June 2, 2016

Since I started blogging about the New York Islanders back in 2008, I always write at least one article a year stressing the importance of the backup goaltender for this organization.

The New York Islanders and many fans from Long Island introduced Brooklyn to hockey playoffs last night with Thomas Hickey scoring the game winning goal in overtime to win the game 4-3 and the Isles lead the series 2-1.
