    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Simmonds vs. Martin — 3/15/12

    The New York Islanders were having a tough time holding their own on the scoreboard against the Philadelphia Flyers last night, as they found themselves trailing by a score of 3-0 before scoring two goals late in the third period.  However, they weren’t having the same problem in the fighting department, thanks to some fine […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Haley vs. Bickel — 3/11/12

    Heading into Sunday’s game between the New York Islanders and the New York Rangers, Michael Haley and Stu Bickel had dropped the gloves with one another twice during their hockey careers (once in the AHL and once in the NHL during an earlier meeting this season).  They wasted little time completing the trilogy, as the […]

    Scott Gomez Scored! Scott Gomez Scored! Scott Gomez Scored! (Video)

    It only took him 368 days, but Scott Gomez has scored!  And we have the proof. While this goal will surely help to relieve some of the pressure on the 32-year-old center, no one will be more relieved than the Montreal Canadiens management, as they should be able to sleep much easier knowing that they […]

    If you are a fan of goals, last night’s game between the Philadelphia Flyers and the New York Islanders was not for you. Through 65 minutes of play these two teams combined to score a whopping zero goals.  The Islanders directed 18 shots on the Flyers goal throughout the evening, but they couldn’t manage to […]

    After enjoying the festivities of his first ever NHL All-Star Game appearance, it was back to work for John Tavares, as his New York Islanders traveled to Carolina to take on the Hurricanes.  Unlike every other player participating in this game, Tavares wasn’t afforded to opportunity to rest during the All-Star break this season, but […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Giroux vs. Reese — 1/19/12

    Last night’s NHL action provided us with a total of six fights, and while none of them ranked high on the entertainment meter, one of them did feature one of the league’s top players.  It took place during a game between the Philadelphia Flyers and the New York Islanders, as 50-point-man Claude Giroux dropped the […]

    9 Worst Places To Watch An NHL Game

    With the NHL season at its midway point, it is a good time to step back and take stock of what we’ve seen so far. And while a lot of pundits have focused their mid-season reviews on the top plays, how teams have performed (who are the big surprises?), and the state of the game […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Kassian vs. Martin — 11/29/11

    Things got testy between the New York Islanders and the Buffalo Sabres last night, as a questionable hit by Nino Niederreiter on Nathan Gerbe along the benches caused play to stop as players from both teams gathered to discuss matters. And while Niederreiter, Gerbe and several others engaged in a meaningless shoving match, Matt Martin […]

    Boston Bruins left wing Daniel Paille made a strong case for mandatory visors last night. Without his visor, he might very well have been killed. Check the video for brutal footage of Paille taking a hard New York Islanders’ slapshot right in the face, and wait for the debate about visors to heat up again […]

    Another Look At Sean Avery’s Dirty Hit-From-Behind (Video)

    When it comes to cheapshots, the resume of Sean Avery is a rather long one, and he was busy adding to his extensive list of questionable acts last night during a game against the New York Islanders. Less than three minutes into the game, Avery lined up the Michael Haley along the boards and drilled […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Konopka vs. Staubitz — 3/2/11

    Having recorded more man-games lost due to injury than any other team in the league, the New York Islanders felt their opposition had been taking liberties on them for far too long.  As a result, they decided to fight back, beginning with their epic brawl-filled game against the Pittsburgh Penguins less than a month ago.  […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/21/11 — Matt Moulson

    The New Jersey Devils are not the only bottom-feeding team using a hot streak to make one final push for the playoffs.  Surprisingly, the New York Islanders have put together quite the run of their own in February, as they entered yesterday afternoon’s game against the Florida Panthers having won seven of their ten games […]

    Hockey fans may remember Mikko Koskinen.  He is the New York Islanders fifth (?) string goaltender who was forced into action on Tuesday against the Toronto Maple Leafs after Kevin Poulin went down with an injury during warm-ups.  It was his first career NHL start and it would turn out to be a record-breaking performance, […]
