New York Islanders rookie Anders Lee came off a month the size of his frame, and the National Hockey League took notice, announcing that the 24-year-old Lee has been named Rookie of the Month for February, 2015.

What is the REAL DEAL With Number 46?

I have been quiet on this for a long time, but it is finally time to ask the question:

WHAT DID MATT DONOVAN DO TO BE STUCK ON THE BENCH ALL THIS TIME????

I have been a little biased on Matt for the past few years.  It started when I got a re-tweet from a lady named Kathryn Donovan.  Yes, she is Matt’s Mom.

I became quick friends with her from the minute we started talking.  She is such a PROUD hockey mom.  Her and her husband Larry are huge hockey parents, who spent many an early morning driving their son to practices and games all throughout Oklahoma and the neighboring states.  Matt went into the US hockey development program, and then went to the University of Denver.  Matt then won a gold medal at the World Junior Championships in Saskatchewan.

Blog: Depth Over Trade Deadline

View From Section 317's picture

As the trade deadline approaches, many Islanders fans would love to see defenseman Johnny Boychuk sign a long term deal. I myself have suggested getting a two-way face off specialist to improve on a team that values puck possession. Some would also like to see the Islanders make a move to improve the special teams, especially the penalty kill that continues to plague the Islanders, such as their 5-3 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.

The fact that the New York Islanders are taking their NHL talents south to Brooklyn cannot be ignored. Will the move come with raging success or failure?

As we enter the last full month of regular season hockey, the Metro Division is up for grabs. Any team that is not from New Jersey, Carolina, or Columbus could win this thing. Even though the Islanders faltered against an inferior Hurricanes team Saturday night, there are still plenty of games to go, and anything can happen.

Islanders Prospects Getting Ready For Second Season

If you were looking for huge numbers from the New York Islanders prospects then Saturday night was not your night. But what you did get was them and their teams improving their playoff prospects or discovering their futures. No prospect earned any stars but given what some of the prospects did win then odds are good they will not care.

Chicago Blackhawks v New York Islanders

I sometimes am astounded by the sheer coincidental timing of events compared to this countdown.

With 41 days to go until the final regular season game at the Nassau Coliseum, we take a look at the man who lost a shutout with 20 seconds left Friday night…and also set a new franchise record with his 33rd win of the season, number 41, Jaroslav Halak.

The New York Islanders might still win the Metropolitan division this year. They also might lose it by a point or two. If the latter scenario plays out, they will look back to this game as one they let slip from their grasp.
