With the 2019-20 season on pause for a full month now, let’s go over some feel-good moments for the New York Islanders this season.

The 2019-20 season had its ups and downs for the New York Islanders. The last time we saw the Islanders they weren’t exactly playing the best hockey.

Over their last ten games, before the season was put on hold, the Isles were 2-4-4. Their only two wins came against the Detroit Red Wings and the San Jose Sharks. Two of the worst teams in the NHL this past season.

That streak, coupled with the rest of the Metropolitan Division playing better hockey than the Isles, pushed them outside of the playoff picture for the first time in months.

So yeah, the way things were before the season was put on hold wasn’t, as you’d say “great”.

In this time unprecedented time with negative story after negative story I thought it would be a good idea to go over some of the feel-good moments from the 2019-20 season.

Why not a positive spin to get us through another week of quarantine. What are some of the best feel-good stories this season?
