Islanders website: Has the recap of tonight's 4-1 loss to the Boston Bruins with Ted Nolan's comments that the Isles did not bear down in any fact of the game tonight and lost as a team.
AP: Ted Nolan said guys were thinking about the break before the game started and that it's hard enough to win when you're not, never mind when you are. Marc Savard talked about how badly Boston wanted this game. Rick DiPietro talked about a bad third goal he allowed and how at times this looks like a good team while at others is looks like a bad team.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
Not much to write on this game now, maybe more tomorrow.
One team came out and played hungry like they wanted two points after losing big, the other played like giving up over forty five shots and winning meant it's was not a big game tonight. Boston was the better club top to bottom against a club the Isles outworked for years head to head. Isles did not show up until the second and by then Thomas made his saves to keep his team ahead while Boston extended the lead.
Islanders power play again did not do much.
Your going to have bad nights in an eighty two game season, that's acceptable. When your own coach feels his club was thinking more about a break then the game that's unacceptable.
Meyer made a bad read, Martinek and DiPietro almost got hurt.
Would have been nice if this team gave DiPietro gave him some goal support tonight, he got better as the game went on.
Blake Comeau looked like the player who was working hardest among the forwards.
