The 5 Hole: Leaking Oil

With the NHL trade deadline ending in under 24 hours, their was still business to take care off on the ice for the Islanders. After winning their first three games of this seven game road trip, they were in Edmonton for a date with the Oilers. This match-up was the second and final meeting between the two teams this season. The Islanders pounded the Oilers 8-1 back on Super Bowl Sunday thanks to a Kyle Okposo hat trick. Tonight was not reminiscent of that performance from just a few weeks ago, as the Isles fell to the Oilers 3-1. The loss leaves the record on the road trip at 3-1-0 as the team will look to rebound on Tuesday in Vancouver. Social media hits can be found below from tonight’s frustrating defeat.

The Waiting Is Over!

Ok, now I feel old.

Always the comedian.

I was just asking myself the same thing.


Both seem highly likely.

How many times have I heard this? Too many.


Oh do we hope so.

What’s number four?

Very nice! How much?

Silky mitts.

Super fun.

Spot on.

Cue the music.

Man do I wish I was around back then.

The New York Islanders?

Me most of the night.

Just to Sweet.


Running out of words to describe how much I love them.

“Strange Magic”.

Making his CASE, get it?

Buzzer sounds.

Without a doubt.

Everybody take cover!

Scratches head, but marvels at the fact.

What world is this? Seriously?


I’m sure you were.

Both points are obvious.

Hangs head.

Or how about every year.

Lost for words.
