The New York Islanders won in their first game without Kyle Okposo but his presence was sorely missed in the team’s latest two contests.
The Florida Panthers will be facing a team that has been winning games with a similar formula to what they’ve been using in Sunrise this season.
“I thought some guys worked hard and played a good game,” Islanders coach Jack Capuano said. “Again, with our club we need all 20 guys going, and we didn’t have all 20.”
The New York Islanders nearly paid for relaxing too early against the Florida Panthers.
