2015 Eastern Conference Predictions

April 15, 2015

It’s that time of year once again where everyone gets to prepare and write up their playoff predictions. Last year I went perfect in the Eastern Conference and bombed in the West (Thanks San Jose!). Yes, that meant I did have the Rangers going to the Cup, but not this year. I already have my picks set in, but I’m just doing the first round of each Conference. Each winner…


Blog: Islanders Will Turn Things Around

April 8, 2015

Many or all of the Islanders fans out there are pissed off with last night’s performance. If this is still the case, then allow me to be the calming influence. Even after last night’s game, I’m still confident that the Isles can pull through this. If you’re one of those fans that has season tickets and see no hope in sight, I would truly be indebted to you if you…


Blog: Time For Isles To Prepare For The Playoffs

March 16, 2015

The New York Islanders, having tied a few teams with the most games played this season at 71, get a much needed break this week when they face off against the Chicago Black Hawks and the New Jersey Devils this week, giving the team some much needed rest and practice time. For fans, it’s all about the standings. Can the Islanders still win the Metropolitan Division? Some are still asking…


Talk From the 300 Section – Tough Loss

March 11, 2015

CLICK BELOW TO HEAR GARY’S PODCAST… No matter how you slice it – it was a difficult 3rd period to watch.  The Isles were the completely dominant team in the first 20, but somehow forgot the last 40. The last regular season game at NVMC of Islanders-Rangers will not go down as a classic in the history books.  It will be a complete disappointment. This is my talk about the…


Talk from the 300 Section – JT – WOW, and Let’s Get Ready for Tonight

March 10, 2015

CLICK BELOW TO HEAR GARY’S PODCAST… That was a highlight reel moment….. How can you top that?  Maybe tonight we will see some more magic from the number 1 scorer in the league? It should be a blast tonight as the Rangers come for the final time in the regular season this evening.  It brings out the craziest fans and the passion is the best.  Can’t wait for tonight, can’t…


Blog: Eastern Conference Stronger Than Ever

February 3, 2015

I’ve been going on twitter or Facebook or some other Islanders chat room and there’s always the select few who believe that if the Islanders lose tonight against the Florida Panthers that the sky is falling. Granted a three game losing streak is not good and yes, the NHL trade deadline is coming, but how far are the Islanders? Should changes be made? How are the rest of the teams…


Blog: “You Can’t Beat Us!”

View image | gettyimages.com During the last week and a half, the New York Islanders basically took control of the Metropolitan Division by beating the Devils, Blue Jackets, Rangers and Penguins by a combined score of 17-7. Indeed, the Islanders came alive in the third period against the Pittsburgh Penguins and went on a scoring spree to beat the Pens 6-3. What gave me chills watching this game on TV…

Why New York Needs Hockey & A Rivalry

January 12, 2015

View image | gettyimages.com The New York Islanders take on the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden this Tuesday January 13th and it couldn’t come at a better time. The Islanders are currently having a regular season not seen in decades, while the Rangers, despite a slow start to the season, are proving that last year’s Stanley Cup run was not a fluke and are currently one of the…


It Is Way Too Early To Drink The Champagne Right Now, But BE HAPPY!

October 15, 2014

About 12 hours after the final hooter blew at MSG, the Isles fans left the arena as happy as a pig in slop! As well they should be.  What the fan base got out of this team, after an OK first and second period, was an onslaught. JT said it perfectly in the second intermission; they were making mistakes and getting a little too cute. They had to get back…
