The 5 Hole: Missed Opportunity in MTL

There wasn’t much that needed to be said as the Islanders faced off with the Habs in Montreal earlier this evening. 19 games remaining for the year, and every single point the team gets is crucial. Coming off their frustrating defeat on Saturday in New Jersey, securing anything but two points North of the border could lead to the dagger that wouldn’t only severely damage the Isles playoff hopes, but end them abruptly.

New York and Montreal were playing the first of a home-and-home with the two teams set to meet in Brooklyn on Friday. The Isles took the first game in Montreal in a wild 5-4 OT win a month earlier including a 52-save performance from the now-injured Thomas Greiss.

The Islanders needed a win in any possible fashion, and they fell to the Canadiens 3-1. New York has now lost four in a row. Social media recap is below:
