Islanders cruise past the Red Wings

January 13, 2010

Rob Schremp had two goals

UNIONDALE, N.Y. — The New York Islanders and Detroit Red Wings both returned East after successful western trips.

Only the host Islanders brought their game back with them.

Rob Schremp posted his first two-goal game in the NHL, and Dwayne Roloson earned perhaps the easiest shutout of his career in New York’s 6-0 victory over the lifeless Red Wings on Tuesday night.

Shootout in the Desert

January 10, 2010

Matt Moulson beats Jason LaBarbera for the game-winner in the shootout

In one of the strangest games of the season, the Islanders won the game 5-4 in their fourth shootout in the past 7 games. Matt Moulson nabbed the second point for the Islanders after going top shelf to end a 2-2 stalemate in the sixth round.

For all the drama the shootout normally brings,  however, it was pretty anticlimactic compared to what happened in regulation, particularly the second period.

Revenge is sweet

UNIONDALE, N.Y. — For one night, the New York Rangers‘ roster shake up worked.

Playing without benched veterans Wade Redden and Ales Kotalik, the Rangers responded to coach John Tortorella’s heavy hand and broke out of their offensive woes.

Ryan Callahan had two goals and two assists, and Henrik Lundqvist made 35 saves to lift the Rangers to a 5-2 victory over the Islanders on Thursday night that snapped a five-game losing streak (0-3-2) and gave them a split of the home-and-home series.

Tortorella left screaming as Islanders defeat Rangers, again.

Roloson and the Islanders frustrated the Blue-Shirts all night long

NEW YORK — Without watching a minute of action, it was easy to tell which New York team came out on top in the first half of a home-and-home series between the Islanders and Rangers.

All it took was a glimpse at the postgame reactions.

While the Islanders celebrated a team effort that produced a 2-1 road win on Wednesday night, Rangers coach John Tortorella unleashed an expletive-filled tirade after his offensively challenged club dropped its fifth straight (0-3-2).

Rangers host Islanders

December 16, 2009

Henrik Lundqvist has been dissapointing so far this season

via Associated Press

The New York Islanders‘ season may have hit a low point in their most recent contest, a blowout loss at home that was their fourth defeat in five games.

They won’t have to travel far to find another struggling club, as the New York Rangers carry a four-game losing streak into Wednesday’s opener of a home-and-home set between the local rivals.

Although they’re on pace to surpass the NHL-worst 61 points they earned last season, the Islanders (12-14-7) have still looked like a rebuilding team lately, losing three times by at least four goals during a 1-4-0 stretch.

Islanders routed by the Panthers

December 15, 2009

Nathan Horton scores his first of three goals

I actually watched most of this game, and what an embarrassment it was.  The Islanders were beaten to every loose puck, could not get their fore-check going, and looked flat in every aspect of the game. 

If there had been anything more significant than the sparse crowd on hand at Nassau Coliseum last night, the Islanders would’ve been hit with a hurricane of boos, but with the paltry attendance (listed as 10,489) the team was lucky to escape with just an understated shower of discontent after a humiliating 7-1 defeat by the Panthers.

Islanders feast on some home-cooking

December 12, 2009

Frans Nielsen beat Tim Thomas for the game winner in overtime

 

The Islanders snapped a three-game losing streak with Frans Nielsen’s breakaway backhander 24 seconds into overtime. Dwayne Roloson was great once again in goal and held the Islanders in the game despite being outshot 17-3 by the Bruins in the third period.Matt Moulson had a goal and an assist for the Islanders (12-13-7), Rob Schremp scored his first NHL goal, and Kyle Okposo had two assists.

“That one was from juniors,” Schremp joked. “That was fun. I was excited. It was just nice to see the goal get past the line.”
