Sports Network: Recaps Florida's 3-2 win against New York on Thursday.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Readers Digest recap here tonight.

Another game where win or lose a second guess has to be made on Scott Gordon as to why pull a goaltender on a four game winning streak with that save percentage?

This is how MacDonald kept playing earlier and no knock on him for his play tonight but the rule is you play the hot goalie.

Overall the game was lost in the first period, Florida for most of the game had the better of play but set the tone earlier, forcing turnovers and creating chances. MacDonald robbed David Booth early but too much pressure on him and not nearly enough on Vokoun.

Nice efforts by the Islanders to hang in and get back in the game on Bailey-Hunter goals but that goal in-between by Zednik was a great effort and the difference.

Bailey needs to use that shot a lot more.

Vokoun needed more shots and pressure against him, especially with powerplay chances Islanders were creating.

Despite the loss one of the better Islander efforts in Florida that last couple of years which is not saying much.

We'll see what the story is with Nate Thompson.
