The 5 Hole: Monster Victory at MSG

Around this time of the year, you’ll hear the phrase “biggest game of the season”, well tonight for the New York Islanders, that phrase was multiplied by a thousand. Having not played since Saturday, the Isles got some help from other teams as they headed in to their pivotal showdown with the New York Rangers. 1-3-1 in their last five, tonight in every absolute way was a must win for the Isles.

The Isles have won the last two against the Blueshirts, and six of the last seven contests between the two teams. Joshua Ho-Sang would get his first taste of this 45-year old rivalry, and he couldn’t have picked a bigger one.

Always a ratcheted up affair, the Isles found a way in the third and won 3-2. Thomas Greiss was sensational and Andrew Ladd hit the 20-goal mark. New York’s season lives to see another day as they get ready for a back to back with Pittsburgh and Boston. The best from social media can be seen here:
