New York Islanders Game Recaps

Recaps of every game the New York Islanders play

Isles 4*, Sabres 3 (*SO): Lee's pair, fights, 26th


The Isles and Sabres met to close out the season, and it was everything you thought it would be.

Isles 3*, Devils 2 (*SO): Kids troll Brodeur


The New York Islanders' band of rookies claimed another victory, spinning past a ticked Martin Brodeur and the New Jersey Devils in a shootout.

Isles 2, Canadiens 0: Ha.


Two New York Islanders rookies scored, Evgeni Nabokov grabbed his 59th shutout, while Johan Sundstrom grabbed a trip to the hospital courtesy of the glacial Douglas Murray.

Sens 4 (EN), Isles 1: Home slate mercifully over


The New York Islanders will finish the 2013-14 season with 13 home wins, the fewest since the 2000-01 season. That's about all you need -- plus gifs! -- from their 4-1 loss to the Senators.

CBJ 4, Isles 0: PK rolls over as tanks roll in


If only there were no such thing as special teams, this game would have been close and entertaining. Alas, absent that EA Sports version of the world, the New York Islanders' penalty kill undid...

Caps 4*, Isles 3 (SO): de Haan, Grabner hurt


The New York Islanders lost a shootout to the Washington Capitals on Fan Appreciation Night, but more importantly they lost two players who have been positive contributors in this lost season.

Isles 2, Sens 1: Nilsson and the unsung heroes


The New York Islanders continued an unlikely run, winning their third in a row and seventh in 10 games with a rookie-filled lineup.

Isles 4, Panthers 2: Halmo gets on the board


The game didn't mean much, even in lottery terms, but the New York Islanders and Florida Panthers at least put up a fight during the Isles' 4-2 win at Nassau Coliseum.

Isles 2*, Devils 1 (*SO): Much quicker this time.


With playoff implications for one team, the New York Islanders and New Jersey Devils played a low-scoring game that reached extra time, because that's what the Devils do.

Bolts 3*, Isles 2: 13-round rookie-laden shootout*


In a game that ultimately means nothing for the New York Islanders in the standings, a lengthy, rookie-heavy shootout ensued in their loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.


Isles 5, Canes 4: Bent, but not blown


Colin McDonald and Matt Martin scored two goals each, the Isles 3-0 before the Canes had a shot on goal (and 4-0 before the 11th minute), and it was 4-3 at 2:42 of the second period before both...

Isles 2, Blue Jackets 0: Old Man Nabokov with #58


Evgeni Nabokov notched his 58th NHL career regular season shutout as the New York Islanders frustrated the playoff-chasing Columbus Blue Jackets.

Wild 6, Isles 0: Moulson starts, finishes rout


The New York Islanders couldn't score, couldn't defend, couldn't penalty kill, and sure as hell couldn't stop the puck in an impotent 6-0 home loss to the Minnesota Wild.

Isles 4 (EN), Sabres 1: Okposo keeps rolling


The New York Islanders finally won another home game, picking up a "oughta have" victory over the 30th-place Buffalo Sabres for just their 10th home-ice win of the season.

Sharks 4, Isles 3: Yada yada Anders Lee


The New York Islanders outshot a San Jose Sharks team that routinely outshoots its opponents by seven shots per game. They still lost, 4-3, dropping them to an amazing 9-17-8 on Coliseum home ice.

Islanders 7 (EN), Canucks 4: What the hell?


The New York Islanders stunned the Vancouver Canucks with seven goals to reverse a 3-0 third-period deficit.

Flames 4, Isles 3: Oops, they did it again


Once again the New York Islanders earned themselves a two-goal lead entering the third period in Alberta. Once again they let it all slip away in a flash.

Oilers 3, Isles 2 (OT): For want of a 3-goal lead


Unbelievably, file another blown two-goal, third-period lead in the books for the New York Islanders.

Isles 3, Jets 2 (OT): Faster Grabner, faster


The New York Islanders beat the Jets without Thomas Vanek, who was scratched, and Andrew MacDonald, who was traded, and Eric Boulton, who was, well, whatever.

Cats 5, Isles 3: Who's afraid of a 2-goal lead?


Thomas Vanek scored two goals in what could be his last game as an Islander, while the Islanders blew yet another third-period two-goal lead.

Devils 6, Isles 1: Jagr scores 700th in his sleep


The New York Islanders showed up for one period on Saturday afternoon, then closed up shop to allow the New Jersey Devils to collect an easy win and a milestone for Jaromir Jagr.

Isles 5, Leafs 4 (OT): Visnovsky ends the madness


In the New York Islanders' first game of a fourth quarter without John Tavares, Michael Grabner (shorthanded) and Anders Lee each scored two goals, while Lubomir Visnovsky scored in overtime to...

Avs 5, Isles 2 (EN x2): DQ'd at the Olympics


A recap of the Islanders 5-2 loss to Colorado at the Olympic Break. Matt Duchene scored twice, and the Avalanche took a million penalties in the third period, but the Islanders limp into the Sochi...

Flames 4 (EN), Islanders 2: Situation Normal


Islanders return to the status quo: Find themselves trailing by two goals, come back and tie the score, and inevitably lose the game to a team they should've beaten.

Isles 1, Capitals 0: Not a misprint


Against all odds, the New York Islanders and Washington Capitals played two scoreless periods before Andrew MacDonald of all people broke the ice with a seeing-eye shot from the point that beat...

Rangers 4 (EN), Isles 1: Many shots, and regrets


After a fatal 0-4-1 run against better opponents, two games remain for the New York Islanders before the Olympic break.
