Tonight is part 2 of the home and home matchup against the Islanders.Will the Pens be able to rebound from their defensive flubs?Or will the Islanders tilt the ice in their favor at home?
REBOUND:After a 5-4 shootout loss the Penguins are looking to rebound against the Isles just 24 hours later. Even though they were able to recover from a 3-1 deficit...

The New York Islanders secured a big victory on the road in Pittsburgh thanks to an awesome shootout goal from Kyle Okposo. Dekes on dekes. Okposo sends Marc-Andre Fleury the wrong way and slides the puck past the flailing goaltender.

With less than a minute to play Islanders Dman Johnny Boychuk got a cheap one in on Evgeni Malkin:
It’s almost Thanksgiving, which means it’s November and that the New York Islanders should be in the midst of some sort of record-setting losing streak. Well thanks to the additions of Johnny Boychuk and Nick Leddy on October fourth, plus the recently stellar play of goaltender Jaroslav Halak and secondary scoring that has been there all season, the Islanders are playing like...
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.
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.
Lubomir Visnovsky and Casey Cizikas also scored and Jaroslav Halak stopped 26 shots for the Islanders, who got a measure of revenge for a 5-2 loss at Tampa on Saturday that snapped their five-game winning...

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.
It was a busy week in the NHL, with one of the main events being an off-ice tragedy in Canada’s capital. The game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators was canceled after Canadian authorities responded to a gunfire at Parliament, which resulted in the death of Corporal Nathan Cirillo. After the initial shock, Canada and the entire NHL came together in support of those...
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.
Winger Josh Bailey from the New York Islanders was unable to finish the team’s game on Thursday evening against the Boston Bruins as he departed late in first period with what has now been diagnosed as a broken hand. #457253608 / gettyimages.comArthur Staple from Newsday is reporting that Josh Bailey suffered this injury late in the first period as the result of a slash.

Chris Peters of cbssports.com reported that Hickey immediately left the ice and did not return to the game.Cut in the face by a skate last night, but he's back out for practice...

The start to the New York Islanders season has gone about as well as anyone could have hoped.

Many are now considering the Islanders as a playoff team because of their successful start.

Once upon a time, the New York Islanders were one of the greatest dynasties in all of sports. Things took a turn in the 90s and ever since they’ve been known for ineffective ownership, poor management, and mediocre hockey. The drafting of John Tavares and the emergence of players like Kyle Okposo has given fans hope that the Isles could be on a road...
For the first time in seemingly forever, the New York Islanders are being talked about in a positive way. I’m not going to lie, it’s a little jarring. Getting back super-duper-star John Tavares from injury was already a huge addition of sorts for the team this offseason. Then they added Jaroslav Halak in goal, greatly […]

Getting traded from a Stanley Cup contender to a team that has only made the playoffs once in the last seven years might be disheartening for some players.
But for Johnny Boychuk, who was traded Saturday from the Boston Bruins to the New York Islanders, it’s a chance to prove his worth as a top player on a team’s blueline.
