The Scouting Report
On November 22, the Metropolitan Division’s top two teams vie for divisional supremacy as the Islanders host the Pittsburgh Penguins. Though the Islanders’ prolific offense averages three goals per game, the Penguins’ stout defense will test New York’s ability to find the net without GPS-guided pucks. No matter the result on Saturday, the season looks bright for the Isles, who are enjoying their winningest start since the 1987–88 season.
New York Islanders
When the Islanders dynasty ended on May 19, 1984 with a Stanley Cup loss to Edmonton, longtime New York Times sports columnist George Vecsey called it “the best sports team of this generation.” And that was probably a modest assessment. From 1979–1983, the Islanders didn’t just win—they dominated. They claimed four straight championships, and only lost two Stanley Cup games during that stretch. Indeed, the Islanders of the late 1970s and early 1980s were a dynasty, one of the greatest in the history of professional sports. Though repeating such a feat seems impossible, today’s Islanders strive to build on the organization’s storied history at Nassau Coliseum, which opened its doors in 1972—just months before the Islanders players hatched from their shells and the team competed in its first game.
