Opportunity Knocks For The Islanders

December 2, 2015

As the New York Islanders take on their rival Rangers tonight at the Barclays Center, the Islanders have been presented with a golden opportunity this month to move up in the standings and not have to worry about just making the playoffs. The Islanders have 13 winnable games and it starts with the Rangers, who have a few injured palyers and are reeling the last couple games. They need to…


Isles Hold On To Beat The Preds

October 16, 2015

The New York Islanders came back to defeat the Nashville Predators by a score of 4-3 despite not playing their best game so far of this short season.

Blog: Q & A With Islanders GM Garth Snow

May 19, 2015

On May 18th 2015, New York Islanders general manager Garth Snow sat down with the members of the Islanders Booster Club for a little Q & A session. The mood was light, the atmosphere was calm, and it felt like a family reunion with no yelling, screaming, or anything else that would ruin the occasion. Despite the early first round exit, the Islanders did record their first +100 point season…


Hello Brooklyn!

September 27, 2014

Isles Talk was there as I came in from Pennsylvania to see the game and take in the Barclays experience. I go to at least 7-10 Islanders games a year while visiting the Prudential Center on occasion. I usually take the Tappan Zee Bridge and eventually get to the Throgs Neck and Long Island,…

Hockey With A (Heavy) Heart: Hurricane Sandy Relief Open Skate

Foremost, Happy Veteran’s Day.  As a former jarhead (once a jarhead, always a jarhead), it was special to be at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum today.  But today wasn’t about veterans as much as it was about helping our neighbors.  Good stuff.  Semper Fidelis. I never wrote and posted a reaction to the Islanders announcing their move to Brooklyn in 2015.  I am a fickle sort of fellow to say the…
