The New York Islanders are among the hottest teams in the National Hockey League. Despite two straight losses on March 16 and 18, the Islanders have won 10 of their last 12 games, including a 6-1 win against Philadelphia back on Saturday.
Of the Islanders' 20 wins, 13 of them have come on home ice as they're 13-1-2 at home and 7-7-2 on the road. Coming off a 35 point regular-season, Ryan Pulock has 12 assists this year as he's played in all 32 of the team's games.
And if you are cheering on Barry Trotz, Ryan Pulock, and the rest of the Islanders, Islanders Manitoba has everything you need. A new show hosted by the Rauliuk family on Facebook and Instagram. A new show airs every gameday and it features a pre-game show followed by a post-game show.
Mitchell Rauliuk says it's been a blast hosting the show, especially because New York has been so solid this season.
"Talking to the fans has been great, we have met a few Islanders fans from New Jersey and New York, so that's super cool," said Rauliuk. "It's also great watching Ryan Pulock and Barry Trotz be successful at the NHL level."
Islanders Manitoba will go live once again on Monday at about 5:30 p.m. ahead of a game against the Philadelphia Flyers. Mitchell and company will tee up the game which includes starting lineups, stats from previous games, and a whole lot more. And Mitchell says he would love for more people to watch the show and become a part of the interactions.
"We welcome everyone to watch the show, we're having a lot of fun doing it," ended Rauliuk. "We like answering questions and hearing other fan's thoughts."
Other hosts include Ryan Rauliuk, Boston Karlson, and Norman Lacquette who is the show's out-of-town scoreboard analyst.
