KEVIN POULIN RUMORS & GOSSIP

WATCH: Kevin Poulin makes incredible stick save

The New York Islanders are probably still steaming after the NHL overturned what looked like a perfectly fine goal from Thomas Vanek. Ultimately, Vanek's OT goal wasn't counted because the NHL believed he kicked it and the Islanders went on to lose in a shootout. While this is one game Isles fans probably want to forget, there was one incredible moment from Kevin Poulin...

Dan Petriw: Poulin snaps Isles Slide

I almost don’t know how to write this. It’s been so long, how does it go again?? Well let’s give it a shot then; last night Kevin Poulin stopped 46 of 48 San Jose shots and the New York Islanders ended their dreaded ten game losing streak by defeating the Sharks by a score of 3-2 in a shootout. The Islanders were thoroughly outplayed for most of the game and the...

Isles snap 10-game skid with shootout win over Sharks

Kevin Poulin kept the struggling New York Islanders in the game long enough for their top line to give the team a much-needed win. Kyle Okposo scored the tying goal with 1:37 left in regulation and got the game-winner in the fourth round of a shootout to help the Islanders snap a 10-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night. "This is a...

Isles backup Kevin Poulin may get the call soon

Most of the Islanders wait roughly two minutes to see action. Two or three line shifts and the skaters come over the boards and into the fray. Kevin Poulin whose job description is "backup goalie" sat for seven days before he was called to be Evgeni Nabokov's proxy (a 3-2 loss to Chicago) and since has waited another 13 days. With back-to-back games coming this week...

NHL, NHLPA will tweak goalie gear…sort of

As the Score's Kevin Poulin notes, the NHL and NHLPA have come to something of an agreement regarding the league's desire to reduce the thigh rises of goalies' pads. Per InGoal Magazine's Kevin Woodley: Told NHL gets its 10% reduction on goalie pad knee-to-thigh allowance (~2" avg) but PA balked at enforcing thigh rise separately with 8" max —...

Dee Karl: Poulin & Orange vs Blue

It is probably no surprise to anyone that today Kevin Poulin accepted his qualifying offer from the Islanders. It is a two way agreement, but in order for Kevin to play in Bridgeport, he would have to clear waivers. Now, whether this is a calculated risk or not is another question. Is Garth Snow 100% sure that Poulin will be his Isles back-up to Nabokov? Is it Anders Nilsson...

Kevin Poulin Returned to AHL Bridgeport

The Islanders returned Kevin Poulin to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers yesterday. Poulin did not see any game action in the week he spent as Al Montoya’s back up. The move appears to be a precursor to the return of Evgeni Nabokov, who has been on injured reserve retroactively since November 17 with a groin injury. Prior to the injury he was 1-5-0 with a .910 save percentage in eight...
