By losing to Sidney Crosby and the Penguins 4-0 Friday night, the Islanders losing streak has grown to five games.
The Islanders have conceded no fewer than four goals in any of the five games, leaking 21 goals in total. Their normally steller offense has largely failed to pick up the pieces, scoring more than two goals in just one of the five losses.
In a word, the players are frustrated with themselves. Anders Lee gave voice to that after Friday night's loss.
"We get out of it by sticking together and trusting one another," Lee said, via Cory Wright of the Islanders official site. "We have to regroup and figure it out. We've been saying this the last four nights, but it's frustrating. We have to figure it out now."
Lee remains third in the NHL in goals with 24, trailing only Nikita Kucherov and Alex Ovechkin, who each have 26.
The Islanders will look to return to winning ways when they are next in action tomorrow at 1 p.m. against the Devils.
