Bridgeport, Conn -- It was a tough friday night for the Islanders in their final preseason game of the season.

The Boston Bruins pummeled the Isles 6-1 in front of a sellout crowd of 8,600, -- a large number of which were Bruins fans -- at Webster Bank Arena. Kyle Okposo scored the lone goal for the Islanders on the power play after Brock Nelson left the game after being hit from behind by Kevan Miller in the second period.

The Islanders fielded a roster primarily made up of AHL players and a handful of NHL regulars, which played into how the game turned out, but it was still as ugly a preseason loss as they come. Inside the locker room after the game there was a very somber atmosphere. You could tell no one was taking the loss lightly.
