Figured I would start this up. Currently the Isles are down 1-0. They lost the first game 4-1. The good news is that Rick DiPietro has been cleared to play and is a gametime decision in Buffalo for Game 2.
Goaltending clearly wasnt the problem in Game 1 but DP makes the team much more confident in every area. He moves the puck better than our defenseman contributing to the offense and the D can move up into the play more knowing that DP is back there and not Dubie. The question is, is Ricky really going to be healthy and there is gonna be a little bit of rust.
The Islanders are obviously a serious longshot in this series but there seems to be a little magic in this team and hopefully they can continue to compete and pull off the upset.

Very impressive win by the Icelanders tonight. They came out aggressive, DiPi was sharp and 2 goals from their blueline. Looks like we have a series here.

No offense to Dubie, but this team is able to be a hell of a lot more aggressive with Dipietro on the ice.

The Coliseum is gonna be bumpin on Monday

It's amazing how much different a team they are with The Rick in net. They play loose, aggressive and just plain old better. I thought it was pretty clear tonight at least who the better goaltender was. The next two on LI should be great. They have to keep up the intensity and get off to hot starts.

Let's Go Islanders!!!!!
