didn't get regular shifts in the final two periods. I'm not necessarily anti-fighting or anti-Boulton, I'm pro smart lineup decisions. It makes no sense to play Boulton in a lineup that also features Matt Martin and Carkner, two guys that fight when they need to and Cal Clutterbuck, a guy who doesn't fight a lot but throws the body like it's his job (oh wait, it is his job). And that's all forgetting about the fact that Boulton is taking a lineup spot away from Brock Nelson, who apparently needs to play so much that he was shuttled to Bridgeport over the weekend to get in a game.So anyway, Boulton went and fought and that inspired the Islanders or whatever -- because I guess the first line can't score unless someone fights -- so Kyle Okposo fired a slapper from the blueline past Steve Mason four minutes later. For Okposo, it's his fourth of the season that matches his total from all of last year. But towards the end of the period Lecavalier would score his second of the game, as this time both Carkner and Donovan got traffic coned when Lecavalier and linemate Michael Raffl criss-crossed in the offensive zone.Poulin looked alright in the second period as he seemed to settle down and stopped all 12 shots that he faced. But the concerning part was that for a team that was down 3-1 on its home ice to the Flyers, who the standings said were awful, managed only five shots on goal in the period. Here's one better; the Islanders only managed 10 shot attempts in the middle frame.But credit where it's due, the Islanders did manage this beautiful shorthanded goal in the second period:The Islanders came out of the gate with good pressure in the third but they couldn't manage a goal. Lecavalier completed the hat trick about halfway through on another fire drill for the Isles. Thomas Hickey got the puck stolen by two Flyers trying to hold it in at the blueline and then was shoved away by a streaking Lecavalier. After the puck bounced around and bodies flew everywhere, a diving effort from Lecavalier put the puck in the net. There was one final chance, a power play with four minutes to go. There were a lot of chances on that man advantage too, including Kyle Okposo ringing one off the post that didn't get the kind redirect. But the comeback wasn't to be and the Flyers iced it with an empty netter later on to make it 5-2. Next up for the Islanders is a home date against the Rangers on Tuesday night.
