New York Islanders Blue v White Game

Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Day 72

Did anyone else hear birds chirping this morning when they woke up? Sure, even at 5:15 AM when my alarm jolted me awake, there just seemed to be a bit more beauty in everything. Maybe that’s what happens after another three-goal margin of victory over the New York Rangers. Be gracious in victory, though, folks. […]

Islanders Insight’s Top Shelf: 1|28|15

The New York Islanders responded to critics and skeptics quite well yesterday, beating the Rangers 4-1 on home ice. There were some who felt the Isles were not good enough on offense without Kyle Okposo, but that idea certainly was not in effect last night. Long Island’s team was in control from the beginning last […]

Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Day 73

And we’re back. Islanders hockey returns tonight at the Old Barn with a bang as the blue and orange welcome the rival Rangers in the friendly confines for the first time this season. I’m contemplating whether or not it would be worth it to look up tickets last minute and try and make the trek […]

Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Day 74

Rejoice, Islanders fans, hockey returns tomorrow midst a blizzard that will most likely be of epic proportion. As epic as a third period in October against the Rangers? Probably not. You will hear these same sentiments in tomorrow’s installment of the countdown, but if you have to leave the house, for whatever reason, please use […]


The Night the Dynasty Almost Died; April 13, 1982

It took 16 consecutive playoff series to produce four straight Stanley Cups. Amazingly, only one of those 16 series went the maximum number of games and the Isles only faced elimination once. The game five elimination game was at the Nassau Coliseum against the Pittsburgh Penguins on April 13th, 1982. The Islanders took a two […]


Islanders Star Kyle Okposo Expected To Miss Six-To-Eight Weeks

Islanders Insight’s Top Shelf: 1|26|15

The New York Islanders were represented well at the 2015 NHL All-Star Game yesterday in Columbus. On one end of the ice, goaltender Jaroslav Halak allowed four goals – tied for the least amongst goaltenders in this high-scoring contest – and made several impressive saves to pick up the ‘W’ in Team Toews’ 17-12 victory […]

NHL All-Star Game Gives Fans a Glimpse of League-Wide Camaraderie

Many of the NHL’s players were teammates at one point or another, be it on Junior, World Junior, Olympic, European professional, or even AHL and NHL squads. Some even grew up in the same town or city. This certainly doesn’t mean everyone is best buds, what happens on the ice often doesn’t stay there, but for […]

Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Day 75

After watching last night’s skill competition, it seems that, if given the proper amount of time, Jaroslav Halak can indeed handle the puck. Or at least shoot it. Then again, maybe he tampered with the pucks. Hey, can I get a PSI reading on the pucks Halak used? We’re a quarter through our countdown, folks […]
