Is there any team hotter right now than the Islanders? This team is still performing at a high level even without a few of their key players. Their captain Anders Lee was placed on the LTIR with a lower-body injury. He is expected to be out the rest of the regular season. Another player that is out is J.G Pageau. He was placed on the NHL COVID list ahead of today’s game. Hopefully, it is just a false positive, but we will not know until tomorrow. Even without these two key players, the Islanders win their ninth straight game with a 3-2 SO win over the Devils.
This was a gutsy win from this team. The Devils are a pesky team that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Scott Wedgewood is playing great in net for the Devils and he gave his team a great chance to win tonight. P.K Subban appeared to end this game in overtime, but the play was offside. The game proceeded to a shootout. That is when young stud Oliver Wahlstrom gets the shootout winner and the Islanders win.

This kid has an amazing shot. That was an absolute rip. This team looks unbeatable. The Islanders got their goals from Kieffer Bellows (3) and Brock Nelson (12). The Devils got their goals from Janne Kuokkanen (5) and Yegor Sharangovich (5). Will the Islanders make the final this year? Can they compete with teams like Tampa Bay and Carolina? We will see.
