By the way saying Snow is telling Cappy who to play is just speculation. Have not read anything to support that. Now maybe Snow telling Cappy to dress Berube as the backup but I assume Cappy decides which goaltender starts.

    I wish they could waive Snow and Cappy. Do they really think Berube is better than Halak. And isn't Greiss a free agent after this season ?

    This was the only way they could solve the goalie problem. I applaud Snow for making this move which had to have ownership approval. They will find out if Berube is better but he is on a league minimum 1 year deal and needs to play another 25+ games to retain his RFA status. Greiss can be resigned now, we hope he wants to stay. He deserves a big raise. Halak will most likely play for Bridgeport the rest of the season and they could use some good goaltending. Next year Halak will probably be bought out of his final year.

    So Islanders start the new year playing two of the worst teams in the league and not winning either game. When they get good goaltending the offense goes into a coma

    The past 2 games have been gut wretching to watch. Greiss is doing everything he can to win these games by himself. The entire team needs to wake the hell up. Sadly there is nothing that can be done besides adding Steve Bernier to the lineup. Oh and way to scratch Beauvilier 2 straight games. That is real good for his development. If they are not going to play him then send him back to the juniors and gain an extra year of free agency. Clearly he isn't the problem so put him back in the lineup.

    It's Nino all over again. Waste a 19 year old by having him ride the press box or only play 10 minutes a game. Sadly neither Dal Colle or Ho Sang are close to being ready for the NHL right now.

    Right now Lee leads the team in goals but does not play in the OT. Greiss played great but you have to wonder a little why Berube was not in goal last night. Or is Greiss going to start every game. If Berube can't be trusted against a bad team when is he going to play.

    Another 1 goal game. Wonder how many games Isles have to lose before maybe the owner will decide a change in management is needed?

    Apparently nobody cares. Cappy just threatens players playing time but still sends out the same 12 forwards. Garth has no answers. The Owners are still figuring out this whole ownership business.

    The new owners bought into the team 2 years before they took control. Plenty of time to learn the operation . Amazing how virtually every Islanders owner has been terrible. Even Pickett turned bad once he retired to Florida around 1986.

    someone once suggested that amazingly, Spano could be argued to be the 3rd best owner in Islanders history, just because of the cable deal. It's not a completely crazy argument
