The big picture has not really changed since our last blog entry a week ago.

That is a good news/bad news thing for the 2009-10 New York Islanders.

The good news is a lot of younger players up front are still carrying the club playing fourteen of seventeen on the road leading the league in back to back games that defeated a red hot, high-scoring Atlanta team. In others ways it is frustrating because you are going to get ups and downs that come with development which we saw in Tampa on Saturday.

The bad news is the record unfortunately goes hand and hand with this which means a team at five hundred which in the NHL is a non-starter for playoffs but keeps them in contention for now.

Statistically the team that was in the middle of the pack scoring about a week ago when we did the last update is now having some games in hand made up by other clubs and went from around fourteen-sixteen to near the bottom five which is in line with the struggling powerplay.

However the expectations are higher, that's always something you strive for and the club continues to play very competitive hockey.

Let's look at the big picture.

What can be said of a game the New York Islanders never would have won a year ago, much less against the defending champions?

It's not 2008-09 anymore. Malkin, Crosby looked like they were in a war after this game and they came out on the losing end.

Which brings us to an actual blog entry about today's win and the 2009-10 New York Islanders.
