The Eyes on Isles Podcast returns for episode number 86 as Matt and Mitch will discuss all things New York Islanders on and off the ice.

“Playoffs baby! F’n right.” as my good friend, Robin Lehner would say. The New York Islanders are one day away from their playoff series against the Pittsburgh Penguins and we have to give you guys a series preview.

This past week, the Islanders wrapped up the season. The biggest thing we were waiting for was who would they be playing in the first round of the playoffs. We are all well aware of Pittsburgh Penguins, but we will break down every facet of their game on tonight’s show.

Here’s what you can look for in episode 86:

Topics

Playoff Roster Breakdowns

We’ll look at the forwards, defense, and goalies of both teams and say who has the advantage at each position.

Dal Colle vs Kuhnhackl

Who should play on the second line Michael Dal Colle or Tom Kuhnhackl? We’ll make the case for who we think deserves to play in that spot and what the lineups will look like.

5 Most Important Islanders

We’ll discuss who we think the most important five people on the roster are for this series. There’s sure to be some disagreements in this segment between Mitch and me.

Series Predictions

We will wrap up by getting into how many games the series will go and who comes out victorious. In addition we’ll do our favorite gimmicks like who will have the most goals in the series and other fun stuff.
