Streaking Sens hammer Isles

Feb 20, 2012, 4:14 PM EDT


The Islanders dropped a heart-breaker this afternoon, losing 6-0 to the Ottawa Senators in front of 15,818 delighted ticket-buyers at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

This one was over early. Erik Karlsson opened the scoring at 1:08 of the first period and Jason Spezza made it 2-0 just 27 seconds later. Out went Isles goalie Kevin Poulin, in went Al Montoya, boo went the fans.

While New York remains six points back of eighth-place Toronto in the Eastern Conference, the Sens gave themselves some breathing, moving six points ahead of the Leafs.

Ottawa has now won its last three games by a combined score of 16-2, a surprising stretch of domination after losing seven of eight.

PS — The Isles need to burn those third jerseys.

    This game was certainly a downer and illustrates how much Isles need Nabby. Don’t care for the idea of third jerseys in general, but the Isles’ version is not really that bad.

    “PS — The Isles need to burn those third jerseys”

    Dig a hole, throw them in, urinate on them, light ‘em up, and bury them.

    So, um, how many goalies do they have now?

    Nabby won’t win many games the Isles don’t score in, but I agree the third jersey isn’t that bad( it’s better then the rags smoke stained color jersey that’s for sure).
