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.

Islanders 2014-15 Season Mantra

Try not. Do...or do not.

Skate On Through

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.

There and Here

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.
