The Islanders beat the Jets again while fellow wild card chasers keep pace. As we’ve done our schedule watching and sketched out how the Islanders are either doomed or in great (wild card) position over the past two months, I must say two games in a week against the Winnipeg Jets is not where I had them taking four regulation points.
Goals from Horvat, Romanov, and Nelson, plus an empty-netter from Pelech, provided the offense in a 23-save shutout for Varlamov. This was a pretty nice bounceback win for the New York Islanders after a wildly disappointing loss to Los Angeles.
Despite a foe on a back-to-back, and a backup goalie, you know the drill. A riveting two-game win streak came to an end for the New York Islanders last night, as they couldn’t mount even 20 shots at home against a team playing its backup goalie on the back half of a back-to-back.

One of the “fun” things about the Islanders’ current injury load is seeing things like Matt Martin, first liner. That’s just kind of where we are, with key centers Mat Barzal and J-G Pageau joining Josh Bailey and Oliver Wahlstrom (remember him?) on the injured list.
