Islanders 5, Hurricanes 4: Four-goal lead bent, but not blown

Colin McDonald and Matt Martin scored two goals each, the Isles 3-0 before the Canes had a shot on goal (and 4-0 before the 11th minute), and it was 4-3 at 2:42 of the second period. That kind of insanity is a fair reflection of a sloppily played game between two teams going nowhere. The New York Islanders survived for a 5-4 regulation win over the Carolina Hurricanes, slightly...

McDonald expected to return to Islanders’ lineup

The Islanders are expecting forward Colin McDonald back in the lineup for Thursday’s game against the Hurricanes in Carolina, and he couldn’t be welcomed any sooner. After Tuesday night’s disheartening 6-2 loss to the Capitals at the Verizon Center, coach Jack Capuano was rather pointed about shaking up his lineup and how that could positively affect his team moving into the...

Dee Karl: NHL14 Cover Vote & U Maine

As I've said previously, Colin McDonald is one of the most entertaining Islanders on the team. He's also a great sport. Maybe not the world's greatest actor, but seriously a great sport. Have you voted today? Now, for the rediculous. If in deed U Maine is tossing around Jack Capuano's name as a candidate for their next coach, it's beyond laughable....

Islanders Plan To Play “Their” Game Against The Pens

from Allan Kreda of the New York Times, Colin McDonald personifies the resolve of the resurgent Islanders as much as any player on their young roster. McDonald, 28, was a second-round pick by the Edmonton Oilers in 2003, but his road to his first Stanley Cup playoffs was tinged with disappointment after being let go by the Oilers and the Pittsburgh Penguins before signing...

Colin McDonald Gets Hearing, Should See Suspension for Hit From Behind on Ben Lovejoy (Video)

New York Islanders winger Colin McDonald delivered a dirty hit on Tuesday night, which he received a penalty for. It’s likely that he’s got even more punishment on the way. The NHL announced Wednesday that McDonald has earned himself a hearing with the league for his hit on Pittsburgh defenseman Ben Lovejoy in the second period of the Islanders’ win over the Penguins. The hit...

McDonald's future remains unclear

Colin McDonald did not know for sure that the Penguins would be sending him back to Wilkes-Barre, and he certainly did not know when it might happen. But he was all too aware that guys in his position, with one skate planted firmly in the American Hockey League, can have their status change at any time. Occasionally, that means they land a spot in the parent club's lineup.
