Will leave up interviews with Garth Snow and Scott Gordon and post the game highlights in the recap.
NHL.com: Recaps New York's 4-0 win against the Devils Saturday.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
Yann Danis says take that Larry Brooks on his first Islander shutout.
Good team effort, great game by Danis who had to stop a lot of odd-man chances in front of him and was the difference. Islander team defense gave up those chances or Devils made plays but virtually no rebounds which was key.
That line with Parise made their plays, Islanders or Danis made one better play on this day.
Faceoff were all Devils in this one. Islanders did the job in the skating department and got in the trenches against a bigger team and took hits to make plays.
Bergenheim not only had his goal but that great early chance that should have been a goal and hit the holes very well. Streit another dominating game.
Islanders did not generate a lot of second chances themselves but Sim converted off a turnover, Okposo had a very nice powerplay goal to ice the game. Did not like when Guerin shot for his five on three goal or Witt out there.
Solid win, too much Danis but considering the Devils record to shut them out even with them struggling recently is a quality effort.
McAmmond won some faceoffs and if nothing else can skate and is a bigger body for a small lineup.
Sorry for the smaller entry, will add more here tomorrow.
Good win against a first place team.
