Islanders Podcast Preview: Losing Streak Over & Oliver Wahlstrom Scoring
By Matt O'Leary
Finally! Last night, the New York Islanders losing streak came to a close with a 5-3 win over the Ottawa Senators. We'll start out episode 225 by going through the tail end of the losing streak and what changed when they finally got their first win.
Also, we want to get into Oliver Wahlstrom. He's been scoring a lot more goals recently and in the postgame Barry Trotz says that he wants Oliver to develop into a top-line wing but he's not quite there yet.
Mitch will also share his findings from his interviews during Down on the Farm and we'll get into what's trending on Isles Twitter. Here's what you can expect from tonight's Eyes on Isles Podcast:
The Streak is Over
Finally, the Islanders losing streak is over and now it's turned into a four game point streak. What's next for this team and how do they stand now in the race?
Oliver Wahlstrom had a couple of power play goals this week and also was able to put on a nifty backhand move. We'll talk about his scoring and the Barry Trotz quote.
Down on the Farm
Mitch will share his findings from the prospect world and share any highlights 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.
