I was really hopeful for a Canucks-Avalanche western conference final, but dang that different... Kudos to Joel Kiviranta though. That’s an amazing performance.

1-0 Isles.

 

They were not my pick to make the Conference nor the Cup Final.

 

If they win, Tampa Bay needs to take them seriously or they're going to choke again.

God bless Alain Vigneault. The Islanders would not have won if he hadn’t bungled the series at every possible opportunity.

Here I was thinking this was going to be a redux of the Mets and Phillies in 2007 and instead the Islanders executed that Game 7 perfectly to a T. Conference final appearance for the Islanders. I'm just so psyched for this!

Well, at this point I’m now an Islanders bandwagon fan. Nothing would make me happier than seeing Pajama Boy and all the Leafs fans have to watch the team he left hoist the Cup.

When I was really, really little, my first exposure to hockey was reading the World Book encyclopedia mention the Islanders during their Stanley Cup run. So my tiny brain just accepted that they were a big deal. It always weirded me out how a team that was so dominant could just disappear.

 

Now I feel like I've come full circle in a strange kind of way.

They would love nothing more. They can add the boroughs to the island while they're in there.

If the Islanders win the Cup, you just know there'll be a sector of people begging them to bring out the Fisherman again as their Cup celebration uniform next season or some crap, like what St. Louis did this year with their 90's kit (which isn't great, but it's far and away superior to the Fisherman).

Yes, they're called r/hockey posters, and they should be summarily dismissed and told to go back to beating off to Hurricanes dances

They should definitely add another orange stripe to the stick in their crest. I'm pretty sure the 4 lines represent their 4 Cups.

 

They used to have 4 stripes on one of the shoulders, when they wore navy.

This is an interesting semi finals in the Stanley Cup playoffs.  You have a team in Vegas that went to the Stanley Cup Finals 2 years ago and three teams, Dallas, NY Islanders and Tampa Bay who have won zero Stanley Cups in the 2010's (although Tampa made it to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2015).  Tampa last won the thing in 2004, Dallas in 1999 and Islanders in 1983.

well to add to that, the Islanders and the Minnesota North Stars (now Dallas) met in the '81 Cup Final

A year off on Dallas; they won in 1999. 1998 was the second of Detroit's back-to-back Cups.
