So here we are, May 4th, the day right after the Islanders eventual fall to the Carolina Hurricanes. Rather than focus on the bad, which is quite obvious, I'm going to focus on the good that came out of this. First, this year was truly amazing in the sense it brought hope to this franchise … Continue reading And so it ends….

As we all know, the internet, much like the NHL Playoffs, can get out of hand from time to time. And so much like the NHL Playoffs, I'm here to start the Internet handshake line.

While the Penguins were busy flopping on defense, Eberle was showing us what it means to be in playoff mode. Fair, we did allow Crosby to get a point … Continue reading #YesYesYes that’s a sweep baby!
This started off as and continues to be the biggest week thus far of the #islesmeetups Connecticut branch!

What a weekend in Philly. I imagined the event and how it would go about 100 times in my head leading up to it, but I never thought it would be THAT perfect. From the early morning and late afternoon takeovers of The Field House bar to the generosity of the Isles fans contributing their … Continue reading Broad Street Blitz – A Tip of the Helmet
