The 5 Hole: Monster Win at MSG

If you can make a case for the biggest game of the season, you can never go wrong when it’s the Islanders and Rangers. Even this early in the year, the stakes are always high when these two rivals take the ice. The fact that both teams are off to slow start — the Isles, 2-3-1, and the Blueshirts, 1-5-1 — a victory for either team could get them going in the right direction. Mathew Barzal and Ryan Pulock also got their first taste of the hatred between the two clubs.

Always an intense affair, the Islanders blew a two-goal lead, but won in the shootout 4-3. They’ve now won eight out of their last nine meeting with the Rangers, and are 5-1-0 in their last six at The Garden. Below is the social media recap from tonight’s win:
