Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - Islanders general manager Lou Lamoriello insisted that his old New Jersey Devils teams play defense and clog the neutral zone. Nothing has changed with the Islanders, and the total shots after 40 minutes were 15-10 Islanders. It’s a horrible game to watch and will make fans...
