According to Newsday, the Isles have discussed acquiring backup goalie Jonathan Bernier with Kings general manager Dean Lombardi.
For the Isles, it’s all about the next move — and I don’t mean the one to Brooklyn, though that will help, too.
Mark Streit’s days on Long Island are basically over, but it’s by no means a death sentence for the Islanders. They just need to play their many cards in the right hand.
The Isles will assess and look to see what they can improve on this summer. However, the shopping list that has excited fans on Twitter, message boards and in regular conversation is simply unrealistic.
There will be professional hockey at Yankee Stadium in 2014. Two games will be played in the Bronx next season as part of the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series, the NHL announced on Wednesday.
For the first time in ages the Islanders are not in rebuilding mode. They are in re-tooling mode. That’s an alien concept to many, but it’s the truth, and they need to act on it.
So how do the Islanders pull this miracle off? They can start by watching “Miracle,” of course.
All season I’ve stated the Islanders needed 54 points to make the playoffs. They have used a 7-0-3 run to get there. But where they are now can be attributed to many more factors, all of which had to happen.
If it’s a playoff atmosphere you want, rest assured, you’re going to get it and then some at the old barn off the Hempstead Turnpike soon enough.
Brooklyn will get a look at its future NHL franchise in September, when the Islanders play the Devils in a preseason tilt at Barclays Center.
Is this a coming-of-age story? You’re damn right it is. What the Islanders have done over the last six weeks is basically force the rest of the NHL to open its eyes and pay attention.
Ok, so how are we going to keep this interesting? Because, to be quite blunt, the addition of Anders Lee to the NHL club from college is about as much action as Isles fans are going to get.
Who are the 2013 Islanders? That’s hard to say at this point. But they are nearly halfway through their schedule and need to find out soon, or it will be another lost spring on Long Island.
The Islanders say they are aware of DiPietro’s comments about depression and suicide, and plan to handle the matter internally.
He might have just two games to notch a win. No coach lives comfortably with a multi-game losing streak. Seven in a row could be the last straw for Capuano here in Islanders Country.
