Islanders News: Can't count this team out yet

It was over 92 minutes of hockey before Anders Lee poked Kevin Shattenkirk ’s whiff off the boards to himself to start a two-on-one that Jordan Eberle finished off.

[ Newsday ] Eric Hornick has all the goodies from last night’s game, the fifth-longest in Islanders history.

And there were some laughs from Johnny Boychuk and Semyon Varlamov —who played splendidly to keep the Isles alive last night—about the goalie’s “Pete Rose slide” into the celebratory bunch.

It wasn’t a pretty game, but it was a display of the Isles’ adjusted strategy to defeat the Lightning : just get the puck out of your zone.

[ The Athletic ] Boychuk, a “father figure” to many of the younger guys, as Trotz described him, surely provided a lift to his team.

[ TSN | Florida also announced they hired former GMs Rick Dudley and Paul Fenton as advisors and brought some former players, Gregory Campbell and Blake Geoffrion , into the front office.
