The New York Islanders have been playing much better hockey lately! They are 6-1-1 in their last eight games and are back to .500 at 13-13-6. Yes, obviously there is more work to be done but they have gotten themselves in gear a little bit here.

On episode 231 of the Eyes on Isles podcast, we're going to start out by discussing what has changed for the Islanders. Why are they playing better and what can they do to make sure that continues.

Also, we're going to be talking about something called Wahlstrom rules. What exactly are Wahlstrom rules? Well, it seems he has a different set then some of the rest of the team so Mitch and I will get into what those rules are and why they exist.

Here's what you can catch on episode 231 of the Eyes on Isles podcast:


The Turnaround

The Islanders have looked a lot better and they are finally starting to get healthier. We'll talk about the change and what we can expect going forward.

Wahlstrom Rules

Rule number one, he's never allowed to play with Mathew Barzal! Okay, we're joking a little bit but we can get into why it will be different for him sometimes compared to other players on the team.

Down on the Farm

Mitch will update us on all things prospects in this segment.


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.
