Isles

The Islanders are back in action tonight against another team low in the standings and, normally, fans would all but mail this one in, especially after the beating they gave the Edmonton Oilers Sunday afternoon. However, the Islanders have been about as consistent as my 1996 Nissan Maxima during college. When it ran, it was great. The problem was, sometimes it wouldn’t, which is more or less the problem the Islanders have been going through this year.

The New York Islanders had a much needed laugher yesterday afternoon in Brooklyn against the Edmonton Oilers. While most of the country was waiting for the Super Bowl to commence, Islanders’ fans were treated to football-like numbers as the Islanders cruised to an 8-1 victory over their Pacific Division opponent.

Former Islanders’ 2009 draft pick and current Oiler goalie Anders Nilsson was driven from the game after three first period goals. Johnny Boychuk opened the scoring in his second game back from an upper body injury with a “Johnny Rocket” as he crossed the blue line. The Isles made it a point to just keep putting the puck on net for the remainder of the afternoon.

New York Islanders Surge Alongside Tavares’s Shot Rates

As John Tavares goes, so do the New York Islanders. With that said, the New York Islanders and their fans will be happy to know that after a mid-season slump, John Tavares’s shot rates have nearly doubled. After falling out of a playoff spot, the Islanders shoved their way back in with an 8-1 win over […]

Fresh off one of their worst losses of the season, the Islanders will look for to salvage their weekend of play this afternoon, when they take on the Edmonton Oilers. Edmonton is also coming off a brutal loss, falling to the Canadiens 5-1 in Montreal on Saturday.

NHL: New York Islanders at Detroit Red Wings

Johnny Boychuk returned Saturday afternoon for the New York Islanders, but a lack of urgency from the team led to a disappointing 5-1 loss. After a hard-fought game this past Thursday against the Washington Capitals, the Islanders seemingly went to Detroit unprepared.

Detroit, MI – It was hard to tell where the largest hole was on Saturday afternoon; in the Islanders defense or on the ice sheet itself. In the thick of a playoff race, the New York Islanders traveled to Joe Louis Arena to take on the Red Wings, with whom they are vying for a potential wild card position.

The New York Islanders are in Detroit to begin the first leg of their back-to-back game slate which finishes up at Barclays Center tomorrow afternoon. Coming off of a tough 3-2 loss to the Washington Capitals on Thursday night, the players should look to come out with the same intensity over the next 48 hours as they did against the team which eliminated them from the playoffs last year.

While there are no “moral victories” at this stage of the season, the team should feel good about themselves and how they dominated the best team in the league the other night. Only Braden Holtby and his phenomenal play prevented the Islanders from gaining at least one point. Simply put, he was sensational…but so were the Islanders.

In a gritty, commendable effort, the Islanders fell just short last night against the league-leading Washington Capitals. Late, preventable goals eventually did the Isles in, as Jaroslav Halak let in two stoppable shots that his team ultimately could not come back from.
