Anders Lee is still having a tough time accepting the Islanders loss in the Eastern Conference Finals.
The Islanders came close in 2020 in their quest to get to the Stanley Cup Final, falling just a pair of games short to Tampa Bay. “Taking 10 months to complete and all the things that everyone went through from the shutdown, where we were as a team before that and then I think how we came out of it and the run that we went on, I think there’s always going to be that sting of not completing what we set out to do,” Lee said on a Zoom call Monday morning. “I look back on it now, a month out, still pretty special. We learned a lot, we did a lot. And I think that sting and that disappointment, it’ll never leave you, I don’t think. But I think it’s something we can handle and grow from.” Lee thinks the NHL will be back for the 2020-21 season and is looking forward to competing once again. Lee had 20 goals and 43 points in 68 games last season and added another seven goals and four helpers in 22 post-season games. He had 40 goals three seasons ago and is more than capable of scoring 30 in a full season. Oct 20 8:49 am (EST)
