Hawks-Islanders tonight

Recommended Posts

The Islanders are a hard team to figure out, so I'm not sure how this one will play out.  The Islanders played a tight game vs. the Hawks in October, although the Hawks won the game.  John Tavares is the Islander to watch out for in this game.


For the Hawks, Corey Crawford is expected to return.  We'll see if Crow shows any rust after sitting out with an injury for a month.

  The Hawks have been adequate in net with Raanta who pitched a shutout in his last start to try to make the Hawks remember him with Crawford back. Crawford has the most skilled team in the league in front of him while he shakes off the rust that has been forced to play tighter with him out. He should be fine shaking off the rust

Hawks fall to Islanders in OT, 3-2


Kyle Okposo was a name I heard all evening long in this game as he and John Tavares were key players in this game.  The Islanders kind of looked like those early 1980s teams that won 4 Cups, and not at all like a team that is statistically 29th in the league in goals-allowed.


Those kinds of statistics can be tossed out the window sometimes ...


The Hawks played well, but the Islanders played much better.
