According to the New York Post's Josh Kosman, the New York Islanders may finally be facing the one personnel move that may free them from their status as professional cellar dwelers: it appears that Charles Wang may very well be ready to finally divest his interest in the dysfunctional team:
The New York Islanders appear to have started a new effort to find a buyer, The Post has learned. Owner Charles Wang has been in talks with The Raine Group, a Manhattan investment bank, regarding the sale of the money-losing team, two sources said.
Talks between Wang and Raine are said to be preliminary and the team owner hasn’t hired Raine — so the effort could lose steam.
An Islanders spokesman said there is no truth to the story. Raine could not be reached for comment.

I’ve written eight straight pieces about the NBA. Clearly, I need to switch things up a bit.
So let’s talk about the NHL. The Devils are not quite New York but as New Jersey’s lone professional team, they are playing some of the best hockey in the entire league and find themselves second in the Eastern Conference.
Many think the time is now for the Rangers who started off...
According to a story seen in the New York Post, New York Islanders owner Charles Wang is looking to sell the team. Sources have apparently told the NY Post that Wang has been in talks with an investment bank in Manhattan (The Raine Group) in regards to selling the team.
The Islanders have denied the rumor, but this is certainly a topic worth discussing.

A mostly quiet Saturday night for the New York Ranger and New York Islander prospects led to a mixed bag of results. One result turned out to be a really pleasant surprise as the Saskatoon Blades pulled off an impressive rally to win.

We’re not sure if the ice in Uniondale is made with holy water but John Tavares and Matt Moulson each had four-point nights in a 5-1 exorcism by the Islanders over the Devils.
Tavares scored two goals in 1:23 at the tail end of the second period to get Islanders up 2-0 before Moulson struck on the power play at 19:04 for a 3-0 lead. Tavares finished off his hat trick on the power...
Well I was hoping for a Valentine's Day massacre, but this fight between Eric Boulton and Arron Asham was pretty even. Both players landed their fair share of punches and both skated away pretty unblemished.
The Islanders got the last laugh and came away with the victory 4-3 over the Rangers. Fight video is below.

Eric Boulton has a job to do. Arron Asham doesn’t shy away from a fight. The two pugilists shared some love on Valentine’s Day with an old fashioned early first period brawl during the Islanders 4-3 win.
The Rangers bench likes it.
Boulton checks for a bloody nose. No blood.
Life goes on.

... first off, sorry for the late recap. Bad night for the Rangers, even worse for TheNYRBlog. My kids have had the flu all week and it hit me last night, while Adam, who was going to fill-in, lost internet access. Just a complete cluster...
The New Jersey Devils traveled to Long Island Saturday and started Johan Hedberg in hopes of picking up wins on consecutive nights over divisional opponents.
