Found October 25, 2013 on The Pensblog:
Guy's reaction behind the net says it all... Josh Bailey capped a furious ending for the Islanders, who were trailing one minute, and then winning the next. What a disaster for Jeff Zatkoff, who played an OK game, only to give up two goals late. Pens have to turn around and play the Leafs tomorrow in Toronto.  

Brian Strait Hurt, Martinek in Against Pittsburgh

Brian Strait is day-to-day with an upper body injury and will miss tomorrow’s game against Pittsburgh. That leaves the Islanders with six defenders so Radek Martinek will make his season debut tomorrow night.

Islanders rally late, top Penguins

Josh Bailey's goal with 1:40 left capped the Islanders' furious third-period rally, and New York edged the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 on Friday night. Bailey took a feed from Frans Nielsen in front of the net and beat goalie Jeff Zatkoff for his fourth goal of the season. The Islanders scored three times in the final 7:14 and erased deficits of 2-1 and 3-2. Nielsen, Matt Moulson...

Spano’s Deception: The 1996 Sale of the New York Islanders

For a long the New York Islanders have been a mediocre franchise. Instead of keeping their young talent they like to trade it in order to acquire big names. For example they have traded Zdeno Chara, Roberto Luongo, and others and in return; no megastars. Although these questionable moves were made nothing even remotely matches […]

Rick DiPietro To Continue Career In The AHL by   Steven Ellis

The legendary saga of Rick DiPietro has continued. He has signed a PTO with AHL’s Charlotte Checkers. Yes, he can’t even get a standard player contract. No one could have predicted that DiPietro would spend more time on the IR than on the ice, but he has been limited to 47 games since 2008. His injuries troubles began in March 2007 when he [...]

Rick DiPietro signs tryout deal with AHL's Charlotte Checkers

Recap: Pens vs Isles by @pghgirl15222

The last time the Penguins faced the New York Islanders was in the 2013 NHL playoffs where the Islanders had basically melted down and succumbed to what was a very lucky Pittsburgh Penguins team. Flash-forward to Friday night and you saw basically the same Islanders team that continues to matchup really well against this team. Hate to say it, but this was about the most complete...

RECAP: Game 10. Pens lose 4-3.

  Don't be surprised if this game starts a big-time run for the Islanders. Even though they got outshot, a stat that was aided by five fruitless Penguins power plays, the Islanders are starting to become a really tough team again. Don't get us wrong; their defense is still Swiss cheese, and no one has any idea which Evgeni Nabokov is going to show up on any given night...

Pick The Winner (10/25)

Undaunted from last night, we play over/under again tonight. 2 UNIT = New York Islanders @ Pittsburgh Penguins - OVER 5.5 GOALS (-125) (Note: I am risking 2.00 units to win 1.60) The 3-3-3 Islanders will head to Pittsburgh to take on the 7-2 Penguins. New York has lost 5 of their last 6 games, but they've been scoring goals. New York has 3 or more goals in 4 straight...

Islanders-Penguins Preview

The Pittsburgh Penguins needed six games to eliminate the New York Islanders from the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs last season. A fifth straight regular-season victory over the visiting Islanders on Friday night will keep the Penguins from losing consecutive games for the first time this season. After taking four of five from New York during the regular season...

Jeff Zatkoff probably starting tomorrow night

Pens have a back-to-back this weekend, and they're fortunate enough to have one of those games at home. Zatkoff has probably been eating flies and talking to himself in the corner since the Florida game, so it would be nice to give him a home start to get him a little more comfortable. Are we short-changing the Islanders? Nope. We're never gonna do that again after what we...
