Plus/Minus: Islanders 1 vs. Lightning 4

Bad, bad, bad. The Islanders played the first two periods as flat as they played half of their opening two games against Florida (when they lost) and Minnesota (when they squeaked out a win). Once again, the only major pressure was exhibited by the top line with John Tavares, but overall the Isles had no inspiration offensively and no answer for the Lightning team defensive approach once the Bolts gained the lead.

Game Sum | Event Sum | H2H | Shifts | Corsi | Zone Starts | Recaps: NHL | Isles | SBN

Michael Grabner scored the only Isles goal, short-side on a mixed-line shift after the Lightning had built a 3-0 third-period lead. Jack Capuano started mixing up lines to get something, anything going and also to fill in with Trevor Gillies in the lineup for a whopping five shifts and 3:14. Kyle Okposo had another too quiet game.

This is our post-game plus/minus reaction thread. I know which side of the ledger weighs heavy tonight.
