Anders Lee reflects on Islanders’ trip to conference finals
Whether they played at Downtown’s Barclays Center, the renovated Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York, or at the NHL’s bubble sites in Toronto or Edmonton, Alberta, the New York Islanders put together their best season in nearly three decades this past year.
And team captain Anders Lee was right in the middle of it.
“It’ll be a season for any team and anyone who was a part in it, it’ll be a season you’ll never really forget,” Lee said Monday, just over a month since the Isles were eliminated from the Eastern Conference finals by the eventual Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning.
The campaign marked New York’s deepest run in the postseason since 1993, when they also lost in the conference finals.
