Saturday's Dump & Chase: The Islanders, You Guys!

New, comments

So yeah, the Sharks won in overtime. Big deal. The Islanders overcame two Sidney Crosby goals and an early 3-1 deficit to shock the Penguins, and really, the world with a 4-3 victory. I mean really, how many people expected the Islanders to even win one game? And now I'm starting to worry, having publicly stated that I'd eat my hat if Pittsburgh lost in Round 1. So now I have to root for the Penguins. Great.
