The 5 Hole: Still Rocking Like a Hurricane for Now

Three games to go, and somehow the New York Islanders are still playing games with at least some magnitude. That can change tonight, but the team seems to have found a new confidence level over the last week. Standing in there way tonight was a familiar thorn in their side: The Carolina Hurricanes.

These two teams have played some wacky games this year, and there’s no reason to believe that tonight’s game wasn’t going to have the same feel. Jaro Halak was in net again as Doug Weight continues to ride the hot hand in what was another must win game.

The Isles again were victorious 3-0. Jaroslav Halak pitched the shutout, while Brock Nelson and Scott Mayfield scored twice in the first five minutes and controlled the play from there. The Isles had to wait till after the game to find out if they will be still fighting for there playoff lives Saturday in New Jersey. The top hits from social media are below:
