The 5 Hole: Bitten Late

After picking up there first win of the season Sunday night, the Islanders returned to action earlier this evening against the defending Western Conference Champion San Jose Sharks. This contest was a good early season test for the Isles as well as the second of a five game home stand that ends next Wednesday. The team wanted to keep there strong play from the last two games going, and it wasn’t meant to be as they fell 3-2 on a goal late in the third period. With a record of 1-3-0, the team needs to find answers and they have till Friday to find them. Social media recap can below:

I still don’t know what’s more unbelievable… The fact that I’m single or the fact that Bailey has 4 OT winners #Isles — Jon Mass (@Jon_Mass) October 18, 2016

Michael Haley! Will never forget “Fight Night” against the Penguins. #Isles

Only guy that struggled harder than the #isles defense pair on that goal was Butchie trying to pronounce Tommy Wingels. — Kevin Cosgrove (@kcos194) October 18, 2016

I love the “Follow your Dreams” pep talk by @91Butch #Isles #Sharks

How many of these bad angle, bounce off a leg goals are the hockey gods going to dish out to us this year? #isles — Spencer (@Spence0913) October 19, 2016

Why is it always a flukey goal #isles

Important 10 minutes of hockey coming! #Isles have to make the #Sharks work after playing last night. #Get2Points

Fourth line doesn’t miss Matt Martin. Have we mentioned that already? #isles

Kulemin might be better off carrying a pool cue in the O zone. #Isles #Islanders #IslesTwitter #NoTouch — jay dugan (@jaydugan) October 19, 2016

Knew it. Late period goals are back. #Isles

— Bryan (@RealBryGuy) October 19, 2016

Had a feeling that silly icing might cost them.. #isles — Sean Cuthbert (@seanyhockey) October 19, 2016

Reliance on the 4th line cost us tonight. When the 4th line gets 2nd line minutes you can’t expect us to score a lot. #isles

— Jeremy weinstein (@upperdeckie) October 19, 2016

Regardless of previous 59 minutes , if #Isles don’t score here they deserved to lose. #IslesTwitter — jay dugan (@jaydugan) October 19, 2016

Need some stats reminders from #Isles beat folks, but they have to lead the NHL over the past two seasons in goals allowed in last 2-3 min.
