Found October 17, 2013 on The Prospect Park:
Ryan Pulock (Brandon Wheat Kings) Just one game involving a New York Islander prospect and that prospect continues to stand out as a player to watch this year. Ryan Pulock (NYI 2013 1st) scored with just 16 seconds remaining in regulation sending the game to overtime as his Brandon Wheat Kings rallied to defeat the Moose Jaw Warriors 3-2 in overtime. It was Pulock's 3rd goal since rejoining the Wheat Kings from the Islanders and he is making them count. A game tying goal to go along with a game winner is not a bad stat to have. The captain of the Wheat Kings is doing what you want from your team leader and that is make the big plays to win games. Canada may have goalie issues with their Under-20 squad but you put Pulock with fellow Islander prospect Griffin Reinhart and you have the start of a pretty solid defensive corp.

Dee Karl: "Raising An Olympian" John Tavares

John Tavares has been one of Canada’s favorite sons for a long time. He has represented his country in two World Junior tournaments bringing home gold. Should all go well, Tavares may represent Canada in Sochi at the Winter Olympics. It’s an understatement to say Canada is proud of John Tavares. As Islander fans, so are we. Proctor and Gamble is proud to announce...

Tavares, Islanders edge Oilers

John Tavares netted the go-ahead goal late in the second period, and the New York Islanders overcame a quick scoring spurt by Edmonton's Taylor Hall in a 3-2 victory over the Oilers on Thursday night. Tavares beat goalie Devan Dubnyk with a snap shot in front with 1:07 left in the second off a pass from Kyle Okposo. It was the fourth goal of the season for the Islanders captain...

No Win Tuesday

Griffin Reinhart (Edmonton Oil Kings) Just 2 games on Tuesday night with both involving 2012 New York Islander drafted prospects and neither saw their team come away with a win. Griffin Reinhart (NYI 2012 1st) and his Edmonton Oil Kings played host to the Prince Albert Raiders on Tuesday night and really the Oil Kings had a night they would prefer to forget. The power went out...

Dan Petriw: Thin Blue Line

The New York Islanders were one minute away from securing two points last night when a reoccurring problem tripped them up again. The inability for Brian Strait to clear the puck after a clean faceoff win led to the game tying goal and an eventual 4-3 shoot lost to the Buffalo Sabres. For the most part the Islanders played one of their better games of the season. The forward...

Islanders beat bad Oilers squad, ending losing skid

It will take many more of these before the demon is banished but this is at least a start. That demon of course is the Islanders’ penchant for letting wins turn into losses for watching as third-period leads turn into little more than moral victories. But Thursday night at a sparsely populated Coliseum the Islanders managed to put one away a 3-2 victory over the inexperienced...

Dan Petriw: Isles look to right the ship tonight

The Islanders will look to end a three game winless streak tonight in Long Island against the struggling Edmonton Oilers. Matt Donovan will return to the line up tonight as well as Colin McDonald. With the team speed that the Oilers possess it only makes sense that Donovan replaces Matt Carkner. While the Oilers have been giving up goals at a remarkable clip; they have a high...

Dee Karl: Hall Scores 2 in 8 Seconds But Isles Prevail

I don’t like seeing Matt Moulson on another line. But that’s just me. Ryan Smyth was booed every time he touched the puck. Cheers rained down on him when he was knocked off it. This was his 1205 game in the NHL. That’s quite a career. First goal came at 9:59 of the first period when Travis Hamonic behind the net found Josh Bailey waiting to the right of...
