New York Islanders (Yes! Yes! Yes!)

ClutterbuckGreat playoff run by the NY Islanders (Orange and Blue). It’s tough being far from Bridgeport / Nassau (and soon Belmont Park).

IF you watch a documentary on the history of the New York Islanders you realize very quickly it’s the story of so many (so many) Americans. It’s a real rags to riches (four consecutive Stanley Cups) to rags (John Spano) to riches (Lou Lamoriello/Barry Trotz/UBS Arena) story.

I’ve just highlighted some of the highs and lows but should add a note about three other watershed events in this history of the franchise- the introduction of the Downeaster Alexa / Gordon Fisherman logo, leaving the barn for Brooklyn, and John Tavares backstabbing the Orange and Blue.
