Elite Sports NY Actually, You're Wrong! Podcast 7

The 10th iteration of Into the Isles takes a look at a New York Islanders’ roster that is finding its’ identity at just the right time.

The New York Islanders are coming off of a statement 6-2 victory over the Nashville Predators on Saturday evening, and there are factors to consider when you think of them playing the 8-1-0 Vegas Golden Knights.

How will Doug Weight maintain confidence in his roster, but still keep their focus sharp to tackle the task of overcoming them for 60 minutes?

Additionally, more on Josh Ho-Sang’s demotion to the AHL and what it means for the Islanders going forward.
