The New York Islanders fell to the New Jersey Devils in a Martin Luther King Jr day matinee at the Nassau Coliseum. While poor officiating did not help the Islanders case, a slow start and poor play did them in.
At least once every season, the Penguins travel to Long Island and play a game that makes you bang your head off a wall. It never fails. Nothing good happens on Long Island. Only good thing that's ever happened there was 66 scoring his 500th goal. Other than that, it sucks. A few years ago, the Pens lost a huge unbeaten streak there. And last night, Crosby's 25-game point-scoring streak was buried in the dark and gloomy arena.
