But when we fans thought the team would carry over some of their play into last night's game against the Boston Bruins, we were wrong.
Last night, the Islanders looked more than flat in a 6-0 defeat at the hands of the Bruins.
The Islanders' "everything will get better" mentality is starting to fail them. The Isles find themselves dead last in the Eastern Conference with a 5-9-3 record.
It's still early, but some drastic changes must be made on the island of the Islanders want to keep any hope of making the playoffs alive.
