Islanders Insight's picture

It wasn’t pretty, but they got it done. The New York Islanders were outplayed, and at times out-muscled, but they found a way to win their fourth game of their ongoing road trip. Kevin Poulin came up big last night, as he looked like a veteran, with his coolness late in the game while Tampa […]

The Edmonton Oilers made headlines by trading former no. 14 overall draft pick G Devan Dubnyk to the Nashville Predators for F Matt Hendricks, then turning around and sending a third round […]

All good things must come to an end. On the verge of a franchise-record tying 8th consecutive win on the road, the New York Islanders produced a lackluster effort at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida.
