Sadly for the Islanders fans and bandwagon, the dream died last night, 2-1 in a game 7. Joel "Big Goals Joel" Ward had a goal, of course. He's got a knack for that, like Lucic used to.
Tampa lasted one more game, but they're not in danger of moving to Brooklyn and such. I don't know if you came to Pile on the Isle but it was a lot of fun. Doubt we have another thing like that (New Jersey has cheap tickets, though, just FYI...think about it). RIP Coliseum. You were the best dump in the league.
Tonight, there are no games. No NHL games at all. There would have been if some teams had not closed out early, but they did. Such is life.
Anyways, the second round is almost upon us.
What's on tap, y'all?
