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.

The Flyers celebrate after defeating the Islanders for the 12th time in a row

The struggling Flyers found the perfect remedy for their 5-game losing streak — a dose of the New York Islanders. Philadelphia defeated the Isles 6-2, and now has won 12 in a row and 15 of 16 against the New York, dating to the 2007-08 season.

The Islanders got behind Philadelphia early and were left just trying to make the game respectable. They were never able to do that, as the Flyers were just too quick, too strong, and more determined than the lifeless fishermen.

Flyers out hustle, out muscle, Islanders in 2-1 win

November 26, 2009

Scott Hartnell scored the game-winner for the Flyers

Despite grabbing the Flyers’ most potent Islander-killer of years past in Martin Biron (12-1-0 against the Islanders), New York still couldn’t beat Philadelphia on Long Island last night.  The Islanders went all of last year without beating Philadelphia, and although Biron was solid in net,  the Islanders didn’t give him much help.  The Isles registered only one shot on goal in the third period that was tied 1-1 until Scott Hartnell’s game-winner at 14:33.  The Islanders had 28 shots throughout the first two periods, but seemed to tire towards the end as the Flyers were able to out-work them to loose pucks.

Nolan’s late goal downs Islanders

November 21, 2009

Owen Nolan made the crowd go wild.

Not quite the homecoming Kyle Okposo had hoped for.

Just when it looked like the Islanders would play their 11th overtime period in 22 games, Owen Nolan notched his second goal of the night with a little over a minute to play in the third period to break a 2-2 tie, shock the Islanders and give the Wild a 3-2 win at Xcel Energy Center last night.

With 1:07 remaining in regulation, Nolan scored after Eric Belanger intercepted Blake Comeau’s clearing attempt at the blue line and connected with Nolan down low for the game-winner.The oldest guy on the team, Nolan, was the difference maker, not only offensively but defensively as he dove down to block a shot in the waning seconds as well.
