reSports Recap – Jets vs Islanders Jan 27
FINAL SCORE Jets 5 Islanders 4 (OT)
Jets dominated most of this game. Just didn’t finish and let the Islanders stick around for too long. Great tenacity to stay focused and come back in he third. 50 minute game out of the Jets. Burmistrov’s best game, handling the puck, shoveling garbage, gritty game. Hainsey’s best game too. Antropov took to the body well this game (all season so far actually). Complete team effort. Jets showing great balance. If this team keeps forechecking this way, they will be a very tough team for anyone to handle. Dominating defenseman combined with physical forward play, great formula. Again though, team needs to finish more to take that next step towards being an elite team.
- Jets seem to like being down to start games so far
- Nice forecheck leads to Ponikorovski’s first goal
- Burmistrov put on his work pants today – Jets dominating a team they are better than, still tied 1-1 after first.
- Jets playing a punishing game. Islanders physically cannot keep up
- Nabokov looks like the only good Islander
- Combine that physical play with Kane’s speed, it’s deadly. Forecheck the strength of Jets game.
- Ladd needs to stop the blind passing
- Islanders starting to play (6:22 left in 2nd)
- Montoya has not been challenged since first period goal
- Danger of this kind of game, just takes one mistake to turn it around. Enstrom has two mistakes that have lead to goals.
- Now Islanders get a solid tip and are making Jets pay for not finishing earlier chances
- Jets flat through first half of third. Islanders made great adjustments to avoid Jets physical play
- Just trust Big Buff’s shot. PP goal, huge to make it a game again
- And Burmistrov’s stellar play, finally gets rewarded with a goal!
- Unbelievable come back, great to see this team not quit
-Great defensive play by Hainsey to start the goal breakout the other way
- Kane capitalizes from crashing the net as Jokinen takes a great shot.
