The Longshoreman’s Lament: Lighthouse Hockey

It seems like a lifetime ago that the Blackhawks were in the same position as the Islanders are right now. Coming off of years of embarrassing futility with a cadre of high draft picks only needing time to get their feet underneath them, only to finally make the playoffs and eventually run into a superior opponent and have the whole thing chalked up to a learning experience. There’s a lot to make the Islanders easy to root for, but that won’t be the case tonight as they make their first trip to the UC in nearly two calendar years.
