Season 2 Kickoff with Jeff Capellini of CBS

It’s been a long summer and offseason, hasn’t it? When we left off in May with The Isles Faithful Podcast – we were reeling in a sense, not from the season ending but more of HOW it ended against Carolina. Overall, it was clearly way MORE than we expected, but there was clearly some work...

Episode 35: The Sweeping

That’s it – that’s a wrap on the 2018/2019 New York Islanders season. The Islanders swept the Penguins in Round 1, only to be swept by Carolina in Round 2. But this isn’t exactly how we pictured the Islanders season, as we’ve said over the past few episodes, it’s not how we expected any of...

Episode 34: Round 2 Preview

This is a non-traditional episode from me here at The Isles Faithful Podcast. It’s a quick one, a few thoughts as we wait the final few hours before the Second Round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. I know I thought we’d be saying that 8 months ago, right? Yeah. The Islanders opponent this round –...

Episode 29: The Potential To Clinch

It’s stretch time, the most exciting time of the year if your team is still in the mix – and the Islanders are very much in that mix. There’s a lot of different scenarios that can play out over the next few games, but one is the most important part. The New York Islanders can...

Episode 28: No Time To Let Up With Arthur Staple

Ten games, eleven points – that’s all that’s separating the New York Islanders from reaching their first playoff birth in three seasons. But, let’s not forget that they’re not supposed to even be where they are – by all accounts right? Don’t tell that to Barry Trotz and company though, as the coach and his...

Episode 27: Off The Post With Brett Cyrgalis

Episode 24: Jillian Fisher Talks Isles

I’m often horrible when it comes to learning about new trends and talented people.

Have you heard the Islanders are first in the Metro?...

Episode 23: Talking Isles Art and Hockey With Sean Connors

Back to back Islanders wins over the weekend, coupled with back to back episode releases by The Isles Faithful Podcast. What could be better?

I have really dropped the ball this week, and for that I apologize. The nine day break aside, this last week I intended to record a few times, but I was exhausted – but enough of that. The podcast is BACK folks, and it’s back in a big way. We recorded TODAY, we will be...

The New York Islanders sit atop the Metropolitan Division as they start their 9 day all-star and league mandated bye-week break. Think about this for a minute.
