The 5 Hole: Prevailing in the Peg

It’s been said many times before, but it needs to be said again, the Islanders own the Western Conference this year. On this season-defining trip the boys have gone 4-1-0 so far as they headed to Winnipeg to finish up the Canadian part of there trip before coming back for a huge game Sunday against the Rangers. Before tonight, the Islanders and Jets met early in October with the Isles prevailing 4-2. Boy that seems like ages ago, and now the Islanders are fighting tooth and nail to secure a playoff birth. And with every point having meaning, the team again battled to win 3-2 in overtime. They found another way to win making Sunday the biggest game of the season. Here’s the best hits from social media during tonight’s infuriating victory.

It’s getting to be a little too much.

Throws hands up in the air.

Off Da Face!

Snatching it from the jaws of life!

You can’t make everyone happy.
