This season the NHL has enacted a rule that prohibits players from removing their helmets prior to engaging in a fight. What they didn’t account for is what took place in tonight’s Islander-Devil pre-season game. Islanders’ enforcer Brett Gallant and Devils’ enforcer/hockey thinker Krys Barch exposed a really obvious loophole in the NHL’s new rule by removing each other’s helmets. It was actually quite an adorable hockey moment. Both were kicked out of the game after their third fight, because fighting the same person in one game is stupid and an automatic ejection.

There are few things better in hockey than two heavyweights dropping the gloves, adjusting their elbow pads and chucking knuckles.

The headline makes it sound like they sat down and went over a bunch of paperwork, but trust me, it involves them punching each other in the face.
Recently, the NHL’s GMs and the Board of Governors created and approved a new rule that gives players a two-minute minor penalty for removing their helmet before a fight, leaving you with seven minutes in the box; five for fighting and...

Over the summer the Islanders didn't do a ton in terms of bringing in new faces but they did add rough-and-tumble Cal Clutterbuck and his spectacular mustache.
Unfortunately his debut could be delayed with the season just two weeks away. That's because of an injury he suffered Tuesday night in the Isles' exhibition game in Calgary.
It was suspected that Clutterbuck...
Earlier this week Islanders forward Cal Clutterbuck suffered a laceration on his leg from a skate and coach Jack Capuano said he'd miss 'some extended time.' On Friday we found out how long that is.
The Isles announced that Clutterbuck is going to be out of the lineup for 4-6 weeks. That leaves a timeframe for a return to be in mid-October to as late as November 1.
Gotta love when hockey season is back, here is Brett Gallant vs Krys Barch all three times they squared off from the New York Islanders at New Jersey Devils game last night. I think it’s safe to say these guys don’t like each other.-TORussian Hockey Kids BrawlHockey Player Punches Ref In The Face
Josh Bailey scored two short-handed goals in the first period, leading the New York Islanders to a 5-3 preseason victory over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night.
The Islanders got to Devils goalkeeper Martin Brodeur for four goals on just eight shots over the first 20 minutes.
Anders Lee got the Islanders going with a power-play goal just 3:32 into the game. Bailey then made...

As the OHL and WHL teams made their 2013-2014 regular season debuts, the New York Ranger and New York Islander prospects didn't have ideal season openers but at least they were interesting. This will be one of the smallest groups of prospects playing in the juniors that is even if all of those eligible to return are sent back.
The New York Islanders and the Philadelphia Flyers have a fairly long history together. The animosity isn’t there like it was back in the early 80s, when the Islanders were a dominate team and the Flyers were transitioning from the Bullies to something new. Before this past season, the Flyers had dominated the Isles. However, times have changed and a lot of the Islanders’ young...

The New Jersey Devils will play their second game of the preseason tonight as they host another divisional opponent in the New York Islanders. Puck drop is at 7ET and can be seen on live streams on both the Devils' and Islanders' official websites.
Again, this preview will be different from what you're accustomed to seeing...
John Tavares of the New York Islanders is the #5 forward points-only hockey pool pick. He is a Canadian born center who is 22 years old. He may be one of the youngest of the super star snipers but he does not show inexperience on the ice. He leads his team in points every season and is likely to lead your fantasy team if you are fortunate enough to draft him. A downside to drafting is
Early in the third period of the Islanders 5-3 loss to the Flames in Calgary; winger Cal Clutterbuck left the game injuring himself on a check. This is more important than anything I will write about yesterdayâs games. Thankfully the injury does not appear serious and when the Isles release info on him I will surely update you all.
Now to last night games, In Regina the...
The NHL thought they had made a rule to keep helmets on and curtail fighting. A recent rule says that players can not remove their helmet for a fight/
It did not take long for players to remove each other helmets.
There you have it Brett Gallant of the Islanders and Krys Barch of the Devils.
The Islanders got in the imaginary win column last night with a 5-3 preseason win over the New Jersey Devils in Newark. More importantly though the Islanders avoided any injuries last night as news came out that Islander forward Cal Clutterbuck will miss 4 to 6 weeks with a skate laceration suffered against the Flames earlier in the week.
The Islanders team that took the ice...
Enforcers may not be the most skilled players on the ice, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be clever when it comes to skirting the rules.
Among a rash of rule changes passed for the upcoming season, the NHL is continuing to crack down on fighting. Starting with the 2013-14 season, any player who removes his helmet before a fight will be assessed an additional two-minute minor penalty...
