Islanders cruise past the Red Wings

January 13, 2010

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.

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.

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

via Associated Press

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).

Islanders look home-sick

December 10, 2009

Scott Gordon's Isles have lost 4 of their last 5.

 Toronto’s Jason Blake knocked home a bouncing puck with less than 5 minutes remaining against his former team, and the Maple Leafs held on for a 3-2 victory on Wednesday night.  Despite John Tavares’ two power-play goals to tie the game in the third period, the Islanders headed back home to New York without a point. 

Goalie Dwayne Roloson was the star of the show last time in Toronto, making 58 saves en route to a 4-3 victory.   16 days removed from his miraculous performance against the Leafs,  he could not match his heroic effort from weeks prior.

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.

“It was good,” Moulson said. “My dad said he’d lock me out if I didn’t score or we didn’t get a win.”
