 ๐Ÿ’Islanders: The Islanders pulled away from the big bad Boston Bruins in the second period of last nightโ€™s Game 6, scoring three unanswered goals in the second and ultimately winning 6โ€“2. The victory clinched the series and their spot in the Stanley Cup semifinals for the second straight season. LFG!

  • The Isles will once again face the Tampa Bay Lightning, whom they lost to 4-2 in last yearโ€™s conference finals. The defending Stanley Cup champions are looking to repeat, but with fans back in the Coliseum, we only have one question: are they ready for it

๐Ÿ€Nets: No James Harden? No problem. The Nets still dominated the Milwaukee Bucks in their 125โ€“86 win on Tuesday. TBH, the Bucks played terribly, and their star Giannis Antetokounmpo (pronounced YA-niss ah-dedo-KOON-bo) struggled. And with the way Kevin Durant has been playing, a sweep may be in sight. Game 3โ€™s tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET.

โšพ๏ธMLB: Pitcher Gerritt Cole led the Yankees to a 9โ€“6 win over the Minnesota Twins last night amidst drama surrounding his likely use of illegal performance-enhancing substances. Since the MLB announced that they would start cracking down on these substances, Coleโ€™s performance has struggled, so weโ€™re glad to see him earning a win. 

  • Cole isnโ€™t the only one alleged to be using these, and many are citing these substances as a potential reason offense has been so limited across the league this season. 

Mets first baseman Pete Alonso publicly disagreed with the MLBโ€™s decision, but clearly heโ€™s not having any issues hitting as he crushed three homers (!!!) in the Mets 14โ€“1 win over the Baltimore Orioles last night. Well played.
