Flyers grab comeback win over Islanders

Craig Berube stood stoic at his postgame lectern, not happy enough to smile after a 6-4 win over the New York Islanders, not mad enough to throw something. His team’s win tied a franchise record for the ninth time in a season to come back and win after trailing in the third period. “That third period was good,” the coach said, “but the first two weren’t.” In the Flyers’...

Turnovers and sloppy play lead to disappointing loss to Islanders

Photo by Bruce Bennett/Getty Images This was a rough game for the Rangers. They gave up a pair of short handed goals, they committed 16 turnovers (to the Islanders 5), and the goaltending didn’t bail them out as they dropped a disappointing game to the Islanders by a score of 5-3. Henrik Lundqvist really isn’t to blame for the way the goals were scored, but the fact of the matter...

Dan Petriw: Thin Blue Line

The New York Islanders were one minute away from securing two points last night when a reoccurring problem tripped them up again. The inability for Brian Strait to clear the puck after a clean faceoff win led to the game tying goal and an eventual 4-3 shoot lost to the Buffalo Sabres. For the most part the Islanders played one of their better games of the season. The forward...

Brian Strait scores on his own team during crucial game six

At first glance it appears that Pittsburgh Penguins forward Jarome Iginla comes in and pokes in the rebound after Sidney Crosby made a few dazzling moves to get the puck to the net.  But if you watch the replay closely, New York Islanders defenseman Brian Strait clearly beats Iginla to the puck and then buries it in his own net past Evgeni Nabakov.  He was trying to clear the puck...

Sidney Crosby draws questionable penalty in Overtime

The Pittsburgh Penguins have had quite the struggle with the New York Islanders the last two games. In fact, it took a very questionable holding penalty on defenseman Brian Strait in order for the Penguins to get an early overtime power play and win the game. Many announcers, including Jeremy Roenick and the controversial Mike Milbury, agree that there should not have been a penalty...

Video- Discussing The Islanders’ Penalty In OT

from Arthur Staple of Newsday, Brian Strait took two penalties against Sidney Crosby in Game 3. The first, a hooking call early in the third, was the sort of call a player of Crosby's stature will get -- it wasn't much of a hook, but all eyes are on No. 87. In overtime, though, Crosby earned the call, getting good position on Strait, driving to the net and forcing...

RECAP: Game Two Typical. PENS LOSE.

When a team gets defecated on in a Game One, they're gonna bring the house in Game Two. And that is exactly what the Isles did. After being down 2-0 and 3-1, it was gut-check time. and they stole a game in Pittsburgh, all reminiscent of what the Pens did against Ottawa in 2006-2007 playoffs.   We've seen the Pens dominate one game and then turn around and play like...

Goal Breakdown: Islanders at Rangers

This was a complete game for the Rangers. Their forwards played well, their defense played well, their goaltending was great, and it was a full 60 minute effort. They weren’t perfect, but their mistakes did not cost them goals. They capitalized on the chances the Islanders gave them, and created their own chances by attacking the open ice. The best part about a clean game is that...
