City Islanders are once again forced to settle for a nil-nil draw

How do you analyze a scoreless draw? Let me count the ways. The most obvious route is to highlight that the defense has gotten a clean sheet, which is fair. It could also be used to extend an unbeaten streak, such as the three match streak the City Islanders currently enjoy.
