The Lip credits coach Jack Capuano for calling out the lackluster play of Bailey, Nelson, and Strome following the Islanders’ loss to the Penguins, the Hip and the Lip celebrate the Islanders clinching a playoff berth, the Hip acknowledges a hugely favorable momentum shift in the team’s confidence following wins against the playoff-bound Lightning, Capitals, and Rangers, and the Hip and the Lip evaluate the point of view of whether the Islanders hurt themselves for playoff positioning by defeating the Rangers (NO!).
I haven’t personally been there but I’m under the impression that the Overlook on 44th between 2nd and 3rd is a bona fide Islander bar. They consistently advertise prizes and giveaways for Islander games on their FB Feed: https://www.facebook.com/overlook.nyc/
It’s likely where I’ll be hitting up during Playoff away games. Might be worth checking out!
Thanks, Kyle! If we go there next week we’ll tweet it out.
