Welcome to the NYIslesScene!

A blog by a long time New York Islanders fan who stays true to the fellas wearing orange, white and blue…but thinks the Islanders organization has some shaping up to do.

I'm Proud to be an Islander After Last Night's Game

Islanders 3 : Penguins 2

What a great comeback by the Isles! After spending most of the game down 2-0, they score 3 straight in the third period and come from behind to beat the Penguins, 3-2, marking the third game straight that Pitt has lost a game after leading 2-0, and providing a great hustle by the Isles after losing their starting goaltender! Although we struggled a bit in the beginning of the second period, for the rest of the game we maintained a good pace and worked hard, even down two goals. The one down point was seeing Rick DiPietro go down with that eye injury, from which I hope he recovers completely. The three days we have in between last night and the Tuesday night game against the Rangers (which will be a big one) should help him recover.

The Isles organization got this right, doing the ceremony for Al Arbour after the game. It was tasteful and wonderful, and after an amazing game, was a great nightcap! Seeing the team out there congratulating Arbour on his 1500th game, and 740th win, made me love this team and admire Ted Nolan even more for making it all happen. Nolan is a complete class act, and he deserves much of the credit. It made me so proud of the Orange and Blue- nothing pretentious or showy about it. Just good hockey and great memories. Let's go, Isles!
