The New York Islanders defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 in a shootout tonight at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. They weren’t facing a team that is in direct contact with them in the standing, they allowed a division rival to earn a point, and they didn’t post a ROW result; yet, this may have […]

Hopefully you folks are not getting as tired of this countdown as Colin McDonald is of going back and forth between Long Island and Bridgeport.

Yesterday was not the best day-off for the New York Islanders.

One day after Long Island’s hockey team dropped their third straight game, a 4-2 loss to the Florida Panthers, both the New York Rangers and the Pittsburgh Penguins found themselves in the win-column, making strides towards overtaking the Islanders for first place in the Metropolitan Division.

Actually, the Penguins did pass the Islanders with a 2-0 win over the Edmonton Oilers (thanks, Edmonton), but it’s the Rangers that closed the gap even further, pulling within one point of the now second-place Isles with a 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins.

The New York Islanders did something today that I have never seen before, and frankly did not know was possible: both recalled and sent down Colin McDonald on the same day before 1pm.   #Isles Transaction: Colin McDonald has been recalled from @TheSoundTigers on emergency conditions. — New York Islanders (@NYIslanders) February 4, 2015 #Isles Transaction: […]

For all my Islanders fans that were born after 1985 (I was 1991, myself), can you tell me who this is?

George Richards covers the Florida Panthers for the Miami Herald and was at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum for the final time last night watching his team defeat the New York Islanders 4-2. Richards spoke fondly of the old barn on Hempstead Turnpike, echoing Bill Torrey’s comment to him of “It’s a great place to watch a hockey game”. Richards followed with “Couldn’t agree more, best sight lines for my money”.

That all goes by the wayside in September as Nassau County politics doomed everything the site the building currently is on could have been and instead let the only professional sports team Long Island has ever known to fly the coop to Brooklyn and Barclays Center.

24 Nov 1995: New York Islanders players look on during a game against the Buffalo Sabres at Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo, New York.

The Fisherman jersey made its return to the Coliseum last night, and it brought back old feelings of frustration. The Islanders were sloppy in last night’s 4-2 loss to the Florida Panthers, a team that had only one win in its last eight games prior to their latest game.

TONIGHT’S RECAP

Tonight, the Islanders wore the “Fisherman” jersey for one last time, during the pregame skate. And they played most of the game like it was 1995 all over again.

Islanders “Other” Logo Stirs Debate Among Fans

Stop me if you have heard this before:

“We want fishsticks!”
“That logo is ridiculous! It looks like Stan Fischler.”
“Trust the Gorton’s Fisherman.”

I can go on and on about the derisive chants Islander fans heard starting in the Summer of 1995. If you lived through it, like many fans of a certain age did, you likely have heard these complaints. But, there is a debate, clearly based on age, about how bad this logo really is.

Top Five Goals In The Career Of John Tavares

Pittsburgh Penguins v New York Islanders

On June 26, 2009, General Manager Garth Snow walked up to the draft podium in Montreal. He had the first overall pick of the 47th NHL Entry Draft, and a pretty big decision to make. In the years leading up to this draft, talk was dominated by a young hockey player named John Tavares, who received “exceptional status” from the Ontario Hockey League at the age of 14, allowing him to enter the league a year younger than the normal age.
