Islanders roll past woeful Panthers

So it’s that time of year again when Islanders’ games don’t mean anything and so, in turn, they start playing well. Though ‘well’ was a relative term Tuesday night at the Coliseum, when they thumped the absolutely atrocious Panthers, 4-2, making the Isles 5-1-1 in their past seven — and still hopelessly out of the playoff conversation, 30-35-10 with just seven games...

Panthers start fast, but Islanders pull away with 4-2 victory

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- Josh Bailey had a goal and assist, and the New York Islanders kept up their strong finish with a 4-2 victory over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night. New York, on the verge of elimination in the Eastern Conference playoff race, bounced back quickly from Quinton Howden's short-handed goal less than two minutes in and sent the Panthers to their fourth straight...

Islanders at Lightning game preview

TV: Sun Sports Time: Pregame coverage begins at 7 p.m. The Tampa Bay Lightning continue to earn points, just not as many as they would like. While the Lightning look to extend their point streak to 10 games, they'll also try to avoid a third consecutive defeat Thursday night against the visiting New York Islanders. Tampa Bay's current 5-0-4 stretch is the club's longest...

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...

Rangers blow pair of two goal leads, fall to Isles

AP Photo/Frank Franklin II The Rangers started this game the way they started every other game during this 11-4-1 swing: By playing strong hockey and capitalizing on early scoring chances. Problem is that despite the pair of two-goal leads, the Islanders were the team dominating puck possession. The Rangers didn’t catch up on puck possession until the Isles took a pair of penalties...

Dan Petriw: Isles, Leafs tonight in Toronto

The Islanders return to the ice tonight in Toronto as they take on the Maple Leafs. The big news out of Toronto is lineup decisions made by Islander head coach Jack Capuano today. Eric Boulton will dress tonight and I understand that logic as the Leafs are a team that is all too willing to drop the gloves. I actually thought the odd man out tonight would be Colin McDonald but...

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...

Dan Petriw: Isles look to right the ship tonight

The Islanders will look to end a three game winless streak tonight in Long Island against the struggling Edmonton Oilers. Matt Donovan will return to the line up tonight as well as Colin McDonald. With the team speed that the Oilers possess it only makes sense that Donovan replaces Matt Carkner. While the Oilers have been giving up goals at a remarkable clip; they have a high...

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...

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....
