The New York Islanders have three games under their belt so far in the 2021-2022 season. The first two weren’t pretty, but there were some (keyword being some) things we can take away from them.
Obviously, both Mitch and I were much happier with the performance in Chicago. We’ll get into that game too and why it was important not to panic. One guy in particular that we want to hit on is Oliver Wahlstrom.
Last night, Wahlstrom scored two goals on eight (8!) shots in the game. He’s been unreal, as well as the rest of that third line for New York. Mitch Anderson will also fill us in on any prospect news we need throughout the week as well.
Here’s what you can expect from episode 218:
The overreaction online was downright insane. We’ll get into why the reactions weren’t just and what we’ve seen so far this season from the Isles.
Oliver Wahlstrom is good! We’ll get into his three goals on the season so far and why the Islanders should keep him right where he is in the lineup.
Down on the Farm
Mitch will update us on prospects from all around the globe and share any nuggets from his interviews.
On the quiz, Mitch will pick a random player in Islanders history and I have to try to guess who that player is based on five clues. It’s usually a blast.
In the social segment, we’ll answer questions and talk about the biggest stuff from Isles Twitter this past week.
If you missed last week’s show you can catch up on it right here. Also, be sure to follow along with us on social media @EyesonIslesFS on Twitter and on Facebook as well.
