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.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. — It took until the final game of a four-game homestand for the New York Islanders to capitalize on the home-ice advantage.

Trent Hunter and John Tavares scored 90 seconds apart in the second period, and Dwayne Roloson made 26 saves to help the Islanders beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-1 on Wednesday night.

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.

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.
