The 5 Hole: Running through the Devils

It was do or die for the New York Islanders once again when they took the ice in New Jersey tonight for their final meeting with the Devils. The Isles needed to win to keep their faint playoff hopes alive and hope that the Maple Leafs tripped up in the process.

Jaroslav Halak again got the nod from Doug Weight in another must-win affair, and Nikolay Kulemin made his way back in to the lineup replacing Connor Jones, who was solid since being called up for last Sunday’s game up in Buffalo.

On to the game where the Islanders started slow but finished strong in a 4-2 victory. Jaroslav Halak had his shutout streak broken, but was rock solid in net saving the his team in the first period, and Anders Lee potted his 32nd and 33rd goal of the season.
