New, comments

The goaltending failed, the lead-holding failed, and some notable players had poor performances.

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

In case anybody was unaware, the Islanders lost to the Rangers by a score of six to five in the most frustrating game all season. The Islanders had a total of three two-goal leads. They blew a total of two two-goal leads.

The Islanders already came in at a league worst .862 save percentage when up by two or more goals. The next worst team, the Buffalo Sabres, is at .887. During the course of the their two goal leads to their rivals, they allowed five shots on goal. Three goals in five shots on goal over a coarse of 7.3 minutes when up by two. This brings the team to a .855 save percentage at when leading by two or more goals. That's a difference from 30th to 29th of .032.  The average team comes in at .912. That's a difference of -.057 from league average.

That's enough about the two goal leads.  Here are the stats.

In case anybody wanted to know what falling apart in the third period looked like, that's what falling apart in the third period looks like. Did they shell it?  Probably.  Better goaltending would have been nice to have in this situation, but that wasn't up to the challenge either.

Brian Strait is awful despite his +9 rating that Howie Rose ranted about and should be dealt immediately if the coaching staff is going to continue to play him over any other talent on the roster.

There were some positives. Nick Leddy and Johnny Boychuk were great. The line of Mikhail Grabovski, Frans Nielsen and Ryan Strome were great. Ultimately though, that third period collapse is just not acceptable. It was their 11th worst possession period of the season.

Strome and Nielsen were great both from a possession standpoint and a scoring standpoint. Hamonic was less great from a possession standpoint, but still had two points and was stuck playing with Strait. Ultimately the defensive lapses by the team outweigh all of the positives in this loss.  he first line of Josh Bailey, John Tavares and Anders Lee had perhaps their worst game together from both a possession standpoint and a from a conventional stats standpoint.

Obviously the results this game weren't as nice as the ones from the win against Columbus.Thomas Hickey and Nikolay Kulemin were the worst tandem of the day with nine attempts against compared to zero for.  Kulemin didn't have the strongest game as it was and he was in the negatives with quite a few people.

Another one of the more notable things on the table is that Strait was out with Tavares for a total of 20 events and only three of them went the Islanders way.  Tavares, the guy widely regarded as the best player on the Islanders, could only manage a 15 percent corsi for percentage with Strait on the ice.  Hey, at least it looks like this might have pushed Strait out though.
