The New York Islanders are playoff-bound and we know who they will be taking on in the first round of the playoffs this year. It’ll be Islanders vs Penguins, just like in 2019 when the two teams met.
This year, the Isles struggled against the Pens in eight matchups. They went 2-4-2 against them this year with a shootout loss and an OT loss in the mix. This year, New York has been phenomenal with keeping pucks out of the back of the net.
But against Pittsburgh, it’s been an issue. They allowed three goals or more in six of the eight games. They’ll have to clean that up if they want a chance against them. Here’s what to expect from episode 195:
Penguins Series Preview
We will give the Penguins and Islanders series a thorough run-through. Mitch and I will discuss the regular season matchups, what we think will happen in this series, and what to expect lineups to look like.
Down on the Farm
Also, we have some new info on prospects to share in down on the farm including who will be around for the playoffs with the big club.
Mitch is going to quiz me on someone who played 195 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.
