Islanders Weather Storm and Hold Off Hurricanes.

Islanders Weather Storm and Hold Off Hurricanes.

Mandatory Credit: James Guillory-USA TODAY SportsBoy these Islanders sure like to provide excitement. Even games that look like blowouts can be turned into nail biters.

That’s just what happened tonight.

The Isles came out of the gate like a house on fire. Before the 8 minute mark of the 1st period, the Islanders had a 4-0 lead. If you’re thinking Kyle Okposo or Michael Grabner were involved, you’d be incorrect.

The scoring came from the…

New York Islanders Op/Ed : Bailing on Bailey

Jon Zella with an opinion piece : Do Isles Bail on Bailey? #isles

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Fans cannot expect every draft pick to pan out. Even more so, it is harder to realize when a player is a bust, especially a player like Josh Bailey, who, when he is on his game, can be a positive factor. However, for me, it appears the Islanders have made a mistake in signing him to a 5-year contract that gives him 3.3M per season.

Despite having some good hands from…

NHL TV Schedule : Week Of March 24

The New York Islanders take to the road this week for a short trip down south as the NHL schedule rolls to its 2013-14 conclusion.

Carolina and Tampa are on the agenda with a home match against the New Jersey Devils to follow on Saturday. Only 4 games remain on the slate at Nassau Coliseum and with the playoffs just about officially out of the picture, it’s all about development from here on.

FREEEEEEEEDOMMMMMMM!! Mandatory Credit: Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

It was a short-lived marriage, but one filled with animosity, as Isles’ fans suffered through an era of a jersey arguably worse than the fisherman. The era, however, has finally come to a close.

Yesterday afternoon, the New York Islanders donned the black, orange, blue, grey jerseys for the 24th time and the final time. As the…

The hits just keep on coming, figuratively, for the New York Islanders this season.

Islanders

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Mired in a disappointing season both on the ice and in the front office, news yesterday that Kyle Okposo and Lubomir Visnovsky are both injured and considered ‘day to day’ only adds more angst to a tired and frustrated fan-base as we wind down the 2013-14 schedule.

The status of both…

New York Islanders Injury Woes Continue #isles

The New York Islanders just cannot catch a break. With injuries to superstar center John Tavares and speedster Michael Grabner already depleting the forward reserves and youngsters all over the lineup, two more crucial players were reported injured today.

The Islanders are on spring break, as the team enjoys a nice 5 day break. The temporary absence couldn’t have arrived at a better time, as the Islanders were blown out in embarrassing fashion.

A 6-0 loss was sour, especially with the lack-luster goaltending. Anders Nilsson struggled to say the least, letting up 6 goals on 24 shots. He has been inconsistent since his…

Is Reimer really a possibility? Top Shelf : Islanders Daily 3/20/14 #isles

The New York Islanders are in the midst of a disappointing season to say the least. They are also on an extended four day break from games, coming off possibly their worst loss of the season, a 6-0 defeat at the hands of the Minnesota Wild.
