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

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.

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.
