What's the Worst Position for the Isles?

Apparently, the answer is up by three goals. Once again, the Isles blew a three-goal lead, this time losing to the Penguins 5-3 behind an Evgeni Malkin hat trick.

The story was the same as in past games - the Isles looked good for the first 40 minutes, and then it came apart in the third period. As we all know, this team is very much a work in progress, but it doesn't make yet another blown lead feel any better.

On the plus side, rookie center Josh Bailey had two assists, and it would seem that he will not be returning to Windsor on Saturday, instead earning his roster spot. Trent Hunter also looked solid in the first two periods and has played very well during the first quarter of the season.

No word yet on Kyle's injury, but we presume he should be back within the next couple of games.

A Happy Thanksgiving to all of our readers!
