The New York Islanders are in the midst of a little break here thanks to COVID protocols in Canada but we still have a ton of stuff to get into. In episode 229, we will start by talking about the schedule changes and what games will be made up, and when.

Next, the power play. It's actually been rather good, why is that? We'll get into the biggest reasons for the Islanders success on the man advantage. Also, we have to continue to talk about the development of Noah Dobson.

In Dobson's last 10 games, he has seen significantly more ice time and he has 10 points over that span. Is this finally the version of Noah Dobson that the Islanders were hoping for when he was drafted in 2018?

Here's what you can expect from episode 229 of the Eyes on Isles podcast:


Schedule Changes

What changes have been made for the Islanders schedule and what can we expect in January and February going forward?

Power Play

The power play has been good ever since Anders Lee returned. Coincidence? I don't think so. We'll discuss why it's looked so much better over the last few weeks.

Noah Dobson

Noah Dobson's game has gone to a completely different level. We'll get into what looks different from him and how it impacts the team going forward.

Down on the Farm

Mitch will update us on the prospects from all around the world and highlights from any of 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.
