My comments - this team is not playing like a "dregs of the NHL"
team. The style Gordon is playing is entertaining. It forced Ottawa
into mistakes. The Isles got two of three goals by just jamming the
net. Tambellini went to the net and seems like he is really he gets it now. Jackman looks so much better than
Fritz - but I still want FRITZ on this team. Would sort out a guy
like Chris Neil ( did he play after that fight he won vs Jackman ?)

Joey MacDonald played well. Ottawa brought it to the Isles in the
first. He was the difference.

Except for a bad penalty or two or three - no one on our team was a
dog tonight.

Good win.
