Quote of the Day

“I think everybody knows what kind of performance we put on the ice. We have to turn the page quickly. It was a terrible game on our part, from start to finish, but it’s a quick turnaround. We have a game in Ottawa tomorrow, and then a big week against Montreal and Buffalo. We can’t drop our heads here. We just have to play better tomorrow.”

Islanders captain Mark Streit,
following Monday's loss against Philadelphia
