Running With The Devils:
New Jersey Devils
New York Islanders
The all-of-the-sudden red hot scoring machine that is the New Jersey Devils play host to the season’s done/not much left to play for New York Islanders tonight at The Rock. Here’s the thing, when it comes to the Islanders this season, we’ve played some real stinkers. Here’s a fact that you might not know, that won’t make you feel good about tonight. 3 times this season the Devils have scored 6 goals in a game and 3 times that 6 goal game was followed up by a 5 goal game, most recently last week against Tampa Bay and then Carolina on Saturday. The previous 2 6 goal game then 5 goal games were followed up by a 1 goal game, 1 which we lost 4-1 to the Rangers on 12/16 and one that we beat the Rangers 1-0 on 2/7. SO, if I am a betting man, we are only putting 1 puck in the net tonight. Come on Hedburg, we need to keep every puck out of the net.
This will be the final meeting between the Islanders and the Devils this season. The Devils lead the season series 3-2 but those 2 losses to t...

New York Islander goaltender Rick DiPietro bought lunch for 5,000 fans at yesterday’s Islanders-Senators game.

The franchise goalie paid for the food out of his own pocket to thank the fans for all of their support.
Pat LaFontaine was the face of the New York Islanders following their glory years of the early 80s. He was one of the best players in the NHL, and is one of the best American-born hockey players off all-time. During his 7 years with the team, he scored 287 goals and recorded 238 assists. But if you were to go to Islanders games, unless you find fans wearing his old jersey, you will...
