4-1 loss to the Capitals, after scoring the first goal 36 seconds into the game. And Tom "someone should park a Suburban on my face" Wilson had 2 G and 1 A. Plus the Rangers, Devils and Blue Jackets all won. Not a good night for the Isles.

Saw that Trotz picked up his ring pregame. Jesus, if the Caps win the Cup again this year, I may die.

Supposedly playing time in Bridgeport was the stumbling block after the Isles sent him down. They had expected him to make the Isles out of camp, but both agreed he needed AHL time. Then when he was sent down everyone kind of realized Bridgeport had way too many vets for him to play regularly (max of 5 veterans dressed/game in the AHL). So that's why he left. I wish him luck.


Isles lose in a SO to the Bruins, after having a Barzal goal disallowed in OT for goalie interference. Still not sure I agree with the call, but I'm obviously biased, and not being sure means it was probably the right call. But if you make it to a SO, all 4 guys can't try to shoot at the same fucking spot after each prior guy was stopped. Try playing creative hockey, not dying on the Scouting Report sword 4 times in a row.

In Columbus on Saturday.

Isles are 10-2 in the Metro after beating the Blue Jackets 3-2 at the old Coliseum. First game back there since April 2015. Lots of rumors they'll play there full time for the 2 seasons prior to Belmont being built. The players all talked about how much they love playing there, how it's really the Isles home, Trotz said it's their identity, etc. The Barclays people must be pissed about the interviews given. :lol: But the Barclays folks own the Coliseum now, so they'll get their money one way or the other.

Isles came back from a 2-0 deficit to win in regulation for the first time this year. Not an encouraging stat. Still, 3rd in the Metro is far better than anyone predicted for them.

2 periods without scoring vs the high scoring Jets. Then Lee put in a rebound to give the Isles a 1-0 lead, and there was much rejoicing. A minute later Barzal held a Jet's stick right in front of the ref in the OFFENSIVE zone, and the Jets scored on the PP. And again 22 seconds later. Then added an empty netter with 2.1 seconds left. So much for playing well.
Reporters asked Trotz if he was happy that his team hung in the game vs a good team like the Jets. He replied "we don't get paid to hang in games. We get paid to win." I like it.
Penguins on Thursday.

How has Pulock looked? He has the ice time and shot totals that make me think he has been unlucky.

Yes my curiosity is fantasy team based put him and Chabot as my late pick D steals and would like to go 2 for 2 and been holding on to Pulock as like I said based on time and shots he should produce much more.

He looks good overall, although I think Trotz is trying to teach him to not be just an offensive D-man. Under Weight and Capuano, they just tried to feed him for 1-timers, and there didn't seem to be a whole lot of improvement in the D-zone. Under Trotz they've been working with him a ton in the D-zone. Although they did use him in the Ovi-spot for the PP a few games ago. I haven't seen it again, and the PP has been stir fried dog shit lately. Maybe they should try it again. If you check out Lighthousehockey.com, they actually had a good article the other day about Pulock being an overall D-man now, instead of just a shooter. Lots of stats and details that I'm totally glossing over.


Isles looked like they didn't know tonight's game vs the Penguins counted. Trotz could be easily seen saying "wake up. Let's go." to them during a TV timeout.

Nice comeback win vs Detroit. Down 2-0 after 1, Cizikas, Pulock (PP) and Martin score. Josh Bailey fought Larkin and Boychuk fought Abdelkader, while Ross Johnston made a really nice pass to Cizikas for his goal. Isles writer Art Staple tweeted something like "Bailey fights and Johnston makes great play. Just like we predicted." :lol: Isles fans are all saying Boychuk vs Abdelkader goes back to last year, when Abdelkader slew footed Boychuk. Boychuk looked pissed at him, that's for sure. Earlier Kronwall nailed Lee while Lee was trying to control a bouncing puck. Shoulder to the face, with Lee's head down. Lee left the game for concussion protocol but returned with some cuts on his face. Scary looking but he seemed fine.
PP goal was the Isles first in NINE games, breaking an 0-21 slump. Holy shit it's been bad. But hopefully now they remember how to do it.

Penguins again, for the 4th/final time already for the year. NHL scheduling is really weird.

Lehner is healthy again, so Chris Gibson was sent back to Bridgeport. Instead of recalling Steven Gionta, they've called up Josh Ho-Sang. He's got 2G and 20A in 26 games in Bridgeport. It would be nice if the Isles had anyone who could FINISH on the roster. All these pass happy kids are good, but they really need pucks on net.

Shame Ho-Sang won't get to wear #66 vs the Penguins thanks to the Lou Rules. I liked hearing their fans shit pickles over it.
