In Battle of New York, The Islanders Come Out On Top


The Islanders faced their big brothers the New York Rangers and defeated them 4-2. John Tavares scored his 7th goal of the season. Also, the asshole who didn’t sign with the Bruins Jimmy Vesey scored his 9th goal of the season. Way to betray your hometown Jimmy we will never forget. Jaroslav Halak was really the star of the game as he stopped 36 shots. In  his last 10 matchups versus Henrik Lundqvist, Halak got his 9th win versus the star goalie. The Rangers had plenty of opportunities to score as they went o for 6 on the powerplay including a 6 on 3 late in the third period. The win propelled New York Islanders to a 4-0-1 record in the last five games. They face the St.Louis Blues on Thursday night to conclude a three-game homestand.
