NY Islanders: early season dominance fading away

All good things come to an end. It’s a little dramatic but I’m purposely exaggerating what’s been going on with the Islanders since the second period of last Saturday’s home matinee against the St. Louis Blues. By the end of the first period, the Islanders were up 3-0 and it appeared their November dominance was not going to be halted in December. I mean, the Blues are one...
