Congratulation to ROB and the NEW YORK ISLANDERS on winning their first NASHL Stanley Cup.

New York became the fifth team in seven seasons to take home a Cup. The Islanders put up a very impressive run to take the title, going 16-1 during the post-season. For the third time and second time in the past three seasons, the Championship Series ended in a sweep.

This season's NASHL playoffs marked the third fewest number of games played in total – 83 combined. Last season marked the fewest with 81 games played.
