New York Islanders: Eyes on Isles Podcast Ep 76 Preview
The Eyes on Isles Podcast returns for episode number 76 as Matt and Mitch will discuss all things New York Islanders on and off the ice.
It’s been a tough week without New York Islanders hockey. There’s been rumors, debates on numerous topics, and overall anxiousness awaiting the Islanders return on Friday. First up was the All-Star game this past week.
Mathew Barzal made his first All-Star appearance and was extremely productive in the tournament. We also heard this past week that Anders Lee isn’t worried about contract negotiations, which is a positive sign for Islanders fans.
Robin Lehner has had an amazing year for the Islanders but is he Vezina material? That’s a question worth looking into in the second half of the season. Speaking of the second half, we’ll also get into some players who will have better luck in the next part of the season.
Here’s what to expect from episode 76:
Barzal at the All-Star Game
The new face of the New York Islanders got his first taste of the All-Star game. He was able to put up a whopping six points in the tournament.
Lee wants to re-sign
Anders Lee says he wants to stay here. Should we believe him? And what will it cost to keep Anders on Long Island as the Captain?
How Lehner can win the Vezina
Robin Lehner leads the league in save percentage and goals against average. Will he be in the conversation for the Vezina by years end? We’ll try to make the case for him.
Four players whose luck will change
We’ll list the players who need a better second half and who has a shot to turn it around. We’ll look at everyone’s favorite stat, PDO.
In the social segment, we’ll answer questions and talk about the biggest stuff from Isles Twitter this past week.
