Islanders Prospects Update: Playoff Edition: Dal Colle Shines

There is no real need to explain why we say “Win or Go Home” for the New York Islanders prospects. We started the season covering twelve prospects in North America but as we started both the NCAA Tournament and Canadian junior playoffs, that number got smaller on Friday night. That is why every single game becomes more and more important with each passing day. This time of the...

Ducks-Islanders Preview

John Tavares has led the New York Islanders toward the top of the Eastern Conference with one of the best seasons of his career, but as his scoring has slowed so has his team's success. The Anaheim Ducks failed to stop Tavares in their only matchup with the Islanders this season, but few teams are having trouble slowing New York down heading into Saturday's matchup at Nassau Coliseum...

Islanders: Triantaphilisms — 10 Things I Think I Think 3/27/15

Admittedly, the play of the New York Islanders should be a little bit concerning. No, I didn’t say “panic.” I never say “panic,” but the Islanders aren’t looking like the same team that was so dominant through February. They look lost, like they’re in dire need of somebody, anybody, to step up and right the ship. And let’s face it. The Islanders could start by putting...

Islanders Low Risk – High Reward On Motte

Forgive me but I have had quite the laugh watching how so many are making such a big deal over the New York Islanders signing one Connor James Motte, who until last week, was playing goal at Ferris State of the WCHA. Please just relax and realize that this is smart signing by the Islanders irregardless of if Motte even suits up for the Islanders or not. You want to talk about Motte...

Islanders Insight’s Top Shelf: 3|27|15

The Islanders were outplayed for two periods, and those two periods proved to be enough for the Los Angeles Kings, who won the game by a score of 3-2 last night. The Isles had flashes of dominance, but the team ultimately failed to establish a consistent pressure, which hurt them as the game came closer to its end. Again, Jaroslav Halak played a solid game, but doesn’t get a win...

Islanders Inability To Clear Puck Costs Them Win

Tonight’s Recap If the Islanders want to show they can play with the best, they have a funny way of showing it. After a playoff-like second period, featuring hitting and nastiness, as well as scoring by both teams, the Isles did not show up for the third. Their lethargic and lazy play led to a 3-2 loss on Thursday night, as the Isles continue to limp toward the finish line. Early...

John Tavares Commits Grand Larceny, Swipes Drew Doughty’s Stick

Sticks are rather imperative to the game of hockey therefore someone without a stick would likely be at a severe disadvantage. John Tavares is a smart man and realizes this concept, thus prompting him to swipe the stick of Kings defenseman Drew Doughty.

Islanders Travis Hamonic: Defenseman Evolved

Travis Hamonic has been having the best season of his career this year known as a shutdown defenseman for the New York Islanders, but his play has indicated he is much more than that. Hamonic has blossomed into a two-way defender for the Islanders, contributing on both ends of the ice. When the Islanders play the Pittsburgh Penguins, Hamonic is on the ice whenever Sydney Crosby is...

For Once, The Islanders Need To Look Behind Them

Sports is about winning and being the best. It’s about competition, camaraderie and enjoyment, but most of all it’s about winning and being número uno. For the Islanders however, perhaps finishing second is not all that bad. Usually this time of year you want your team to look up in the standings. You want them to catch whomever is in front of them. With just eight games left...

Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Day 19

As the offense continues to sputter, the Islanders have quite the home test tonight against the defending Stanley Cup Champions who, like they normally do, are getting awfully hot at the right time of year. I’ll be in section 331 with the missus and a dear college friend who will be experiencing his FIRST Islanders game tonight. Ever. Hopefully those in attendance help make it...

Islanders Insight’s Top Shelf: 3|26|15

The New York Islanders made an interesting move yesterday, adding some goaltending depth to the organization with the signing of C.J. Motte, a Ferris State standout and collegiate free agent. Motte, 23, is the school’s all-time wins leader (66 wins) after spending the last four years with Ferris. A two-time Richter Award and 2013-14 Hobey Baker Award finalist, Motte posted a ...

Kings-Islanders Preview

The New York Islanders are almost certainly a playoff team despite a recent slump, and Jonathan Quick thinks the Los Angeles Kings are as well. Right now, the standings disagree with him. Quick will try to help the reigning Stanley Cup champions continue their postseason push as they hit the midpoint of their five-game road trip Thursday night against the Islanders. New York (44...

Islanders All Bark and No Bite at the Moment

The New York Islanders offense is on the downtick. You don’t have to look very far to establish that fact and you needn’t fear reproach from those who watch hockey diligently. The Islanders offense has dried up and it’s time to ask some questions as to why. With low-scoring games and consecutive losses comes the doubt and subsequent environment for such acerbic statements...

Islanders Drop Point To Wild, Keep Pace.

Tonight’s Recap The New York Islanders (44-25-4) looked to build on a 3-0 win over the New Jersey Devils against the Minnesota Wild (41-25-7) last night at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Pat LaFontaine was honored by the team prior to the game and the speedster seemed to rub off on the Isles early as they came out and quickly took the first seven shots of the game. Over...

In a game that saw a dramatic change of momentum, the Minnesota Wild managed to come back from a deficit and defeat the Islanders 2-1 in a shootout. The Isles greatly outplayed Minnesota in the opening stanza, but as the game went on, the Wild played with more energy (despite having played two games in the previous three nights), and that energy got them to the extra frame, where...

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. Halak, of course, is the starter. His 3-0 shutout of the New Jersey Devils last Tuesday has Isles fans dreaming of more playing time for...

Islanders Prospects Enjoy Last Day

The final day of the Canadian junior regular season still offered a tiny bit of drama for the Islander prospects. The three leagues only had two playoff seedings to be decided but when only 10 teams out of 58 fail to make the playoffs then it should come as a surprise. The NCAA also unveiled their 16 teams invited to the Hockey tournament and that too lacked any surprises. NCAA Field...
