The Islanders host the Predators in a game crucial to their playoff chances.
Doug Weight explains how going 0 for 6 on the power play isn't helpful, especially in a game with a playoff atmosphere against the Boston Bruins.
“It was a tight-checking, playoff-type game. It was muck it up type of game and somebody was going to win it with a goal. They got a break and scored in the third.”
