Isles Links: Savoring that shutout a little longer

Did you have a good MLK Day? Mine was fantastic. Here's a bit of coverage from the afternoon's demolition, which Eric noted featured the most Islanders shots on goal (46) in a shutout win "since totaling 48 while blanking the Devils 7-0 on February 22, 1987." He also notes the last five Islanders shutouts have been by five different goalies (DP, Roloson, Biron, MacDonald, Danis). Elsewhere:

Usually we’re really good in our own end and tonight they could make plays as they wished." ... NJ.com with a bunch, including Zach Parise questioning the shot counters, Lemaire calling it their worst effort of the season (always a treat when you can force that), and Yann Danis on playing in a familiar venue against familiar friends but an unfamiliar jersey [also: facial hair update].

After the jump, two videos: Gordon presser and Matt Moulson, asked "Did you think you were capable of this much success?" answering: "Well I'm not gonna say no to that; I think I'm in trouble if I say that."
