The Islanders are down to their final days before the start of their Qualifying Round series with the Florida Panthers. They started off on the right foot with a 2-1 win over the New York Rangers last night.
One of the interesting notes from the game was the decision to dress eight defensemen. Andy Greene and Noah Dobson did their best to make Barry Trotz’s decision for Saturday harder than it already is going to be.
“With being off for four and a half months and getting everyone healthy (on defense) it’s a battle,” Greene said. “We had a good couple weeks of camp here and it’s good to get the legs under us tonight. It’s out of my hands at this point and we’ll go from there.”
Along with Greene and Dobson’s performance, Anthony Beauvillier and Semyon Varlamov looked pretty good last night as well.
Just two more days before the Islanders and Florida Panthers finally square off.
