Islanders Showing Faith In Roster During Free Agency

When free agency began on Wednesday, July 1st, the New York Islanders weren’t expected to make any drastic moves, in spite of a first round defeat at the hands of the Washington Capitals in last season’s opening playoff round. The Isles amassed over 100 points for the first time in over 30 years and placed fourth in the National Hockey League in goals per game (2.99), trailing...

Islanders Insight Top Shelf: Making a List, Checking it Twice: 7/3/15

The New York Islanders offseason checklist is getting smaller two days after the start of free agency. Personally, this speaks to General Manager Garth Snow‘s ability not to sign players quickly, but to limit the amount of offseason moves he needs to make. This allows for coaches to get familiar with the roster (which will be mostly the same) and for the players to be comfortable...

Do the New York Islanders have the best fourth line in hockey?

Fans call them them the bash brothers, opponents hate to play against them, and overall they energize the crowd and their teammates with their bone crushing hits. The New York Islanders line of Matt Martin, Cal Clutterbuck, and Casey Cizikas make up one of the best fourth lines not only in the playoffs, but the entire […] The post Do the New York Islanders have the best fourth...

Changes on the Horizon For The Islanders In Game 3

Friday night’s game is just that, Friday night’s game. The Islanders must learn from it and move on. It was about more than broken sticks. It was about puck management, clearing the zone, and taking advantage of an inexperienced goalie. The Islanders did not do much of any of those. Coach Jack Capuano, who is usually not that demonstrative behind the bench, nearly blew a gasket...

Despite Series Lead, Islanders Have Issues To Fix In Game 2

The Islanders stepped it up Wednesday night in Game 1. They came to play and did not take their foot of the gas. They did not let up when they had the lead, as they have so many times before. They took the play to Washington and made the Capitals make mistakes. However, the Islanders know they have to not only come out with the same intensity, but they need to fix the errors that...

Leddy Leading The Way For Islanders

On October 4th, when Islanders general manger Garth Snow acquired defenseman Nick Leddy and Johnny Boychuk, he knew that these guys would not only bring stability to the blue line, but playoff experience to a young locker room. Now that the postseason is upon us, the Islanders locker room, filled with players who have limited playoff experience, will rely heavily on these two...

With a Boston Bruins loss last night in Florida, the Islanders clinched their first playoff berth since the truncated 2013 season. It probably wasn’t how the team drew it up, but the Isles will certainly be thrilled to finally have a ticket to the postseason. “There’s a lot at stake this time of year,” Travis Hamonic told Arthur Staple of Newsday. “We’re confident in...

No Matt Martin or Frans Nielsen  as the Islanders took their bus trip to Philadelphia yesterday (If you haven’t seen the Islanders’ tweet about it, here it is) with a chance to clinch a playoff spot tonight.

Islanders Country wakes up this morning pondering another loss. This time in the form of a 3-1 defeat to the Montreal Canadiens. Again,it’s not fair to say the Islanders were dominated. It could have very easily been a 2-1 game, when you consider the Habs third goal was a late empty netter. The game could have also been tied had Matt Martin gotten a better handle on a pass he received...
