What is the deal with the New York Islanders?
- Dec. 31st, 2010 – Islanders 4 Detroit 3 (OT)
- Jan. 12th, 2010 – Islanders 6 Detroit 0
- March 27th, 2009 – Islanders 2 Detroit 0
- Jan. 30th, 2007 – Islanders 3 Detroit 4 (OT)
- Dec. 4th, 2005 – Islanders 2 Detroit 1
Since the lockout, Detroit has a 1-3-1 record against one of the most defunct franchises in hockey. Taking 3 out of a possible 10 points. So I ask again: what is the deal?
Not a happy first post for 2011. But at least we’re still tied for the lead league in points (with a game in hand). I had a bad feeling about last night’s game since the day I saw it posted on the schedule. The Islanders continue to be a thorn in our side for one night a year.
Oh and if that was a penalty on Zetterberg in OT, then I’m a Chinese monkey.
