The New York Islanders have been a team in turmoil all season with their goalie play. The Islanders turned to Rick DiPietro on Tuesday night, and New York still lost 3-1 to the Ottawa Senators. While the team isn’t going to make another trade for a goalie, especially after already trading for Tim Thomas, they can’t depend on John Tavares to carry the team all the way. Tavares has been doing so much in 2013 for the Islanders but unless the New York goalies start stopping shots, things aren’t going to get much better for the Islanders.
