JAROSLAV HALAK NEWS

Islanders Insight’s Top Shelf: 1|26|15

The New York Islanders were represented well at the 2015 NHL All-Star Game yesterday in Columbus. On one end of the ice, goaltender Jaroslav Halak allowed four goals – tied for the least amongst goaltenders in this high-scoring contest – and made several impressive saves to pick up the ‘W’ in Team Toews’ 17-12 victory over Team Foligno. On the other end of the ice was Halak’s...

Islanders Find Their Missing Piece(s)

The NHL’s All-Star break is an opportunity for reflection and for the Islanders one needn’t look further than Garth Snow’s acquisitions of Johnny Boychuk and Nick Leddy as huge keys to their first-half success.  If anyone kept to their NHL “Things-To-Do-In-The-Offseason” list, it was the Isles GM.

For the New York Islanders, these five days should be used as a time to reflect, and recharge the batteries for the final stretch of the 2014-15 season.

Islanders Need to ‘Backup’ Their Winning Ways

There’s nothing remiss in saying that the New York Islanders have a goaltending issue to remedy. It’s not a problem, but it’s an issue that can become one in relative short order. Backup goaltender and former Boston Bruin Chad Johnson is not living up to his expectations, much to the dismay of all those involved. There’s nothing salvageable from his play at the moment, with...

Islanders Ground Flyers 7-4 Heading Into Break

TONIGHT’S RECAP To analyze the first period statistically, you would think the Flyers would be the ones who jumped out to a 2-0 lead at the intermission. Philadelphia led in shots, attempts and faceoffs and had some nice runs of play in the offensive zone. But New York would be the ones to capitalize on their opportunities. Michael Grabner got things going when he took a delicious...
