Flyers Fly Past Islanders In A Record Setting Blowout

Today's game was a record setting affair. It was the worst home shut out loss in team history.

The Isles, wearing their black alternate sweaters, went down to defeat at the hands of the Flyers with a final score of 7-0. However, the game probably wasn't even that close.

Isles Drop Third Straight Game To The Rangers

A Late Devils Power Play Leads To A Shutout Loss For The Isles

The New York Islanders were looking to continue their winning ways against the New Jersey Devils today in a Super Bowl Sunday matinee but came up short, surrendering three late goals in the third period for a final score of 3-0.

Special teams would be a key factor in this game, as the Islanders had a handful of power play chances in the first period that they were unable to connect on. In the end, a charging penalty on Isles defenseman, Brian Strait would ultimately lead to all three goals scored by the Devils. Steven Bernier received a bouncing puck off an Adam Henrique shot and was easily able to roof it over a sprawled Evgeni Nabokov, who had 24 saves on the night. Adam Greene had the secondary assist.

Just over a minute later, Bernier would strike again, this time at even-strength with the assists coming from Ryan Carter and Stephen Gionta.

David Clarkson would add an empty netter, which also gave Greene another helper for the night.

License to Kill: New York Islanders

With seven games in the books, Islander fans are left feeling oddly confident and pleasantly surprised with the team's success to begin their season. With a tough road trip that traveled through the cities of Toronto, Boston, Winnipeg, Pittsburgh and New Jersey, the Islanders return home accomplishing what they had intended to do.

Stay afloat.

One of the most refreshing commentary about this team is that they are in every game. Yes, it is still early but they have not looked over matched and they had opportunities to win every game they've played in this year.

Islanders Lose Second In A Row But Still Earn A Point Against Winnipeg

During the second intermission, MSG's Peter Ruttgaizer asked Islanders assistant coach Doug Weight what he wanted in the third period and Weight responded, "two goals."

The request was granted, and then some!
