The New York Islanders are back in action tonight as they host the Los Angeles Kings who continue their East Coast swing. Los Angeles, led by Anze Kopitar, have been Kings of the road this season, going an impressive 17-7-2, helping them solidify their spot atop the Pacific Division.

With a win tonight, the Islanders can use the schedule to their advantage and pull away from the Pittsburgh Penguins and New Jersey Devils. The Islanders have one and two games in hand respectively on those two clubs.

New York Islanders Rumours: Okposo, Nielson and Hamonic Unlikely to Move

Islanders Insight's picture

Approaching the Trade Deadline, the New York Islanders are a team of many questions, questions which Bob McKenzie offered some answers to on Wednesday. The three main players of discussion are Travis Hamonic, Kyle Okposo and Frans Nielson. Hamonic requested a trade earlier in the season and Okposo and Nielson are both unrestricted free agents […]

After several disappointing performances, the Islanders look to be back on track with a couple of solid wins.

The playoff race is tighter than ever and each game holds more importance than the previous one. Teams currently in 2nd-7th in the Metropolitan Division all have a shot at the postseason and will be fighting for positioning likely until the last game of the season.

Will the New York Islanders make any trades leading up to the Feb. 29 deadline? While the answer to this question is currently uncertain, Islanders General Manager Garth Snow definitely has several tough decisions to make over the coming weeks.

Kyle Okposo, Frans Nielsen and Matt Martin are three key players, set to come off the books this summer, while Travis Hamonic’s trade request still lingers in the department of “not if, but when.” With the goal of winning a Stanley Cup in mind, the Islanders need these players if they have any plans to achieve what they set out for; however, can they actually risk losing all of these players for nothing on July 1?

An Islanders Fan Says Goodbye To Martin Brodeur

My strongest memory of Martin Brodeur dates back to March 30th, 2003 when I was just 12 years old. I had traveled with a friend and his father to the Meadowlands to see the New York Islanders take on the New Jersey Devils that afternoon. While I knew Brodeur to be one of the best goaltenders in the league, it wasn’t until that day that I truly understood how remarkable he was, and would remain for the length of his career.

The Islanders continued their trend of driving fans crazy by winning in grand fashion in some games, while not showing up in others. What’s hockey without a little drama? With last nights win, the Islanders continue to be on pace to finish the season with 98 points. Playing the percentages, the Isles are currently 4th in the Eastern Conference and third in the Metropolitan division. The difference between 3rd and 9th place however, is minimal, just like last year. There’s no question that the race is going to be tight from here on out, so for any hockey fan it’s an exciting time. So I’m just going to go all over the place and talk about a few different topics that have fans very concerned, some are justified.

Islanders Also Defeat Blue Jackets on Social Media

When left alone, the New York Islanders’ official twitter account will provide pertinent information to its fan base but will not engage in any witty banter, especially with other NHL teams.

However, the Columbus Blue Jackets decided to wake a sleeping dragon before Tuesday’s game at Nationwide Arena. After New York defeated the Blue Jackets in an extended shootout, The Islanders took to social media to win their second match of the night.

In a game highlighted by the spectacular play of Columbus’ rookie goaltender Joonas Korpisalo, the Islanders managed to squeak two points out of the contest as they beat the Blue Jackets 3-2 in a shootout. The Isles remained perfect against their division rival with last night’s win, improving to 4-0 against the Jackets this season.

The Islanders are back in action tonight against another team low in the standings and, normally, fans would all but mail this one in, especially after the beating they gave the Edmonton Oilers Sunday afternoon. However, the Islanders have been about as consistent as my 1996 Nissan Maxima during college. When it ran, it was great. The problem was, sometimes it wouldn’t, which is more or less the problem the Islanders have been going through this year.

The New York Islanders had a much needed laugher yesterday afternoon in Brooklyn against the Edmonton Oilers. While most of the country was waiting for the Super Bowl to commence, Islanders’ fans were treated to football-like numbers as the Islanders cruised to an 8-1 victory over their Pacific Division opponent.

Former Islanders’ 2009 draft pick and current Oiler goalie Anders Nilsson was driven from the game after three first period goals. Johnny Boychuk opened the scoring in his second game back from an upper body injury with a “Johnny Rocket” as he crossed the blue line. The Isles made it a point to just keep putting the puck on net for the remainder of the afternoon.

As John Tavares goes, so do the New York Islanders. With that said, the New York Islanders and their fans will be happy to know that after a mid-season slump, John Tavares’s shot rates have nearly doubled. After falling out of a playoff spot, the Islanders shoved their way back in with an 8-1 win over […]

Fresh off one of their worst losses of the season, the Islanders will look for to salvage their weekend of play this afternoon, when they take on the Edmonton Oilers. Edmonton is also coming off a brutal loss, falling to the Canadiens 5-1 in Montreal on Saturday.

NHL: New York Islanders at Detroit Red Wings

Johnny Boychuk returned Saturday afternoon for the New York Islanders, but a lack of urgency from the team led to a disappointing 5-1 loss. After a hard-fought game this past Thursday against the Washington Capitals, the Islanders seemingly went to Detroit unprepared.
