There needs to be a third answer of "I'm too superstitious to answer (just count this as a yes though)". Cause if I answer yes the islanders will lose.

I'm counting on that Rainbow that magically appeared to center the barn! ...That, and that every Islander steps up!

YES YES YES

Yes. Jaro Halak is 4-0 vs. Washington in elimination games. The Islanders have been the better team over the first six games.

I'm as diehard as they come but not having the last change will be critical.  The Caps will be able to get their guns (Ovie) out against our two rookie D.  I would expect Cappy to split them up so we aren't so vulnerable.  It's going to be a tall task to steal one down there.

If the team from Game 6 shows up, then yes. If the team from Game 5 shows up, then probably not. Carlson for them is a defensive liability out there that needs to be taken advantage of

I Love Game 7's, but not when it's my team. Oh, the STRESS!

Caps have a terrible record at home in Game 7's two come to mind right off the top of my head, against the rangers and against the pens, banking on history repeating itself in a negative way for the caps.

Isles have been great and magical all year.  No reason to think they won't come out and play their style of hockey.  A banged up D won't matter if our 4 lines are skating.  Let's see Clutterbuck and Martin hit everything that moves and Tavares to stay in beast mode.  The rest will take care of itself.  The longer the game goes tied or close the more pressure on the Caps.  Home ice is meaningless in Game 7's.  We know we have more talented forwards top to bottom.  Everyone needs to contribute and we need to limit mistakes.  Someone will be the hero.  You have to beLIeve baby.  Go Isles!

Why does tonight's game start at 7:30? Doesn't the NHL know that it will end too late for whiny LIers and past their bed times?


I'll be watching in a bar with the real fans.  If NYI loses it's HELLO BROOKLYN!

@tpjm Dude your agenda is more ridiculous than the negative glass is always empty guys.  Wow - have a few extra drinks tonight in the bar and then reevaluate yourself.

@tpjm  you are NOT  a real fan if you think Brooklyn is the best option for a Long Island team

I thought they were going to lose game 6. I'm sticking with that for game 7. I saved the clothes from game 6, eating the same food, watching it from the same spot on the couch, so hopefully I'm wrong again.

LGI!!!!

YES YES YES

As Matt Martin said, game 6 doesn't matter unless you win game 7.

I have never seen fans that don't complain about the refs no matter which team we are talking about. As long as they "miss" or "don't see" equally ,it's part of the game and we have to live with it. If they put the whistles away and it goes both ways, cheap shots are easy just do it.

@shlo I live in an area with a lot of Habs fans and they whine about the refs more than any other fan base. Not even close

@Richard Gauthier @shlo If anybody should complain, it should be Ottawa fans, they really got  screwed yesterday with 2 goals disallowed, quick whistle on the first and questionable judgement call at the end of the game.

The thing is that the ref knew he blew the call on the first goal.

Richard Gauthier

@shlo @Richard Gauthier Yeah they should be and all I've heard from the media up here is how Ottawa was basically destroyed in that series lol. It easily could have been 5 games to 1 for Ottawa. That first disallowed goal was on the play right after a really quick whistle where Price actually made the save. I'm surprised Dave Cameron didn't talk to the ref about it between plays.


I would love to see an Isles Habs series so I could see Martin and Clutterbuck destroy stupid Plekanec and Gallagher. i used to hate hearing it from the Leafs fans all the time but now I just feel bad for them. But all Habs whiners are just ridiculous.
