The New York Islanders run in the Stanley Cup Playoffs has not only earned them plenty of critical acclaim, but a spot in the upcoming docuseries, “Quest for the Stanley Cup.”
The show will take viewers behind the scenes and into the playoff bubbles of the remaining eight teams in the postseason. The program premiers on Sept. 2 on ESPN+ in the United States and on Youtube in Canada.
The New York Islanders, along with the Boston Bruins, Colorado Avalanche, Dallas Stars, Philadelphia Flyers, Tampa Bay Lightning, Vancouver Canucks and Vegas Golden Knights, will be chronicled on the show. It will be the fifth year the NHL has produced the all-access series about the postseason.
”Over the years, including the past two seasons on ESPN+, the success of Quest For The Stanley Cup is due in large part to the incredible access our embedded crews have to players, coaches and team personnel on and off the ice,” NHL chief content office Steve Mayer said in a press release. “This season, the unique circumstances of the 2019-20 season, the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs, and the bubbles in Edmonton and Toronto will provide unparalleled and compelling storytelling. We aren’t just chronicling the Playoffs; we’re recording history.”
This will not be the first time the Islanders will be involved in an NHL television production. The Islanders were featured in the “NHL Revealed: A Season Like No Other” series back in 2014, which chronicled their lead up to the Stadiums Series game at Yankee Stadium.
The Islanders have also made brief appearances in the “24/7 Road to the NHL Winter Classic” series at different points.
At the moment, the Islanders are in the middle of their best-of-seven series with the Philadelphia Flyers, which is their first postseason meeting since 1987. The Islanders currently hold a 1-0 edge in the series.
