Welcome to the NYIslesScene!
A blog by a long time New York Islanders fan who stays true to the fellas wearing orange, white and blue…but thinks the Islanders organization has some shaping up to do.

Startling the person next to me in reaction to the game...priceless. It appears to be a test of core strength for these evenly matched teams. What a tug-of-war we are in for. I'm rooting for the Bruins, that town could use a celebration.

A little late on posting but YaY! Would be great to see more teams supporting animal rescue. The Greyhounds on the concourse are one upside to seeing a game in Philly. Take your dog to a hockey game would be pawsome!

The Islanders lost game 5 to the Penguins for one reason, they were not well rested. It was apparent within 5 minutes after the puck dropped, as I put my head in my hands and to myself sighed, Oh noooooo. When fatigued, everything is just off...positioning, aim and so on. It's a sucky feeling. How much each Isle was in his body is a guess from this vantage point. Collectively they had a ghost like appearance on the ice.
LET'S GO ISLANDERS!!!

Beautiful day in Philly. Isles play the Flyers tonight. Great opportunity for Isles to prep for playoffs, condensing mental endurance into one game. Flyers are the kind of opponent to do this with. If Isles do regress like they did in the 2nd period against the Jets, they will fall back on what they know with the Flyers which usually is to submit. Isles were able to recover during Jets game because they snapped back into playing their game. Isles have challenges doing the same with the Flyers who are good at puffing up their feathers.
But as always I have faith in my team.
Game mantra? Skate on through to the other side. Singing it in your head Doors-like optional.
The one thing I'd like the Islanders to know... most Flyers fans are going tonight to see THEM play, not their own team. Feed off their energy and stay the hell away from fights. Healthy teams win playoff rounds.
LET'S GO ISLANDERS!!

Isles beat Tampa Bay out on the Island while I'm staying in sorta enemy territory at the Affinia. Sorta meaning not the Flyers.
Good to see Matt Martin evolving on the ice. The team too.
I've learned it is impossible to sleep with Ridiculousness marathon on.
