The Islanders went into Montreal Thursday night and threw a serious wrench into the Canadiens chances of earning home-ice advantage in the playoffs as they blanked the hosts 2-0.

Game Preview: Islanders Against the Canadiens

The Islanders head into Montreal to continue to play out the string of this disappointing season as the Canadiens have everything in the world to play for. Translation, the guys in white could be in for an ugly night.

Rare encounter between Blackhawks and Canadiens

As the end of the regular season approaches, the Blackhawks (45-19-15) host the Montreal Canadiens (45-27-7), the Eastern Conference’s number 3. Still without their two biggest stars, Chicago still managed to win against the West’s leaders St Louis Blues on Sunday, while the Habs ar on a 2-game win streak after defeating the Ottawa Senators and the Detroit Red Wings.

 

These two teams only faced each other once in the season, an OT win for the Canadiens, in Montreal, back in January. The Hawks will want to get even with a so...

Where Are They Now? Mariusz Czerkawski

Today we look back at an individual who was nothing but a consistent scorer and a fan favorite during his 6 seasons on Long Island. Mariusz Czerkawski was part of the New York Islanders from 1997-2002 and then again during the 2003-2004 season.

To P.K. or Not to P.K.? The Subban Question

As another Islander season draws closer to an ending, it’s never too early to start thinking about the future (it’s what we do best on Long Island). Free agency will come and go and big-ticket names will be shuffled around in trades. And the one name hanging out there that appears ripe for the taking, Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban, just so happens to make a heck of a lot of sense for the team in Nassau.

Blackhawks face the Habs in Montréal on Saturday

The Chicago Blackhawks will face another Original Six team on Saturday night as they play the Canadiens at the Bell Centre in Montréal.

Last year, the Canadiens completely missed the playoffs and languished near the bottom of the league for most of the shortened season. This year, the team has turned around completely: with a 25-15-5 record and 55 points, they're sitting at third in the Atlantic division. They have a strong penalty kill - 3rd best in the league, at 86.3%.

Additionally, eight Habs will be representing their home country in the Olympics: Carey Price and P.K. Subban for Canada; Andrei Markov and Alexei Emelin for Russia; Max Pacioretty for the U.S....

Postgame 11/10: Islanders @ Canadiens

The New York Islanders lose to the Montreal Canadiens for their 4th loss in a row.

Isles Visit Montreal Looking To Break Losing Streak

New York’s struggles haven’t been confined to the current trip. Despite beating a good Boston team at home last week, the Isles are 3-6-1 in their last ten. This has dropped them from second in the division to fifth, and they’ve fallen to 11th in the conference. (Photo credit: kwong yee cheng/flikr)

In this context, these two points loom a bit larger. And, the Islanders will have to earn the win without newly acquired Thomas Vanek who was hurt in last night’s loss to the Blue Jackets in Columbus.

Isles Playoff-Push Continues Tonight In Boston

The New York Islanders will take on the Boston Bruins at 7pm at the TD Garden in Boston. The Islanders (20-16-4) are looking to continue their success in the most serious playoff push the team has had in years, going 7-1-1 in their last 9 games.

Despite their recent point streak that has carried the Isles into the top 8 in the East, the Bruins (26-9-4) have been no walk in the park for the New York club this season. The Northeast Division leaders have won both meetings between the two this season and have outscored the Isles 8-3. (Photo Credit: Hazboy/Flickr)

Two Habs Showdowns to reveal Caps ability, for better or worse

The Washington Capitals will play the Montreal Canadiens twice in the span of 11 days in April. Both of the games are in Montreal.

This is the kind of thing that happens when your season schedule gets thrown together. Like they'd say in Montreal, c'est la vie.

But, if anything, the games should be a good measure of how far the Caps have come this season.

Any time the team goes 8-1-1 is good, but check those last 10 games out. There aren't many playoff teams in that stretch. 

That begs the question--how good are these Caps, really?

It's fair to say they're neither the team that started 2-8-1, nor are they a team that could maintai...
