Islanders Insight’s Top Shelf: First Line Changes Needed

The New York Islanders are currently riding a four-game point streak (3-0-1)—a stretch that has helped ease fans’ minds from the finer points of how the team started the season. Seemingly every game, coach Jack Capuano scratches a different bottom-six forward and replaces that forward with another bottom-six forward in the lineup. If the team […]

Islanders Finally Give Goaltending Run Support

It had been 23 days since the Islanders were able to find the back of the net four times in a single game. That’s nearly a month since the team was able to give their goaltenders the type of goal support to match the effort they’ve had in net. But on Wednesday the Islanders responded […]

Islanders Insight’s Top Shelf: Any Reason For Optimism?

The New York Islanders seemingly lose heartbreaker after heartbreaker (sprinkled with some one-sided affairs) through 20 games. In those 20 games, the Isles have been the victors a grand total of six times. That equates to winning 30 percent of their games at the quarter mark of their regular season. To simply win half of […]

Three Things To Look For When Islanders Visit Los Angeles

For the first time since November 7, the New York Islanders (6-8-4) were victorious after Tuesday night’s 3-2 shootout win in Anaheim.

A quick turnaround — and a long commute through L.A. traffic […]
