Fisher's Favs 5/6/13

Welcome to this edition of Fisher's Favs. I know that I am speaking for many Islander fans when I say that we are in a frustrating series, that will be nearly impossible to win if the league has anything to say about it. I try to give the refs a break, knowing that they have a difficult job. However the OT penalty on Brian Strait drawn by no other than Sidney Crosby, was one of the most blatantly blown calls that I have seen.
