The mood is dreadful and perilous in Islanders Country as Long Island’s best continue a Western road trip of doom.
They took care of the easy one Monday night, serving up the all-but-assured victory for the Oilers after their coaching change but creating suspense by not blowing it until well into the third.
Tonight, rational folk would expect a much easier time for their opponents, as the Vancouver Canucks (11-3-1) have become Canada’s Team under former fired-coach-turned-broadcaster-turned-savior Rick Tocchet.
(Speaking of Tocchet, U.S. viewers note that tonight’s game is on TNT, not MSG.)
No surprises here:
