Isles snooze 2-1 vs. Devs

The Dirty Dozen

Just for fun, try to figure out what each phrase is.  Change the word loss or losses with the intended word.  As far as the Islanders game goes, not much goodness to write.  They still can’t score.  They had some breakdowns that lead to goals.  Florida had some nice shots to burn Roloson.  Maybe it
