Jack Capuano was pretty upset with the New York Islanders after they allowed four goals in the third period and lost to the Blue Jackets 6-2.
The New York Islanders actually showed some resiliency through the first two periods. Especially when they went down 2-1 and John Tavares scored to tie the game up. But, once the third period rolled around it got ugly.
This is true. You’re certainly not going to win many hockey games when you continuously turn the puck over. Nick Leddy‘s turnover was by far the worst of the game.
“Just a silly mistake by me,” Leddy said. “It started with me, it’s definitely a bad pass and it just started to snowball after that.”
Leddy’s correct unfortunately. His poor mistake is what ended up spiraling the game out of control. In the third it looked like the team just stopped playing defense. We’ll have to pump the breaks on the Islanders being back.
