Islanders 2, Panthers 4 [Game #50 Stats Recap]

New, comments
Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Islanders took on the Carolina Pittsburgh Florida Panthers tonight in a game which projected as a win.  Florida is not as good of a team offensively or defensively when compared to the Islanders, they don't have great possession and their power play is weak which should have played to the Islanders weak penalty killing.  Florida is also on the road and just played last night and they were coming in against an Islanders team that was freshly rested.  Teams that come in tired against a freshly rested team have about a 23 percent greater chance of losing compared to when they are fresh.  This is on top of the seven percent increase that teams have when they are on the road, so everything was stacked in the Islanders favor.  This of course meant that the Islanders lost to the panthers by a score of two to three.

A lot of people were yelling at Josh Bailey during the game, but he really didn't have that bad of a game.  The same cannot be said for the European line of Frans Nielsen, Nikolay Kulemin and Mikhail Grabovski who all had ouch games.  There were plenty of people in the negatives here and it would be hard to pin the loss on any one individual from a possession standpoint.  The Islanders barely came out in front, but again they are a better team than the Panthers, are fully rested and are playing in their home building, so really this was a huge down game for them. (Also, the scripting in the game was a bit broken and the numbers were in fact wrong - apparently in fixing them I broke the color scheme - d'oh!)

EDIT:  Fixed - Thanks to NDRE for finding the glitch.

Obviously the top line performed rather well and we'll likely see that combination out on the ice for the next game.  The third line didn't do as poorly from a conventional standpoint compared to their advanced stats.  The fourth line had the opposite luck, being out for two goals against at even strength.  John Tavares' improvement on faceoffs has been remarkable and it showed in this game.  There aren't really any other huge positives to take from this.  The penalty kill numbers continue to get worse and if things continue this way then heads will have to roll.  They already entered this game as the league worst in penalty killing and that number only got worse and did so against the 27th worst power play in the league.
