TORONTO -- New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano gave the Toronto Maple Leafs credit for their fast start in racing to a 3-1 lead after the first period on Thursday night.

Report: Leafs without Lupul

Six to eight weeks, perhaps? That seems to be the standard period of absence for an NHL player with a broken/fractured forearm. So there's a good chance that's how long the Toronto Maple Leafs will have to manage without top-line forward Joffrey Lupul.  As reported by the Toronto Sun, preliminary X-rays revealed a fracture after Lupul took a shot (from teammate Dion Phaneuf...

Islanders Come to Town: Is the Power Play Improving?

Ok, so I am obsessed with Dougie Hamilton. I truly believe he is going to be a difference maker for this team's power play and defense. Even though he is just 19 years old he has already helped on both ends. On Wednesday against the Rangers Dougie made a few great checks to save scoring opportunities and ended the dreadful 0-11 power play when he blasted a puck from within...

‘Tuukka Time’ Strikes Again for Bruins as Islanders Try Rusty Rick DiPietro in Potentially Lopsided Matchup (Video)

Rask will start his fourth straight game to start the season on Friday night, with Rick DiPietro getting the nod for the Islanders for his first start since 2011. It would appear to be a matchup slanted in the Bruins’ favor, but DiPietro...

Colton Orr And Deryk Engelland Beat The Crap Out Of Each Other (Again) Last Night

Colton Orr and Derek Engelland have a rivalry that dates all the way back to 2000, when they first dropped the gloves as youngsters in the Western Hockey League (WHL), and then later in the AHL and NHL. As you can see from the video above, that rivalry still burns pretty good to this day. Engelland has a history of getting the better of Orr (see here and here) but this latest bout...

Game 4 Preview: Islanders -- Rask slated for fourth start

  The Bruins return to the Garden after their brief visit to New York. Against the Rangers the defense, well, looked like this: We expect that to not happen again tonight against the NY Islanders.
