Gallof: Work-In-Progress Islanders Likely 1 More Season Away From Relevance

Capellini: The Curious Case Of The Islanders’ Al Montoya

So it appears Al Montoya isn’t superhuman after all? The Islanders’ No. 1 goaltender — yes, now the team’s undisputed starter — hasn’t been too good of late and it has many people asking why. I think I know the answer.

Gallof: The Lay Of The Land In Islanders Country

No corner on the Islanders season has been turned just yet. However, being able to put on the brakes to this year’s losing streak is far different to last year’s spin out into oblivion. That is a clear step forward.
