Isles Forget To Show Up Against Bruins

October 24, 2015

This was a game the Islanders need to quickly forget. As for the Bruins, this was a game that showed some promise in a few players. I’m going to make this short and sweet: the Isles turned the puck over and the Bruins took advantage and capitalized on them. The Islanders maybe played 20 minutes of hockey, the competitiveness wasn’t there and their play one-on-one was nonexistent. They have a…


Hockey from the Blind Side, Another Comeback Win for the Isles and 3 Wins in a Row This Week

The New York Islanders made it 3 wins in a row and 7 out of 8 points at the Barclays Center. In addition, they have scored 14 goals over that 3 game stretch with some secondary scoring returning to the lineup. Jaroslav Halak made his season debut last night as well after Thomas Greiss played quite well during the previous two wins. On Monday, the Islanders rebounded after a rough…

Hockey from the Blind Side, Final Reactions to a Positive Season for the New York Islanders

The “debate” among the fan base of the New York Islanders over how one should “view” this season has been an ongoing one since the Isles are eliminated from the playoffs in game 7 against the Washington Capitals. Basically, the two opposing views over whether this season should be called “successful” or not has been the real center of the debate. Was a first round exit a “successful” season for…

Talk From the 300 Section – An Almost Complete Effort

April 16, 2015

CLICK BELOW TO HEAR GARY’S PODCAST… As Mike Bossy so eloquently put it last night. One down, 15 to go….  A great effort by the Isles last night.  They accomplished what the needed already – get to even when they are home on Sunday. Now – a little practice and to be ready to face a DESPERATE Washington team on Friday, with the chance to go 2-0 for Sunday.  If…


Talk From the 300 Section – A Point is a Point

March 25, 2015

CLICK BELOW TO HEAR GARY’S PODCAST… It may not have been the ultimate result; but a point is better than nothing. It was the first time all season that the Isles did not get two points once they crossed 60 minutes.  Can you believe that? Some thoughts on what I heard throughout the night, and my feelings as we head through a very important week for this hockey club. Please…


Talk From the 300 Section – Tough Loss

March 11, 2015

CLICK BELOW TO HEAR GARY’S PODCAST… No matter how you slice it – it was a difficult 3rd period to watch.  The Isles were the completely dominant team in the first 20, but somehow forgot the last 40. The last regular season game at NVMC of Islanders-Rangers will not go down as a classic in the history books.  It will be a complete disappointment. This is my talk about the…


Hockey from the Blind Side, A Loss in Florida, but Still a Point in the Standings

CLICK BELOW TO HEAR JOHN’S PODCAST… The New York Islanders lost in the shootout 4-3 last night in Florida, but still left the building with a point. While John Tavares, Frans Nielsen and Josh Bailey could not beat Dan Ellis in the shootout, Jonathan Huberdeau managed to get the game winner passed Michal Neuvirth. It was actually Elli’s first win of the season, and he stopped 25 Islander shots in…

Blog: Islanders Options At The Trade Deadline

February 25, 2015

With the trade deadline coming up in the beginning of March, many New York Islanders fans are hoping Islanders General Manager Garth Snow pulls the trigger on a move that could help with the special teams or possibly another backup for Jaroslav Halak. So before I talk about as to who is available and what it would take to get them, let’s take a look at what the Islanders have…


Hockey from the Blind Side, Another Four Game Winning Streak!

February 15, 2015

CLICK BELOW TO HEAR JOHN’S PODCAST… At the NVMC last night, the New York Islanders made it four wins in a row by defeating the Columbus Blue Jackets by the score of 6-3. After having dropped 3 in a row, the Isles have gotten back on track. It hasn’t been “pretty” at times, yet they continue to find ways to win games and collect valuable 2 points. Last night, they,…


22 Skidoo – Escape Detroit with the W

December 19, 2014

As Travis Hamonic said to Shannon Hogan after the game, he (Anders Lee) likes to score those “GREASY” goals. That second goal, confirmed by video review, gave the Islanders the 2-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings.  The victory, the 22nd of the season for the Islanders (Tied with Anaheim and Chicago for the most in the NHL), pushed them to within two points of idle Pittsburgh in the Metro…
