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...

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 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...

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...
