IslesBlog Podcast: Sound Tigers Play-by-Play voice Phil Giubileo on the Islanders


In this edition of the IslesBlog Podcast, Joe Buono and Tom de Luca are joined by the pbp voice of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers Phil Giubileo. Phil reflects on arguably the Islanders worst performance of the season in Edmonton, Jack Capuano hinting at more line changes, Michael Grabner’s return and more. Later, we turn our attention to the Islanders AHL affiliate as Phil updates us on Cory Conacher’s play, Ryan Pulock’s injury and a very successful Star Wars promotion at the Webster Bank Arena. Finally, it’s the return of “It Was Seen At The Coliseum” as Tom de Luca remembers Mike Bossy’s 500th goal from January 2nd 1986.

Joe, Tom and Phil discuss:

  • The Islanders “unacceptable” 5-2 loss in Edmonton
  • Whether Chad Johnson should have gotten the nod vs the Oilers
  • Jack Capuano hinting at line changes for the game at Vancouver
  • Players in danger of being a healthy scratch when Michael Grabner returns
  • A Star Wars themed win for the Sound Tigers in Bridgeport on Sunday
  • Cory Conacher’s play since being waived and sent down to the AHL
  • An update on Ryan Pulock’s upper body injury
  • Kevin Poulin’s mindset after a brief stint with the Islanders
