History has shown us that the NHL standings come Thanksgiving are often a good indicator of where teams will be at the end of the season. With a few notable exceptions, the teams that are in playoff position at this time of year are usually able to hold on to those spots and make postseason runs in April. The teams that are off the back usually have to do something special to fight...
Sydney Esiason, who is still dating Islanders winger Matt Martin, has been hired by NHL.com as a game highlights reporter, or something like that (it probably won’t take long for the job to evolve into TV work). Esiason made her debut Thursday night by reading Bruins-Blue Jackets highlights.
It’s a start.
Longtime BC readers will remember that Syds got her start in the TV...
ST. LOUIS -- Nobody expected the Saint Louis University Billikens to go undefeated this season. But not many had them losing their first home game to one of those schools whose name is a mouthful, either.
They did, though, falling to the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islanders 62-56 on Sunday afternoon. While the Islanders considered this the signature victory of Willis Wilson's four...

With less than a minute to play Islanders Dman Johnny Boychuk got a cheap one in on Evgeni Malkin:
This is why Bob McKenzie is such a valuable addition to NBC’s coverage of the NHL. Anytime someone can make a joke at the expense of Mike Milbury’s tenure of the New York Islanders, it’s a win. Let’s just hope he wasn’t hit with a shoe after the cameras stop rolling.

Pens Islanders home and home this weekend. What could possibility go wrong?
Mike Milbury was a horrible GM for the New York Islanders. Every hockey fan knows this, but few have ever had the opportunity to say it to his face. Bob McKenzie saw an opportunity and went for it.
UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -- Cal Clutterbuck, Mikhail Grabovski and Ryan Strome scored in the second period to lift the New York Islanders to a 5-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night.

The former child prodigy and number one overall pick of the New York Islanders in the 2009 NHL Entry draft, John Tavares, has been steadily improving and is now considered amongst the best players in the game. His drive and determination to be the best has no doubt kept him on the right path during the first portion of his NHL career.
John Tavares has enduring some very lean times...

Here’s a save you may have never seen before. Jaroslav Halak stopped an initial shot and then trapped the puck against the crossbar with his shoulder as it started to trickle over his body. File this one under the “couldn’t do it again if he tried 100 times” category.
New York Islanders prospect Josh Ho-Sang knows a phenomenal goal deserves a phenomenal celebration.
The Windsor Spitfires forward scored a beauty of a goal on an end-to-end rush in Saturday’s OHL game against the Mississauga Steelheads to give his team a one-goal lead midway through the third period. But what the 18-year-old did after the goal is the real story here.
