What else is there to say?

The Islanders took on the Philadelphia Flyers last night and lost 3-1. There really isn't too much to say about the game rather than it was a long one. It wasn't due to there being a large number of penalties, or other delays of game, it just seemed to drag on like a bad movie. From the opening faceoff thru pretty much the entire game, it looked as if most Islander players were mentally somewhere else.

Unfortunately the lack of emotion and intensity has become a little too common. This uninspired play has led speculation that Butch Goring's will be fired after the close of the season. This is unfortunate because Butch seems to truly love this team, and would like nothing else but to have them do well, but it seems that some sort of change will be necessary.

Notes:


Jason Blake:

He was a one man show last night, in that he was practically the only player who actually showed desire to win out there.

Eddie Layton:

Nice to hear the real organ music again.

The Refs:

I have an open question to ANYONE that can explain how can a player be called for tripping, and the other player who was supposedly tripped, be called for a dive? I've seen thing frequently recently by a number of referees, how is it possible? If you have an explanation, please email us at

Players of the Game:


This is harder than it seems, how do you come up with 4 players to nominate when only one player seemed to have an impact.

* Jason Blake: 1 goal, 0 assists, -1 overall. He played with emotion.
* John Vanbiesbrouck: 19 saves on 22 shots
* Aris Brimanis: +1 for the game
* Owen and Christine Kenny: Won the kissing contest during the second intermission
