His save percentage I saw was was .001 better than the Colorado goalie we just played. After the 1000th or so shot, you'll definitely notice.

They were blanked by the terrific Predators in "preseason".

Poor phrasing. He was including the losing streak at the end of the regular season and then the round robin.

Islanders score on shot #3. This one is over. No coming back from that.

Despite having worse stats than both our goaltenders? Is that because he has a worse team in front of him?

kidding.

kind of.

The Islanders don't look all that great. I'm beginning to regret becoming a fan of them last night.

I got excited because Kucherov left the ice there limping. But then he came back shortly with all limbs present and accounted for.

I was hoping to get Vancouver in the first round, we got the Flames, we pounded them.
I was hoping for Arizona to do the job, they failed, we got the freakin' Avs, we slammed them. (Kind of)
I was hoping to face Vancouver again, we earned Vegas, we crushed them (kind of again)
I'm hoping the Isles upset Tampa, we will face the Lightning, we will roll over them.

Any other outcome will not be acceptable.

The Vezina puts wins first because GMs vote on it.

I'm guessing then splitting time between 2 goalies makes it near inpossible.

Here's the likely schedule if Tampa wins tomorrow. The back-to-back could be a problem.

I’m sure Bishop will be dazzling in the second half of the back-to-back.

It's a perfect shirt to wear to a beer league game.

Yeah I mean I know they want to end the bubble early, but it’s one extra day. I think some breathing time between all games would help build excitement.
