Islanders’ “History Lesson” To The Semis

September 6, 2020

History repeated throughout the New York Islanders’ 7 game quarterfinal series triumph vs the Philadelphia Flyers.

In all 5 playoff(s) series, between the two teams, one team or the other took a commanding lead, and all five teams facing elimination, won at least one game, two won two games and one, the ’75 Islanders won three.

However, none of the five trailing teams won the series as the Islanders eased in game 7 and now are pretty big underdogs vs the Tampa Bay Lightning in one NHL “semi.”


Ed Westfall scored the only goal in a Saturday night, game 7/quarterfinals win for the ’75 Islanders at Pittsburgh vs the Penguins.

Another last night, 2 weeks before Mr. Westfall turns 80. ’80 the Isles won the first of four straight crowns, in ’75 the Flyers won their second straight title but have not won another.
