COLIN MCDONALD RUMORS

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...

Isles Fans not Thrilled with Barclays Center

The Islanders played the Devils at the Barclays Center yesterday. Some fans weren't thrilled with the experience. “There’s no place for tailgating,” said Megan Leach of Medford. “That changes the whole dynamic of going to Islander games. You get the creature comforts of a new arena, but I was unimpressed with the spectator area,” she said. “There were a lot of terrible...

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.
