I'm still reeling from last night.
Not so much that the Islanders lost once again by falling apart in the third period. But more because I still cannot get over the embellishment call on Keith Aucoin. I used to love this game. LOVE it. This season the officiating has made it bearly tolerable.
This morning I heard there was talk of creating a "divers list" of repeat offenders for the re...
BEST OF MAXIM
Islanders head coach Jack Capuano faced the media once again after yet another home loss. It's a role he has become accustomed to. Luckily for Jack, the room is never hostile. This isn't Toronto.

Thursday marks the beginning of the Canadian junior's playoff season or as the Medicine Hat Tigers call it "Four Rounds To Glory" as New York Ranger and New York Islander prospects begin a quest to earn a spot in the 2013 Memorial Cup. Two Ranger prospects Josh Nicholls (2013 UFA) and Shane McColgan (2011 5th) have already qualified as their Saskatoon...
The New York Islanders are the worst home team in the NHL, and their recent issues in the third period aren't doing them any favors.
The Islanders will try address those concerns and conclude an unpleasant four-game homestand on a positive note Sunday against the league-worst Florida Panthers.
New York (13-15-3) is three points behind the New York Rangers and Carolina, who...

There's something about the Islanders that we really dislike. For a team that has been pretty awful for many years, they always seem to give the Penguins trouble. This is especially true for games...
