As passionate New York Islanders fans, we started our journey in earnest back in February 2013 and had one common goal in mind; be one of the leading sources of Islanders news and information on the internet.

We knew we would be facing some stiff competition, not only from competing blogs which had more of a ‘history’ and were clearly established in the market, but from the official site itself.

The New York Islanders began their three game road trip last night in negative fashion, losing 5-2 to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Islanders play summed up in three words: Lack of effort. The Islanders were making lazy plays, they weren’t crashing the net, and the defense certainly didn’t have a good night, as several of the Islanders 5 goals against were a result of sloppy defense throughout the game.

The NHL is on TV and we here at Eyes On Isles have you covered for your viewing pleasure.

The Islanders, winners of two of their last three, take to the road for a swing that includes Toronto and the state of Pennsylvania before earning their first three day break of the season which has now surpassed its quarter mark.

Time to see if Kevin Poulin can handle the number one job with Evgeni Nabokov on injured reserve (speculation is he could miss up to four weeks) and Anders Nilsson just being recalled from Bridgeport to serve as the backup.

The New York Islanders knew what they needed to do. They know the style of play that makes them successful.

Off the heels of a four game road losing streak, they came home to Nassau Coliseum and were one blown third period lead away from a three game winning streak.

Instead of thinking of it in terms of losing five of their last seven, many fans should point to the fact they have won two of their last three. And last night was the most complete effort from start to finish we have seen all season.

Betting on the NY Islanders

Islanders Insight's picture

The 2013/14 season of the NHL is about six weeks old now, although if you like NHL betting it will have started sometime during the late summer – when the outright bets on the various divisions, conferences and the Stanley Cup started being placed with bookmakers. The NY Islanders have been in middling form in the Metropolitan Division schedule, with seven wins and nine defeats so far, leaving them five points behind division leaders the Pittsburgh Penguins. This does not sound particularly promising from a gambling perspective, so is there any point in an Islanders bet this season?

The New York Islanders are set to take on the Detroit Red Wings tonight at Nassau Coliseum following their dis-heartening loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday.

In that game, New York proceeded to give up 3 third period goals to the former Stanley Cup champions in a game where they sat on a two goal lead and were stuck watching as their passiveness was taken advantage of by a team with way too much experience to be lulled to sleep.

On Tuesday, November 12 the National Hockey League’s general managers got together for their annual meeting in Toronto where a number of hot button topics were discussed.

Some will see changes next season and some will not even make it to a vote needed to pass. But it certainly did provide some interesting thoughts among columnists, sports anchors, bloggers and fans.
