New York Islanders Daily: Ryan Strome’s Wake-Up Call
The New York Islanders had a scary win last night. But, Ryan Strome returned to the lineup and had a lot to play for.
The Ryan Strome and Jack Capuano relationship is an odd one. It can seem like at times the New York Islanders head coach uses Strome as the scapegoat but, this time Strome’s response might be different.
He took this benching as a wake-up call, something the Isles need as a team.
“I think our whole team needs a wake-up call,” Strome said Wednesday morning. “I think sitting pretty low in the standings is tough, so obviously you want to play your best, want to contribute. I’m responsible to go out there every night and perform. I think all you can do is look towards [the game] and putting your best foot forward.”

I thought Strome played decent last night. He was back in his natural position of center where he belongs so that was a plus.
I’m of the firm belief that he’s got to play in order to get better. It doesn’t do Strome any good having him sit. The goal is to get him in gear, not to shatter his confidence. Strome’s a very talented player, hopefully he’s figured it out.

Here are the highlights from the Isles wild win last night. (Eyes on Isles)
From a three goal lead, to a tie game to a two goal win. It was honestly a roller coaster ride watching that game. If you missed it or want to relive it check out the highlights and commentary.
The Islanders are still bad (Eyes On Isles)
After going .500 on their West Coast road trip plus the Calgary game we look at if anything changes for the Isles. Not yet.
Islanders valued at $385 million by Forbes (Newsday)
It’s up 18 percent from last year’s estimate but $100 million less than the valuation in the sale agreement that made Jon Ledecky and Scott Malkin co-majority owners effective last summer.
