With the New York Rangers’ win over the Arizona Coyotes last night, the New York Islanders, for at least one night, find themselves in second place in the Metropolitan Division. Yes, both teams have 82 points apiece.

Islanders Insight’s Top Shelf: 2|26|15

Three trades were made around the NHL over the course of yesterday, none of them involving the New York Islanders. As the trade deadline looms, Islanders fans should expect more of the same silence.

Islanders: Triantaphilisms — 10 Things I Think I Think 2/20/15

It has been a pretty wacky week for the New York Islanders. The Islanders went from defeating the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night, to losing a heartbreaker to the New York Rangers at the Nassau Coliseum on Monday.

Despite Rivalry Success, Islanders Still The Underdog

The Islanders and Rangers face off for the fourth time Monday night. The Isles have owned the Rangers this season going 3-0 against them in three games played. But, with just 26 games remaining in the season, and the Islanders clinging to a two-point lead on Pittsburgh, and a three-point lead on the Rangers, every single game is important, especially inside the division. The crowd...

Islanders-Flyers Preview

When John Tavares went down with a season-ending injury at the Olympics last February, the last-place New York Islanders already were facing an uphill battle to qualify for the playoffs. They're in much better position this February, but the loss of Kyle Okposo undoubtedly has had an effect. The Islanders look to avoid a season-worst fourth consecutive defeat as they begin a three...

Marc DesRosiers-USA TODAY Sports You might recall that the New York Islanders recently announced that they’d be without top winger Kyle Okposo for 6-8 weeks with an “upper body injury,” a typically vague response from a team in regards to an injury. Katie Strang of ESPN New York reports that while the timeline is still the same, the details of the injury are a little scarier...

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...
