Islanders Podcast Preview: 4th Line Bounces Back & Eberle’s Start
By Matt O'Leary
After a five-game losing streak, the New York Islanders bounced back with a couple of wins against the Penguins and Rangers since the last time we spoke. During their latest two-game run, we’ve seen a resurgence from line four.
All of Matt Martin, Casey Cizikas, and Cal Clutterbuck have goals and they are playing their impact hockey. The fourth line isn’t the only line that is cooking right now, in fact, Jordan Eberle has had a rare hot start.
Usually, Eberle is a second-half player but with five goals to his name already we’ll discuss the impact of Eberle’s hot goal-scoring streak. Mitch will also have his weekly prospect update for us. Here’s what you can expect from episode 182 this week.
The 4th line
With three of the Islanders last six goals coming from the fourth line is it safe to say they’re #back? We’ll discuss their rejuvenated play over the past week.
Jordan Eberle’s goal scoring
With five goals in the first 10 games, that’s Eberle’s hottest start to a season as an Islander. We’ll discuss his slow starts in years gone by and what has changed for him.
Down on the Farm
Mitch will have his Down on the Farm update for us, with interview reactions and thoughts on Josh Ho-Sang’s Orebro exit.
Mitch is going to quiz me on someone who played 182 games in an Islanders sweater. This guessing game rarely goes well.
In the social segment, we’ll answer questions and talk about the biggest stuff from Isles Twitter this past week.
