B&C Morning Show: Moment Of The Day And Nick’s Farewell

In preparation for his departure, our boy Nick/Rocco/Lupus put together a list of what his replacement – Max Herman who will start on Monday – will be responsible for on a daily basis.

Colombo: New Islanders Arena Won’t Mean New Money For Nassau County

Listen, I want the Islanders to stay on Long Island. But the argument that this project is also worth it because it’s going to create tons and tons of money for the people of Nassau County is a falsehood.

Officials on New York's Long Island will ask voters this summer to approve a $400 million plan to build a new hockey arena next to the current home of the New York Islanders.

Colombo: Why The Islanders Arena Won’t Be Built… And Probably Shouldn’t Be

I’m going to go on record right now and say it, this thing is never getting built, because of the referendum vote.

Islanders Blog: Jack Capuano – The Wrong Choice

The Islanders had a chance to take a big step forward next year… and they just blew it by bringing back Jack Capuano as head coach.

Islanders Blog: Let’s Get Physical

Let’s clarify my point yet again: Playing physical is OK and good for the game. Intentionally hurting people is not.

Colombo: Hey Devils Fans, I’m Not Impressed

If I hear one more local hockey fan getting all impressed about the Devils I’m going to slap somebody.

Islanders Blog: Coaching Is Key

If this NHL season has taught us anything it’s this — coaching is everything. There’s one big reason why the Islanders no longer look atrocious, and that’s Jack Capuano.

Islanders Blog: More Misery

In a season where misery is in high supply, the news Wednesday that Kevin Poulin will miss the rest of the season with a dislocated knee cap is the most miserable news of all.

B&C Show Blog & Audio: Day 2 In Big D, Andy Calls It A Career

It may be Super Bowl week, but the biggest story of the day is a sad one as Andy Pettitte decided to retire. As a lifelong Yankees fan, I think I speak for everyone when I say – thank you Andy.

Islanders Blog: A Lost Cause

Ok, I admit it. I chuckled a little bit Wednesday night when Rick DiPietro got taken down with one punch by Penguins goalie Brent Johnson. That’s a lie, I chuckled more than a little bit.

B&C Show Blog & Audio: Day 1 in Big D

Boomer & Carton trudged through rain, sleet, and snow. They fought through throngs of people and frisky security guards at the local airport. Why? To go to Dallas and deliver you the two greatest Super Bowl week shows possible.

Islanders Blog: No Good Nabokov

Evgeni Nabokov didn’t board the second flight the Islanders booked for him to come to Long Island – so they suspended him. Honestly, it’s a shame that that’s the worst the Isles can do to him.


Moving Time For The Islanders

Islanders Blog: Time To Move On

There’s an obvious question out there no one has the guts to ask, so I’ll do it. Who cares if the Islanders stay on Long Island?

Islanders Blog: Pullin’ For Poulin

Last Saturday, I settled in on my couch to watch a great moment in New York sports history. No, not the Jets. I only had my heart set on seeing one thing – the first start of Kevin Poulin.

Islanders Blog: Time To Start Losing!

Your New York Islanders have won 6 of their last 8 games, and it is the dumbest thing I have ever seen.
