The Islanders are set to kick off the first game of their 5 game road trip tonight in Denver, against the Colorado Avalanche. Colorado is currently riding a four game point streak, and will look to extend it tonight.

Halloween Comes Early: Isles Dress As Jekyll & Hyde

Gonna keep this short because obviously no one wants to read a novel after a brutal loss like that.

Who Has Had the Most Underrated Start to the Season?

These two players in particular have captured my attention the most this season.

Isles Start Strong, Fail To Finish In Pittsburgh

The Penguins beat the Islanders 3-1 behind strong special teams play. Patric Hornqvist had 2 goals including an empty netter, and added an assist. Penguins star Evgeni Malkin had the other Pittsburgh goal and also had a helper on Hornqvist’s first of the game.

The Islanders, who lost for the first time all season, started the game strong. New York jumped out to a 1-0 lead on a goal by Thomas Hickey in the first.

Undefeated Isles Prepare To Face The Penguins

The New York Islanders (4-0-0) will look to continue their winning ways tonight when they visit another Metropolitan Division rival, the Pittsburgh Penguins (2-1-0) at the Consol Energy Center.

The Penguins are going to look to come out strong from the gate after a heartbreaking loss to the Dallas Stars 3-2 on Thursday night. The Pens were headed to overtime with the Stars, but Tyler Seguin would score a power play goal with only 3 seconds remaining on the clock while Sidney Crosby sat in the penalty box.

A tough loss to swallow will likely have Crosby and Co. fired up and ready to go on home ice from the second the puck is dropped.

Post-Game Reaction 10.16.14 - Fish Sticks Anyone?

For the first time, in a long time, fish sticks don't sound that bad! And with the revival of the Stan Fischler Fisherman Jersey this past week, it seems only fitting that the Islanders drowned the Sharks in a Shootout spectacular that saw Captain Tavares bait Alex Stay-Lock with multiple hooks, lines and the eventual backhand sinker to seal the victory and keep the Islanders afloat in unbeaten waters.

Isles Wash The Rags At The Garden

As the “Lets Go Islanders” chants rained down from the Madison Square Garden rafters, while the horn sounded on an entertaining game, the Rangers’ Ryan Malone showed the only fight the Rangers could muster in the 3rd period by giving a couple of cheap shots to Brian Strait. Too little too late, as the Islanders took the first matchup of the season against their rivals in an impressive 6-3 victory.

The Last Hurrah at Nassau Coliseum Begins

Well Islander fans, this is it. This is the last time the Islanders will ever be opening up at Nassau Coliseum.

Islanders Topple Hurricanes 5-3 to Open Season

After a summer of new acquisitions throughout the lineup, it was second-year player Brock Nelson who delivered the biggest moments for the Islanders in their 5-3 opening night victory in Carolina.
