Islanders Time To Win Is Now

The New York Islanders just completed a 101 point regular season, their most successful stretch in 31 years, and are now facing the Washington Capitals with a legitimate chance to win their first playoff series in more than 20 years.

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...

Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: The Night Before

Okay, folks, NOW you can breathe a little easier. The Islanders have clinched a playoff spot thanks to the Florida Panthers and still have an opportunity to gain home ice advantage. That’s if they win their last two games and the Capitals lose to the Rangers. All signs though are pointing to a 4/5 match-up with the Capitals getting home ice. But that’s another conversation for...

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.

With the news that New York Islanders defenseman Nick Leddy will miss the next two weeks with an upper-body injury, you know what I’d like to see? I would love to see the Islanders give either Griffin Reinhart or Ryan Pulock a call to the NHL. It’s not really urgent. The Islanders only play four games over their next 12 days, so Leddy isn’t going to miss all that much hockey...
