The 5 Hole: Broadway Beatdown

The Isles haven’t played since last Sunday afternoon, but the mandatory five-day break was a good time for everyone to reset. The players, the coaches, and the fans included. But, today it was time to get back to business as the unofficial start to the second half of the season began in midtown Manhattan. And what a more fitting way to start their playoff push that a heated afternoon matinee against the New York Rangers.

Michael Dal Colle was set to make his NHL debut after being drafted fifth overall in 2014, while the blue and orange were looking to win on the road for the first time in eight games, a 0-6-1 span.

In game number 44 of the season, the Isles put a hurting on the Rangers 7-2. Jordan Eberle, Mathew Barzal and Anthony Beauvillier combined for 13 points while Jaro Halak had himself one the best games of the season. That’s now two in a row for the Isles with four games ahead this week. The best hits from social media can be found here:
