The New York Islanders are now twenty-one games into their season and have amassed twenty-three points with their 10-8-3 record. Last night’s loss was a bitter pill as the Montreal Canadiens completed their season sweep of the Islanders with a 4-2 victory in Montreal.

A strong feeling among Islanders supporters is that the team has yet to put a complete game together yet. They’ve had their fair share of defensive lapses, Thomas Hickey is now injured and on too many nights the top line doesn’t look like the Islanders best line on the ice. But as this team approaches its tenth game there’s plenty to feel good about if you’re an Islanders...

The Islanders avoided the “trap” of the typical trap game, taking care of business in Columbus. They blanked the Blue Jackets by a score of 4-0, extending their winning streak to four games.
