Islanders Comeback Hopes Dashed By Dallas In OT

TONIGHT’S RECAP You can put this one in the “well, it could have been worse” column. The Isles tie it in the last two seconds of regulation, but lose a tough one to the Stars in overtime, 3-2. For two periods, the Islanders battled and had almost everything go their way. Until the third period. […]

Anders Lee Making a Case for Calder Trophy

At the beginning of the season, many people had Jonathan Drouin and Aaron Ekblad as favorites to win the Calder trophy. And while at least one of those players should still be considered a candidate, Anders Lee, 24, of our very own New York Islanders has given himself a chance as well. At the start […]

New York Islanders v New Jersey Devils

Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Day 39

Have your heads stopped spinning from yesterday’s trade deadline? Never would I think to have seen the Islanders so active. I’d say most fans are used to all the other teams wheeling and dealing while the Islanders would sit by the wayside and watch the fireworks. As fans say goodbye to one goalie today in Chad […]

Islanders Insight’s Top Shelf: 3|3|15

The trade deadline left an impact around the NHL, and the Islanders made their own splash, acquiring Michal Neuvirth and Tyler Kennedy. The team also sent Cory Conacher to Vancouver, and shipped G David Leggio to Arizona. While trades are important, New York as a team needs to focus on tonight’s game against the Dallas […]

Boston Bruins v San Jose Sharks

Garth Snow and Islanders Successful on Deadline Day

What a difference a year makes, huh? This time last year, fans were frustrated with Garth Snow‘s lackluster return for LW Thomas Vanek, and analysts referred to the team as a “tire fire” with a questionable front office. This year, however, the Islanders were buyers, and made solid improvements to the team as we head […]

John Tavares and the Pursuit of the Art Ross Trophy

For the next 18 games, John Tavares’ number one goal will be to win hockey games. There’s a very good chance that if a reporter even mutters the word “Art Ross Trophy” to him, the trophy given annually to the NHL leader in points, he’ll stare back at said reporter blankly, almost in shock that […]

New York Islanders v New York Rangers

Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Day 40

I’m not sure if I can ever recall so many Islanders fans rooting for the Philadelphia Flyers, but one division rival helped the Islanders immensely Saturday, defeating the Rangers, keeping them at the top of the Metropolitan. However, a lackluster performance against the Hurricanes on Saturday is not exactly comforting for the Islanders either. With […]

Islanders Insight’s Top Shelf: 3|2|15

Happy NHL Trade Deadline Day! Although, this year’s party has kicked off a little bit early… While several names had been moved in the weeks leading up to the March 2 deadline, none were of the same magnitude as yesterday’s trade involving the New York Rangers and the Arizona Coyotes. On Monday afternoon, the Rangers acquired […]


Rangers Make Huge Move, Should Garth Snow React?

As I am sure you know by now, the New York Rangers have acquired Keith Yandle, defensive prospect Chris Summers, and a 2015 4th round pick from the Arizona Coyotes. In exchange, the Rangers sent one of their top prospects, Anthony Duclair, defenseman John Moore, 2016’s first round pick and a second round pick this […]

Monster Month of March May Determine Metro Winner

As we enter the last full month of regular season hockey, the Metro Division is up for grabs. Any team that is not from New Jersey, Carolina, or Columbus could win this thing. Even though the Islanders faltered against an inferior Hurricanes team Saturday night, there are still plenty of games to go, and anything […]

Islanders Prospects Getting Ready For Second Season

If you were looking for huge numbers from the New York Islanders prospects then Saturday night was not your night. But what you did get was them and their teams improving their playoff prospects or discovering their futures. No prospect earned any stars but given what some of the prospects did win then odds are […]

Chicago Blackhawks v New York Islanders

Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Day 41

I sometimes am astounded by the sheer coincidental timing of events compared to this countdown. With 41 days to go until the final regular season game at the Nassau Coliseum, we take a look at the man who lost a shutout with 20 seconds left Friday night…and also set a new franchise record with his […]

Islanders Get Blown Away By Hurricane

The New York Islanders might still win the Metropolitan division this year. They also might lose it by a point or two. If the latter scenario plays out, they will look back to this game as one they let slip from their grasp. There are no sure things in today’s NHL. No easy wins. No […]
