Walsh: Punish Crease Crashers Like Chris Kreider

at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on January 27, 2015 in Uniondale, New York.

Seeing a player speed up to get to a puck, skate hard at the net, and accidentally hit the goalie is a fact of life in the NHL. It’s part of the game. No one is purposely using their bodies as weapons and trying to injure the netminder. Or are they? At least a few around the NHL are not so sure when it comes to Chris Kreider.

Last night’s New York Islanders (65 pts) 5-2 loss to the Boston Bruins (59 pts) on Nassau Coliseum ice (something of a rarity as their 17-5 record should indicate) is nothing more than an instancea brief moment in time, a mere bump in the road for an otherwise resilient squad. Nothing a trip to Joe Louis Arena, where the Isles haven’t lost in over a decade, can’t fix.

Sitting in the Coliseum last night during the Islanders’ 5-2 loss to the Bruins, I had two thoughts brought to the forefront of my mind on multiple occasions.

1. I have personally never heard the Coliseum louder on a weeknight ever.

Islanders Recall Colin McDonald

Islanders Insight's picture

The Islanders have recalled forward Colin McDonald from Bridgeport on emergency basis. This recall doesn’t come as much of a surprise as the Isles had been playing with 12 forwards in their past two games due to both Kyle Okposo and Eric Boulton being placed on the injured reserve earlier in the week. Interesting to […]

Blog: NYIBC Got A Visit From Mike Bossy

View From Section 317's picture

The New York Islanders Booster Club were delighted to have long time Islanders great Mike Bossy as their guest on January 28th. Mike was gracious enough to talk about his opinions on the current team, shared some stories from the dynasty years, giving the fans a quick update on the legendary Isles coach Al Arbour and why the Islanders and Rangers aren’t a rivalry yet. Mike also talked about who he has liked the most on this Islanders squad at the start of this season while in between questions had a great sense of humor with a few quick jokes. Here are a few questions that were asked that may interest Islanders fans:

Myself: This current team has similar standings and numbers to the 78-79 Islanders, but didn’t win it all because they didn’t have a Butch Goring type of player, who in your opinion could be this years Butch Goring to help the Islanders go deep in the playoffs?

The Islanders had a rare home loss last night, dropping the game by a score of 5-2 to the Boston Bruins. The game was only the team’s fifth home loss this season, but it stung a bit more than other losses, as the Isles fought back from a 2 goal lead, only to give the lead back with less than four seconds left in the second period and give up another two goals in the final 20 minutes.

For the first time in my life (23 years), I think this might be the first time I’m going to the Coliseum on a Thursday night and expecting a sellout against a team not named the Rangers. And while Bruins fans travel well, they will most likely be muted amongst a sea of blue and orange fanatics.

The New York Islanders march towards the playoffs – that’s right, I said playoffs – continues tonight at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum as they take on the Boston Bruins, who come in riding a streak of their own at 6-1-3 over their last 10 games.

Did anyone else hear birds chirping this morning when they woke up? Sure, even at 5:15 AM when my alarm jolted me awake, there just seemed to be a bit more beauty in everything. Maybe that’s what happens after another three-goal margin of victory over the New York Rangers.

The New York Islanders responded to critics and skeptics quite well yesterday, beating the Rangers 4-1 on home ice. There were some who felt the Isles were not good enough on offense without Kyle Okposo, but that idea certainly was not in effect last night.
