Islanders Insight’s Top Shelf: 1|28|15

The New York Islanders responded to critics and skeptics quite well yesterday, beating the Rangers 4-1 on home ice. There were some who felt the Isles were not good enough on offense without Kyle Okposo, but that idea certainly was not in effect last night. Long Island’s team was in control from the beginning last night, which is a very exciting thing to say after a game played...

The New York Islanders are 31-14-1 (63 pts) through their first 43 games of the season; 15-2 against Metro Division competition—a 9-0 record at home against divisional play. Then there’s: 4th in GF, 21st GA, 14th on the PP, and a 21st ranked PK unit.  Those are the Islanders in the most general of nutshells. But what’s lost in the shuffle (and amid the inexorable anxiety...

Islanders Tavares’ Shines: Top Shelf 1/10/15

The New York Islanders, if you are truly judging objectively, did not break out of their recent malaise last night in Newark, New Jersey as much as they were rescued by a true superstar performance from their captain, John Tavares. After a first period that could only be explained one way: zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz – which is quite predictable when these two teams get together – the...

Captain Clutch Comes Through; Islanders Slay Devils

TONIGHT’S RECAP We may have to nickname this team the cardiac kids. It took nearly 64 minutes, but “Overtime is Isles time.” The Isles do it again in extra time, beating the Devils 3-2 in OT. After the first period and a half you kind of had that “oh boy, here we go again” feeling. They weren’t skating, they looked tired, and it could have easily led to lead to a loss...

Islanders Top Shelf: 1/7/15

That wasn’t exactly what the Islanders or their fans were hoping for after falling to the Oilers 5-2 on Sunday. The Islanders fell 3-2 in what could be considered the worst game they’ve played through 40 games.

Is the Josh Bailey Experiment Over?

Islander centerpiece John Tavares and winger Kyle Okposo have seen a few different looks this season as coach Jack Capuano tries to find the right fit for the first line. First it was Corey Conacher, who many thought had a great camp and could be the missing piece on that top line. However, that didn’t last long as he was sent to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers where he has just eight...
