New York Islanders Daily: Shane Prince’s Hot Start
In two games after coming off of IR Shane Prince has two goals for the New York Islanders, and he was a big reason for the win last night.
The New York Islanders have struggled to get their forwards going early on in this young season. Key free agent acquisitions Andrew Ladd and Jason Chimera are still goalless. Surprisingly the offense has come from an unlikely forward the last couple of nights.
Both of these goals came in very similar fashion. A weird bounce behind the net with the goalie out to play it led to both the goal in Pittsburgh and last nights.

Sometimes it just comes down to being in the right place at the right time, which is exactly what happened to Prince the last two games.
To expect Prince to be one of your big time scorers seems like a stretch, but if he can provide some resemblance of secondary scoring you’d have to be happy with that.
That said the Islanders still need Ladd and Chimera to break out of this funk. They were brought in here for goals and neither of the two are providing any.
