Islanders look to rebound from brutal trip
The Islanders’ road trip from hell is finally over.
Now, the Brooklyn/Long Island-based franchise must find a way to “right the ship” before its too late, according to team captain Anders Lee.
“We’ve got our backs against the wall a little bit here and it’s been a tough stretch and a brutal road trip,” Lee said shortly after the Isles completed their fruitless four-game Western swing with a 3-1 loss in Colorado Wednesday night.
The Isles (33-20-6, 72 points) left Brooklyn on Feb. 11 following a 5-3 victory over Philadelphia at Downtown’s Barclays Center.
