Every week we go over the New York Islanders games to find five highlights. This week Josh Bailey’s acrobatics against the Washington Capitals takes the top spot.
In our top five weekly New York Islanders highlights we’ll bring to light five Islanders individual highlights from the past week. I know that sounds obvious enough but I want to set expectations for what this is going to be.
The fact that the New York Islanders sit at the top of the division (with three points) in hand won’t be on this list. It’s a highlight of the week that’s for sure but it didn’t happen on the ice (technically).
Nor will the fact that the New York Islanders currently sit with more points than the Toronto Maple Leafs over the same number of games. Or that Leafs fans are pulling out their hair trying to figure out what’s going on. Or that their $6.25 million-a-year coach is using hockey clichés such as “puck luck”. Remember those days Isles fans?
Although I guess writing that out just there was bringing it up. (See what I did there?)
So between January 14th to January 20th, what are the five plays that need to be further celebrated? What five individual New York Islanders moments from the last week made us all sit up and cheer?
