Okposo So Good

I've always been a huge Peyton Manning fan and thought he was the G.O.A.T. before last night. Even though he didn't play well, it was great to see him win a second Super Bowl. I'm glad he said was going to have a bunch of beers after the game as well, although he should pick something better than Budweiser. Wait, I'm supposed to talk about hockey here. Whoops... The weekend had...

Islanders Insight’s Top Shelf: 2/7/16

Johnny Boychuk returned Saturday afternoon for the New York Islanders, but a lack of urgency from the team led to a disappointing 5-1 loss. After a hard-fought game this past Thursday against the Washington Capitals, the Islanders seemingly went to Detroit unprepared.

Oilers-Islanders Preview

Although John Tavares can sympathize with the pressure and expectations foisted on phenom Connor McDavid, their teams are in far different positions. Tavares is trying to help the New York Islanders get back into the playoff picture Sunday against the highly touted rookie and the last-place Edmonton Oilers. Expectations were high when Tavares was selected first overall at age...

Islanders Get Their Wings Clipped in Detroit

Islanders-Red Wings Preview

The Detroit Red Wings' most recent win came against the New York Islanders in their final game before the All-Star break. Back-to-back road losses followed, but the start of a five-game homestand might not provide much relief.

Islanders Insight’s Top Shelf: 2/5/16

In a gritty, commendable effort, the Islanders fell just short last night against the league-leading Washington Capitals. Late, preventable goals eventually did the Isles in, as Jaroslav Halak let in two stoppable shots that his team ultimately could not come back from. The game was close from the beginning, with momentum neutral throughout a majority of the three periods. The shots...

Late Period Goals Too Much For Islanders To Overcome

If the Islanders showed one thing tonight, it’s that they can absolutely keep up with the league’s best. Unfortunately, silly mistakes are still the Islanders’ undoing.

Just under two minutes into the game, the Isles used the...
