Another night, another Islanders win. This one though came in convincing fashion. After sneaking out of Columbus with a 3-2 win in overtime last night, the Isles ran ruff shot over the New Jersey Devils earlier tonight shutting them out 4-0. Thomas Greiss got his first shutout of the season and the Isles improved to 8-0-2 in their last ten, and it was their sixth straight win against a division opponent. It’s good times in Islander Country, and here’s the best from social media during tonight’s triumph.
This guy is ruthless.

A lot funnier because everyone hates both of these guys.

Third. Plus he also had the seventh best nickname on the team.
I second Howie and Butch. I miss Lubo too. Good guy. Always smiling. #isles

I would misspell that hashtag as well knowing this was his first goal in eight games.

The only blemish on what was a stellar night all around.
Absolutely no urgency in that 4 minute PP. This is what's wrong. Get up 2 goals and then sit around. #isles

Uppercut From Bernie. I’ll be here all week.

Martin deflection in front, #Isles up 3-0. Maybe this game won't go to overtime?

LET ME REPEAT? I LOVE THIS GOAL-TENDING TANDEM! I’LL SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS!
While #isles haven't played absolute best past 10 games & in winning streak…goaltending has been a real outstanding confidence builder.

Now that’s sacrificing yourself for the betterment of the team. Might want to ice that though.
that's one way to block a shot, Johnny pic.twitter.com/K5GtrRGaMg

I didn’t realize their were two celebration nights at Barclays tonight.
It's not every day Zidlicky gets first star in an #Isles game.
