Feisty Panthers storm back to beat Isles 5-3

Venerable Nassau Coliseum may seem as ancient and run down as the Roman Coliseum, so perhaps that's why an angry, frustrated group of Panthers seem to take on a gladiator mentality in a chippy clash between two teams heading to the golf course in mid-April instead of the playoffs. Panthers enforcer Krys Barch set the tone with a drag-out, knockdown brawl with fellow toughie...

Hockey Fights of the Week: 12/9 - 12/15

We've covered the Boston Bruins pretty heavily here on PDL over the last few weeks.

Eric Boulton tunes up George Parros in heavyweight tilt

New York Islanders forward Eric Boulton only stands 6’1″ 225 lbs, but he had no problem taking on Montreal Canadiens forward George Parros, who stands 6’5″ 228 lbs.  This was clearly a staged fight between the two, since it took place so early on, and it’s too bad it had to end so poorly for Parros.  Boulton caught Parros with a couple of big shots at the end of the fight...

Dan Petriw: Sharks circle the Island

I am away from my PC but I just wanted to pass along a quick update and some team news in regards to the Islanders. Kevin Poulin gets the start in goal tonight and Eric Boulton will return to the lineup in place of Peter Regin. Ryan Strome will join the team in Phoenix and he may play Thursday night. I'll have more on that tomorrow. Per the CBA the Isles were at their contract...

Dan Petriw: One step forward, Two steps back

The Islanders will look to get their season out of reverse tonight as they are in Pittsburgh to take on the Penguins. Thomas Vanek, Michael Grabner and Radek Martinek will all return to the lineup tonight. As a result, Aaron Ness, Eric Boulton and for some reason Brock Nelson will be scratched. I’m usually pretty good at reading into these decisions but I really canâ€...

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...

Dan Petriw: Where's the fire?

The Islanders continued their dreadful stretch of play with a 5-2 loss at the hands of the Columbus Blue Jackets last night. The goaltending was still an issue, the defense is still a major issue but I want to talk about another issue lurking within this team; its' heart. When Eric Boulton is your best forward YOU HAVE MAJOR problems. Nobody is hitting, nobody is finishing...
