Last year sucked, there's no other way to say it. It sucked. The New York Islanders 2021-22 season was just one negative twist after another it seemed.
And we're all well-rehearsed on the negatives. We've all been relentlessly talking about them since October. A 13-game road trip, a bungled response to a COVID outbreak in the team, injuries to key players, and a lack of production from other key players. All of it conspired together and saw the Isles miss the playoffs for the first time in four years.

And by "top 5" I'm looking at some of the prettier, or well-worked goals from this past season. At least in my opinion. Something to give us a nice boost of dopamine by remembering some of the nicer goals scored.
I don't typically add honorable mentions, but I wanted to pass on a few a goals that didn't make my top five, but maybe make yours:
