"NYI247, where real fans talk Islanders hockey"
NY • United States • 2011 Years Old • Male
Some people seem to think that something good always comes away from something bad.

Well that just may be what happened to the Islanders after Tuesdays tough loss in the winding down seconds of the third period and ultimately finalized in OT.

Holding a 1-0 lead with just a few seconds remaining to the game they gave up the tying goal and later in OT Ovechkin sealed the Caps victory.

It was a tough loss. Being able to be in that game after a solid outing by Nate, only to lose it at the end is hard. I think the Islanders (especially Grabner) knew they let that one get away. To be honest I am kind of glad they did if it means triggering a string of performances like we saw last night.

Everything clicked last night. The Power play was huge. Tavares was especially AMAZING, and KO looked ridiculously sharp too. Their passing was crisp, they were shooting, they were having fun with the lines, and most of all they won the game.

Oh and Trevor Gillies came back, took a few shifts, took a cheap shot, and got sent packing again. He has a league hearing tomorrow in Toronto. I hope he gets a 10 game ban for this one. I know we all have sympathy for the "family man" but hey buddy if not for human decency, stop taking the cheap shots for your family. They are the ones who rely on your pay check. I just don't think there is room for a player so set on hurting people. It makes the team look bad, makes our kids targets, and is just so unprofessional. I mean he was back for all of 5 minutes from his 9 game suspension for a hit to the head.

I had fun with the Penguins fight night game. We all did. I didn't hear one Islanders fan condone what Gillies did in that game and I don't hear it now. There is a difference between tough and stupid and I think Gillies just crossed that line. Maybe that poop is OK in the AHL. Maybe that is where he belongs.

There was controversy with the hit Matt Martin put on Talbot in that infamous game. I enjoyed it. Talbot had it coming. I enjoyed the over abundance of fighting. I enjoy all fighting in the NHL. I don't enjoy cheap shots and I don't enjoy intentional hits that threatens a players career.

Now that our goon will be gone for a while, we can get back to hockey for the rest of the season.

I am glad we had a very uneventful trade deadline. I think to get rid of any of the pieces that have gotten us to where we are today belong here. I am glad no major moves were made and I think the moves made prior to the deadline will help us tremendously going into the next season.

For the remainder of this season continue to watch the growth of players like Matt Martin, Blake Comeau, Grabner, A-Mac, Hamonic, and Montoya. Watch for more Bridgeport call ups as the season winds down. Hopefully someone else can be a missing piece to the puzzle.

Gilles has been over that line for a long long time as for the pieces that got you where you are today their pieces of crap much like the franchise, and your hockey insight.

awww looks like another uneducated islander fan. First off 'islesfornow' "whinny" not a word. GED's do come in handy so you should obtain one.

Also no one can say mario looks like a idiot because gillies latest incident just proved his statement 100% accurate. Also anyone who supports martin actions on talbot also must support bertuzzis attack on moore. If thats the case then there is no point in argueing with that person because you cant fix stupid.

Nyi247 I know u are trying to sound like a true fan of hockey by saying gilles actions are not welcomed by isles fans. U probably do mean that. And I almost believe u then u follow it up with the comment on the Martin punch on talbot. Stop taking cheap shots on your family is what u said about gilles correct? Martins punch was not a cheap shot in your opinion?

U don't enjoy cheap shots? Throwing a punch that he doesn't see coming is not a cheap shot? U also said u enjoyed watching that happen to him. Then u follow it up with I don't enjoy cheap shots and I dont enjoy intentional hits that threaten a players career. A sucker punch from behind doesn't threaten to harm a players career?

SPORTFREAK13 HAHAHAHA MY NON-EXISTENT WORD OBVIOUSLY UPSET YOU HAHA......BY THE WAY BURTIZZI'S ATTACK WAS FROM BEHIND, OBVIOUSLY TALBOT SAW THE PUNCH..HE BLOCKED THE INITIAL ONE......AND MARIO MAY HAVE NOT BEEN A DIRTY PLAYER (DEFINITELY A "WHINNY" ONE) UNLESS HE WAS SHOOTING THE PUCK AT THE REFEREE FOR A CALL AGAINST HIM (WAH WAH)!!!! DIRTY? NO, I BET CLASSY. RIGHT? P.H.D. (PUBLIC HIGH-SCHOOL DIPLOMA)

I'm actually not a "high-pitched neigh" Pens fan and I would think you would have a P.H.S.D. I like that you looked up and posted the meaning of the word Whinny. I especially like that you proved your retardation by showing everyone that you used that word to describe someone. Get back under NYI247's desk and get that thing back in your mouth.

This Pens/Isles shit is still going on?Pen fans get over it already.Here are the facts.Gillies is a cheapshot artist,Mario is crying bitch(was a great player but face the facts)Isles won that game and are missing the playoffs(don't think that doesn't sting)Pens lost and are going to the Playoffs(Without Crosby, they are going nowhere though)That's life ,get over it.

Talbot blocked the initial punch and they were having words. Big difference there. If Martin wouldn't have said anything and just skated up to him and popped him thats one thing but the videos show another

haha its so easy upset you guys. So i have a question if the martin punch was so legit why the suspension? I didnt find a video of that incident that showed them talking was someone mic'd up and theres a video of it or are you just sputtering trying to recover your latest idiotic comment?

I am not upset over the 9-3 game and dont even think about it anymore because it was just one game. I just like to make fun of islander fans becasue one its easy (like their team is to beat) and i read blogs like this for sheer amusement.

haha good one about the complaining (no sarcasm)!actually you meant come "off" theres two f's in off. Spellings tough but you get the hang of it. Correction Cindy is a girls name Sidney is the name of a Stanley cup champion! I do like the use of the word "moot" though. Thats the most adult 4 letter word you have used yet!

Nyi247 I don't know what u watched then because Martins hit was cheap. U are an idiot.

Isles4fornow it's PPS not PSS PS stands for post script PPS being Post Post Script. I don't think you're twelve or a 21 year old being breast fed, I do however think you wear a helmet when you're out of your padded room.
