“Alexa: Hit the damn music!”
Coming off a two loss weekend in Pittsburgh, the Islanders 8-4 victory over the Washington Capitals was a statement win against the team they are chasing in the standings.
The win propels the Isles to 50 points and a tie at the top of the East Division with Washington.
Hear me out– this win feels different than others so far this season. Barzal scored a hat trick, each of the goals being highlight reels I must add, and Jordan Eberle scoring two goals. Both players had been struggling since Anders Lee was sidelined with a season-ending injury and it’s a great sign to see these two guys start to get hot. I also hate to admit it, but “Uncle” Leo Komarov had a great game as well. Credits due where credits due.
To add to the excitement of tonight’s win we had some bad blood spill over in the last minute of the game…We got to see Matty Martin and Chara chuck the ‘knucks
These two teams meet again Tuesday night; it could get interesting!
HIT THE DAMN MUSIC!
