In the latest edition of the IslesBlog Podcast, Joe Buono and Tom de Luca are joined by Chris King, the play-by-play voice of the Islanders on WRHU 88.7FM. Kinger tells us what has surprised him most about the Islanders outstanding first 46 games, the impact Johnny Boychuk has made in the dressing room and why the top line has finally found it’s groove. Later, Chris talks about the “Best Fourth Line Ever,” Anders Lee’s impressive rookie campaign and Brock’s Nelson’s scoring slump. Plus, questions submitted via the “Bleed Orange and Blue” Facebook Group and Chris talks about the added level of respect the Isles are receiving around the league.

  • The impact Johnny Boychuk has had on and off the ice

  • How the fourth line changes momentum with their energy and physical play
  • Anders Lee’s “man strength” and what makes him successful “in the paint”
  • Brock Nelson’s scoring drought without the Kid Line
