The final Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum home stand is now upon you. These next four games are the last of its kind for the Uniondale arena, home to four Stanley Cup championships and countless memories that only four decades of hockey can engender.

Neuvirth’s Ability to Spell Halak Will Be Key to Islanders’ Success

Jack Capuano’s management of the New York Islanders’ two goaltenders, Jaroslav Halak and Michal Neuvirth, over these last nine games will be critical in determining the Isles’ playoff position and ultimately their overall playoff success.

With the conclusion of a very busy trade deadline, the National Hockey League has officially entered the final stretch of the 2014-15 regular season.

The trade deadline has come and gone in 2015 and we’re left with a flurry of moves that mostly didn’t matter.
