The 5 Hole: Still Breathing

The New York Islanders began the post-John Tavares slate to end the season this afternoon when they headed up to Buffalo for a matinee with the Buffalo Sabres. Coming off the nice win Friday, the Isles were looking to make it two in a row and gain some momentum heading into the final week of what has been a disappointing season. This game was also a chance to keep seeing the excellnet chemistry that is forming between rookies Anthony Beauvillier and Joshua Ho-Sang.

Jaroslav Halak made his second straight start and Bridgeport call-up, 27-year old Connor Jones made his National Hockey League debut on a line with Stephen Gionta and Cal Clutterbuck.

The Islanders were victorious 4-2. Anders Lee scored the game winner and cracked the 30-goal plateau for the first time in his career, and Josh Ho-Sang scored a highlight reel goal. The Isles are still alive with four games to go, anything can happen, but they must win Tuesday in Nashville. The best from social media can be found below:
