BEST OF MAXIM
Uniondale, NY -- Milan Jurcina and Nino Niederreiter are making progress to return to the Islanders lineup.
“Jurcina , I think, is ready to go when called upon,” Islanders head coach Jack Capuano said following his teams 3-0 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins. “Nino should skate with the team if not by the end of the week then by the first of the week.”
Both players have yet...

Few series, especially ones in the regular season, sear memories into the brain like the Pens and Islanders did last year. From Sidney Crosbyâs desperate attempts to keep his point streak alive, to Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro acting like he won the...
People have known for a while that John Tavares is a pretty fair hockey player. Hey, there is a reason he was the first prospect selected in the 2009 entry draft.

What the Islanders said yesterday and what they feel tonight when the puck drops against the Penguins at the Coliseum might be two separate sentiments.“For me, it’s not even a rivalry,” coach Jack Capuano told the team’s website after yesterday’s practice. “It’s just another game...
The New York Islanders seemingly caught Pittsburgh for a home-and-home set at the wrong time, as former Conn Smythe Trophy winner Evgeni Malkin returned to the Penguins' lineup in Tuesday's opener.
Then again, there is hardly ever a good time for the Islanders to face Pittsburgh as long as Marc-Andre Fleury is in net.
Coming off a shutout that was his ninth win in 11 starts...
Faced with overcoming yet another injury, the Pittsburgh Penguins don't seem too concerned about last year's rift with the New York Islanders.
Regrouping from back-to-back losses remains the focus of Islanders coach Jack Capuano.
Seeking a fourth consecutive victory, the Penguins look to continue their domination of the Islanders when the teams begin a home-and-home set...
