Islanders’ decision to keep Doug Weight saves Garth SnowIslanders 2

Sun, 16 Apr 2017 00:55:02 -0400

Maybe Doug Weight, who has been an important part of the Islanders’ front office since 2011-12, is destined to become the franchise’s next Al Arbour. Maybe the 40 games he coached — perhaps coaxing the team to a 24-12-4 record and a shot at finishing eighth in the East following a shipwreck first half under...

What will it take to disrupt the lackluster Islanders status quo?IslesSnow

Wed, 12 Apr 2017 15:30:16 -0400

It’s apparent day after day and year after year that the Islanders operate in their own bubble, and the surrounding world of the NHL has little impact on how they operate. Sometimes, that’s a positive. Often, it’s not. It’s an outlook and an attitude they created out of the idea that they get no respect....

For a month, general manager Garth Snow knew he wanted to hire Doug Weight as the full-time head coach of the Islanders. But Weight, Weight, maybe the man in the organization with the best sense of perspective and patience, waited until he sat down with ownership two days after the playoff-less season before deciding he...

Good job, good effort. It didn’t matter whether the Islanders won or lost against the Senators on Sunday. Their fate was sealed the night before when the Maple Leafs clinched the final wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference, eliminating the Isles and their last-ditch effort to reach the postseason. The Islanders’ (41-29-12) consolation prize was...

Some of them may have learned their fate while on the Cross Bronx Expressway, others maybe on the LIE or Grand Central, and others perhaps on the Verrazano or Throgs Neck as the Islanders made their way home by car service following Saturday’s 4-2 victory over the Devils in Newark that kept their playoff hearts...

Islanders’ playoff dream overIslanders Devils Hockey

The Islanders are finishing the season as one of the NHL’s hottest teams — and one with no place to go, except home. The Islanders were eliminated from playoff contention Saturday night despite running their winning streak to five games with a 4-2 decision over the Devils at the Prudential Center behind two goals by...

RALEIGH, N.C. — The Islanders’ last four games have been must-wins — and Jaroslav Halak has won them all. Halak stopped 29 shots in his second shutout of the season, and the fast-starting Islanders beat the Hurricanes 3-0 on Thursday night. Brock Nelson and Scott Mayfield scored early goals and Andrew Ladd added a power-play...

Islanders keep slim playoff hopes alive with overtime win

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Islanders still are scrapping and fighting for every point possible to preserve their very slim playoff hopes for another game. Nashville already has its postseason berth, and the Islanders took advantage of the Predators being just a bit more relaxed. Thomas Hickey scored 1:25 into overtime, and the Islanders won 2-1...

BUFFALO — Anders Lee and the New York Islanders refused to pack in their late-season playoff push minus captain John Tavares. Lee capitalized on a pair of turnovers to score third-period goals a little more than five minutes apart to keep the Islanders in the playoff hunt with a 4-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres...

For years they had been inseparable, off the ice and on the ice, where they made magic as sweet as any set of NHL matched-pair wingers have in a very, very long time, and in the mind’s eye of the hockey universe. But after a while, Patrik Elias yearned for independence from his friend Petr...

Even the most ardent hater couldn’t have wanted this to happen, not like this. Yet what seemed like an inevitability due to the awful ice surface at Barclays Center turned into the worst-case scenario, with Islanders captain John Tavares suffering a hamstring injury during his team’s 2-1 win over the Devils on Friday night. Tavares’...

The word “desperate” might not be enough to describe the way the Islanders are feeling as their roller-coaster season winds to a close. After plunging in the standings following an impressive midseason push, they absolutely needed a win against the last-place Devils Friday night. Thanks to Jaroslav Halak, coupled with general futility from the New...

When Doug Weight first took over as interim head coach of the Islanders on Jan. 17, he brought with him a hopeful, if not wistful, optimism. Now, after his team clawed back into the playoff picture, then went through a lull of 3-5-1 that has them again on the outside looking in, the outlook is...

Rarely are the things coming out of a player’s mouth as interesting as the things he does on the ice. But Josh Ho-Sang is nothing if not a rarity, a mix of sublime talent and introspective candidness that make the Islanders’ 21-year-old forward a magnetic force. He speaks of all the things he has learned...

Doug Weight has already seen what an influx of youth and energy can bring to his worn-out Islanders team, and there is a chance that more of that could be coming soon.

You can hear it in their voices more than in what they’re saying. You can see it in their play between the whistles more than in the emotion or frustration that boils over after the play. After six weeks of relentless struggle, the Islanders are burned out. The 3-1 loss to the Predators on Monday...

It did not take long for Andrew Ladd to find out what it’s like to stroll into New York on a big contract and underperform. The Islanders signed the free-agent forward to a seven-year, $38.5 million deal this summer, the annual salary-cap hit of $5.5 million being carried in hopes of filling the void left...

The question in front of the Islanders is less about what exactly led to the deep stinging that resulted from the 2-1 defeat to the Bruins on Saturday night at Barclays Center, a brutal loss that allowed Boston to leapfrog these Brooklynites for the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference. Instead, the question for...
