In fairness they had to get past actually better teams, so it was also just a matter of teams getting hot and cold at the right time.

But yes, Tampa’s biggest challengers came in the first two rounds.

Yeah the NHL playoffs can sometimes be dominated by one hot player (goalie), and it looked like Price was on his way to that for a spell.
Plus a couple of their opponents definitely underperformed compared to their regular season records.
But the whole just playing within your division regular season allowed them to get in the playoffs in the first place.
If they had to play their normal schedule last season they wouldn't have sniffed the playoffs.

RIP Mike Bossy. The greatest Islander of All Time. I didn't wear too many jerseys when I was a kid, but I wore his whenever I played hockey.

mike bossy had a similar kind of impact on the NHL as steph curry on the NBA. he invented and perfected countless new ways to score and he led an all-time dynasty. the gretzky/lemieux generation owes an uncountable debt to mike bossy. RIP.

Exactly! The Islanders Dynasty in the 80's was remarkable and they almost won 5 in a row, but sometimes that dynasty is not given the props it deserves. Even The Great One's Oilers never won 4 Cups in a row.

The Islanders had other superstars from that era, but on Long Island, 22 was the number most fans wore.

RIP.

I’ve thought about this for a while. We’ve been due for it, sadly (all these legends eventually passing away).

Passed on tickets yesterday because kids had too many sportsball games during the day... which proceeded to all be rained out. Go figure.

Out of town next week otherwise I'd probably go to a game or two. If they advance further on I'm sure I'll get to a game.

You going?

That was my first playoff game. Brutal choice. You guys know obviously I love all my sports except for the one sport we don’t talk about anymore, but hockey is and always has been my #1. It’s hella hard knowing we haven’t won a playoff series in rounding 30 years.

I might go on Monday, if I build up a strong stomach.

I turn 30 in June. I was about 9 or 10 when I started watching every hockey game I could. I waited about 10 years to see a playoff berth. I’ve waited my entire conscious life to see them win a round. Here we are at last.
