Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Days 47 & 46

I can only ask for your forgiveness. Sunday proved to be quite a busy day as I was in attendance at the Coliseum as the Islanders were dismantled by the Canucks.

Islanders Insight’s Top Shelf: 2|23|15

Never mind the power[less] play that went 0-for-5  in a 4-0 loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday. Last night, it was the New York Islanders’ other special teams unit handing the opposition two points. At this point, we’re all broken records. The Islanders penalty kill is bad. Even on a night where the Islanders took only three penalties – two on rookie Kael Mouillierat...

The Locker: Donovan Hash-Tagging

Islanders defenseman Matt Donovan doesn’t get to play all that much this season, serving as the team’s sixth (and sometimes seventh) man in a rotation that only gets listed on head coach Jack Capuano’s official lineup sheet in case of injury or illness.

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. It was an overall brutal game for the entire team, with several costly errors leading to all of the Canucks goals on the night. Whether it was the absence of Lubomir Visnovsky...

Islanders Matt Donovan Preaches Restraint

Professional athletes on social media are always a trip. They seem to have much more fun than the average fan does, that’s for sure. Some are much more active than others, but most have the rules of posting and running down pat. Matt Donovan has not been very active on Twitter since joining but he really scores on this tweet, sent on New Year’s Day after practicing with his...
