Islanders Insight’s Top Shelf: The “Hangover|Let Down” Edition

In perhaps the most bizarre and equally frustrating of circumstances, the New York Islanders failed to clinch a playoff spot last night, losing on the road to the Philadelphia Flyers by a score of 5-4. The Isles could have clinched with an Ottawa loss, but the Senators rallied back to beat the Penguins in overtime. New York had a rally of their own, scoring three goals in the third...

Some Islanders Traditions Will Never Go Away

Since the inception of the New York Islanders in 1972, they have provided a level of access and availability that most professional teams do not offer. There was a reason they had their victory parades in the early 1980’s on Hempstead Turnpike, as opposed to other more prestigious locations. That was simply because they not only wanted, but needed to share the experience with their...

Islanders: One Step Forward, Two Steps Back Injury Wise

Not that there is ever a good time for injuries, but with 21 games remaining in the 2014-15 regular season in a division that has shown itself to be the most competitive in the entire league, the New York Islanders are going through an extremely tough time that has tested their depth to the maximum.

Islanders Enter Home Stretch With Favorable Odds

Islanders Insight Top Shelf: 2/15/15

The New York Islanders continue to bounce back from losing streaks unlike anything we have seen in the past. Last night, they won their fourth straight game, 6-3 over the Columbus Blue Jackets, on the heels of a strong three goal third period. This all coming after they dropped four out of five. It really has to be a testament to all the players in that room and the influence of...

Colin McDonald Making His Case To Stay On The Island

If Colin McDonald is only up with the Islanders on a temporary basis, someone better tell him that. The 30-year-old, former second-round draft pick has recorded two goals, an assist, and 15 hits since in the two games he has played since his recall from AHL Bridgeport. Things sure have not been easy for McDonald this season. After playing 70 games for the Islanders last season, the...

Maple Leafs-Islanders Preview

After doing just enough to get by the NHL's two worst teams, the New York Islanders are hoping to step it up in what appears to be another very favorable matchup. The Metropolitan Division leaders will try to send the Toronto Maple Leafs to a franchise-record 12th consecutive road loss Thursday night. New York (35-18-1) had dropped four of five before closing a three-game trip with...

Islanders Checking Line Making The Difference

Following the Islanders 3-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers, MSG Network’s Stan Fischler asked head coach Jack Capuano, “Would you say your fourth line is now your first line?” At first glance you might think it is a bizarre question, but that unit has been the Islanders most consistent line since the beginning of the season. You do not necessarily measure their level of success...

Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Day 58

Who, at the beginning of the season, would have thought Colin McDonald would be leading the Islanders to a pair of victories in February? Certainly not me. But the physical, pesky forward is making a real impressive case for himself staying with the big club for the foreseeable future. Speaking of pesky forwards, not so physical though, our countdown to the last regular season game...
