The 5 Hole: Trounced in T.O.

Not much needs to be added about how important tonight’s tilt between the New York Islanders and the Toronto Maple Leafs was. The Isles weren’t only looking to bounce back from a frustrating defeat 24 hours earlier against the lowly Panthers, but to pick up two large points to put them back in a playoff spot.
Tonight’s game was the first of three games between the two clubs. And as always, it was a homecoming for the Ontario natives on the Islanders. — John Tavares, Josh Bailey, Cal Clutterbuck, Casey Cizikas and Adam Pelech. Thomas Greiss also got the start for the first time since his 50-plus save performance back on January 15th.
Andrew Ladd returned to the lineup as the Isles were no match for the Leafs, as they fell 5-0. Social media recap can be found below:
