Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Day 71

For the first time in my life (23 years), I think this might be the first time I’m going to the Coliseum on a Thursday night and expecting a sellout against a team not named the Rangers. And while Bruins fans travel well, they will most likely be muted amongst a sea of blue and orange fanatics. I’ll be the guy with the beard and the fisherman jersey with my best friend, Nick...

New York Islanders: there are no “statement games”

For what seems so long ago, before the Islanders embarked on a home and home, back-to-back series against the Pittsburgh Penguins, we explored the idea of Islanders trying to win “statement games.” The Islanders were one of the best teams in the league through the first 18 games, winning 12 and losing six. The emergence of their youngsters, and strong play by the veteran additions...

Mikhail Grabovski Grabs Top Line Role, Tickles The Twine In His Return

With Kyle Okposo basically out for the rest of the season big questions about what will happen in the Isles’ top six loom large. In the past no one would have cared at all beyond when Okie was getting back into the lineup, but 2015 is a new year and the Isles offense is one of the best in the league posting a heady 3.2 goals per game, good for second in the NHL. So now that question...

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...

Why the Islanders can survive without Kyle Okposo

The word out of New York Islanders camp coming out of All-Star weekend isn’t great.  Forward Kyle Okposo, second-leading scorer on the team, will miss the next 6-8 weeks with an upper body injury. The timing of everything is a bit off: he played 19:33 in a 7-4 win over Philadelphia and then participated in a full practice last Tuesday. Head coach Jack Capuano didn’t reveal...

While it feels like Kyle Okposo has scored 83 goals on Marc-Andre Fleury in his career, with 83 days left until the final regular season...
