The 5 Hole: Lightning In a Bottle


The Islanders weren’t just horrible Saturday, they were embarrassed. Earlier this evening was not only another chance to right the ship, but to move ever so closer to that elusive playoff spot. In their way, was a team that also embarrassed them less than two weeks ago, in the Tampa Bay Lightning. Well, the Islanders decided to repay the favor with 5-2 throttling of the Bolts. The win was what the team needed in such a huge way. Their magic number sits at two as they head to D.C. for their last meeting with the Washington Capitals, a team they have yet to defeat this year. With a win tomorrow they can clinch a playoff position. We can all dream about hopefully seeing that “X” next to the Isles name 24 hours from now, until then check out the best hits from social media from tonight’s victory.
