New York Islanders Previews

Isles-Leafs Preview: Scratch Grabs to keep it fair

When the New York Islanders meet the Maple Leafs in Toronto tonight, each team will be looking to shake funks where they've won just two of their last six, and each team will have built-in excuses if it doesn't work.

Isles-Red Wings Preview + Bits: Coach Fighter II

Thomas Vanek is not back and Daniel Alfredsson is also out, but no one cares because this is the first game the Islanders and Red Wings will play since Jack Capuano punked Mike Babcock with a timeout in a 5-1 win in 2012.

Isles-Kings Preview: Johnny be OK, Quick be not

The most important thing about tonight: John Tavares is OK. Banged up, but fine. That may mean the already physical Los Angeles Kings target him even more, but a lineup without him would look particularly ugly against one of the league's top teams.

Isles-Preds Preview: Poulin starts...new chapter?

Coach Jack Capuano announced what equates to a significant change: Kevin Poulin will start his second consecutive game.

Preview: Slumping Isles vs. Slumping Canadiens

The Isles and Canadiens -- each of whom expect far better of themselves -- are both 3-6-1 in their last 10. The Canadiens are winless in their last four, but had the decency not to lose all of those to division rivals.

Islanders-Jackets Preview: Mutually assured dread

Forget what the teams are doing, both the fanbases involved tonight will be on a ledge if their team loses this game.

Advance Scout: CBJ, next struggling Metro foes

Next up for the Islanders, in the first of a road back-to-back this weekend, are the Columbus Blue Jackets, yet another fumbling Metropolitan Division team looking for a favor.

Isles-Canes Preview: Ness returns, Poulin starts

It's been a long while since Aaron Ness made his nine-game NHL debut.

Caps-Isles Preview: Behold, prodigal Patrick bros

The Caps meet the Islanders for the first time under the new alignment, with transient-November second place in the Metro on the line, and Alexander Ovechkin expected back in the lineup.

Preview: Isles-Bruins in battle of backups

The Islanders are playing the end of a back-to-back, as they and the Boston Bruins are expected to start their backup goalies Saturday at Nassau Coliseum.
