The New York Islanders were outhustled, outplayed, and outworked in all three zones of play in Game 2 against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

New York Islanders vs Tampa Bay Lightning Exemplifies Need For Playoff Change

Islanders Insight's picture

With the New York Islanders heading into game 2 with a 1-0 lead over the higher seeded Lightning, is it time for the NHL to consider a playoff formatting change?  The New York Islanders have been systematically robbed of their good performance this year by a corrupt NHL playoff system. To increase TV ratings, the NHL […]

Hockey from the Blind Side, Still Playing Hockey in May … Somehow

View From Section 317's picture

So the 23 year “curse” or whatever you want to call it ended last Sunday with the New York Islanders defeating the Florida Panthers in game 6 of their opening round playoff series. Words could not describe how good that made me feel. I would even say that when JT scored the overtime game winner, it was a rather emotional experience for me personally, as my mind looked back on the years since David Volek’s overtime winner against the Penguins and all that has happened to the Isles since then.

Then, on Wednesday after I had spent the day walking the fields and hills of Gettysburg and was awed by the history and the solemnness of those 25 square miles of American history from what was the turning point of the Civil War in 1863, I was thrilled and, yes, surprised by an Islander 5 to 3 victory over the Lightning to open the second round. Well, let me say that I was thrilled by the first two periods of play …

New York Islanders Won’t be as Lucky in Game Two

Islanders Insight's picture

The New York Islanders had lady luck on their side. By all accounts, the New York Islanders blew away their competition in their second round matchup against the Tampa Bay Lightning. But after some sober reflection, the win can be chalked up to some good ole fashioned luck. Game one finished with a score of 5-3 for […]

New York Islanders: Barclays Center Is Tavares’ House Now

Islanders Insight's picture

New York Islanders playoff series win against the Panthers makes this John Tavares’ time and Barclays Center is his house. The Coliseum versus Barclays Center debate is one that will probably rage for as long as the New York Islanders inhabit their new building. It’s all been laid out – the bad sight lines, poor […]

John Tavares leads the way as captain

Islanders Insight's picture

John Tavares continues to emerge as the New York Islanders top player but is hidden in the New York landscape. John Tavares has finally arrived as a mini superstar. In a city that has eight major sports teams, one player can easily get lost in the crowd. While Tavares has quietly been saving the Islanders for years, […]

The Curious Case of Josh Bailey

View From Section 317's picture

Throughout my three decades of following this team, fans have always seem to find guys to hate, no matter what their performance was:

Mikko Makela

Jeff Norton

Alan Kerr

Derek King

Sean Bates (minus penalty shot goal)

Oleg Kvasha

Andrew MacDonald

Brian Strait

The list can go on and on.

The one for the last couple of seasons that really comes to the top of the list, is on Josh Bailey.

Now – for this piece, I will say that I have zero ill will for this player; I am sure that he will feel that if you asked him, he would hope that his numbers and stats would be better.  We can debate that until the cows come home.

I will say this, from what I see in practices and games, I really feel that Josh is hard-working player.  I really feel that he tries to leave everything on the ice.

New York Islanders: John Tavares Has Stepped Up His Game

New York Islanders Captain John Tavares has caught fire at the right time. Early on in the season many believed John Tavares was having a down year. Initially, the usual Tavares production was just not the level that we have learned to expect from him. Although luckily for the New York Islanders, he has found […]

The New York Islanders started their first Second Round Stanley Cup Playoff series in 23 years with a 5-3 victory with an up-and-down effort for the club. The good news for the Islanders is that the Game One winner in every series during the First Round thus far in the postseason went on to advance in the playoffs.
