Islanders: Stanley Cup Winners And Goals For Correlation

Defense is something the New York Islanders pride themselves on. They look to let in the fewest amount of goals as possible, which they've taken a step back at this for the last month or so, even if it's at the cost of offense.

Josh Ho-Sang, Kieffer Bellows, and Oliver Wahlstrom didn't make the team out of camp which led to Michael Dal Colle being in the top-six for about 15 minutes. The point, the Isles value defense over offense by a significant margin.

While the old saying goes "defense wins championships" that's not always the case.
