New York Islanders Fans: “We Want Boston”


There is an old saying - be careful what you wish for.  The New York Islanders fan base is getting their wish, and the Isles will meet the Bruins in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

New York took care of the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night in six games.  The Islanders will only get a few days to recoup following their physical series with the Penguins. 

As the game was coming to an end in the third period, a loud Nassau Coliseum was chanting, “We want Boston”.


You ask and you shall receive. 

The Bruins, who have been off since Sunday, have been awaiting their next opponent. 

Boston defeated the Capitals in five games on Sunday and will be well rested as they head into this series.  The two hockey clubs will begin their best-of-seven series on Saturday night from the T.D. Garden.

This upcoming series with the Islanders will be a tough, physical series for the Bruins.  In addition, the Bruins will have to face scorching red hot goaltender Ilya Sorokin.  The Isles' goalie was lights out against the Penguins last series. 

Boston will be up for the challenge, and on paper are the better team.  The Bruins have gone an impressive 16-5-1 since they have acquired Taylor Hall, Curtis Lazar and Mike Reilly.  Those three will help make a significant impact for Boston in this next round. 

The Islanders are going to hope their regular season success against the Bruins will translate into this round.  New York won five of their eight matchups this past season.  They outscored Boston 18-8 during those games. 

The puck will drop at 8 p.m. on Saturday, and the T.D. Garden will be rocking.  The Massachusetts coronavirus restrictions will be dropped as of Saturday.  The Garden will have an opportunity to be a sold out arena.  Bruins fans have been waiting for over a year for playoff hockey at the Garden, tomorrow night they’ll get that.  Islanders fans, be careful what you have wished for, because you might have poked the bear.
