Islanders rue missed chances in Stadium Series

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

NEW YORK -- The New York Islanders were given every opportunity to win at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday night in their first-ever outdoor game.

The Islanders failed to capitalize on two power plays in the first period and didn't convert on two more during the final 40 minutes in a 2-1 loss to the New York Rangers in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series.

The missed opportunities cost the Islanders two more valuable points in the standings and extended their losing streak to four games (0-3-1). The teams will play again Friday night at Madison Square Garden.


Islanders' Nabokov impressive in return vs. Rangers

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

NEW YORK -- Some may have thought it was too much to ask New York Islanders goaltender Evgeni Nabokov to make his first start in nearly a month in the freezing conditions Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium.

Nabokov and the Islanders may have come up short in a 2-1 loss to the New York Rangers in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series, but the veteran goalie was on top of his game despite making his first start in more than three weeks.

"You never really know until you're there and you see that great atmosphere," said Nabokov, who made 32 saves. "I love it; I love every second of it. The atmosphere was great. Obviously, the building's a little bit more louder."

It didn't take long for the Rangers to test Nabokov, who hadn't started since Jan. 6, when he sustained a lower-body injury in a game against the Dallas Stars.


Bailey: Despite loss, memories abound at Stadium

Josh Bailey - Special to NHL.com

New York Islanders forward Josh Bailey thoroughly enjoyed his experience in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series at Yankee Stadium, even though his team came up a goal short in a 2-1 loss to their arch rival, the New York Rangers, at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday night. In the final edition of the player blog he is doing for NHL.com, Bailey talks about his experiences, the thrill of stepping onto the ice at Yankee Stadium and the disappointment of going home without a victory.

Obviously it was a disappointment with the way the game ended. I thought we played pretty well, but we just weren’t able to generate enough goals. We would have liked to get the win, but the more we look back on it, the more it will be something we’ll never forget.

It was awesome getting to dress in the Yankees’ locker room. We were all looking around, trying to figure out whose locker we had – I didn’t actually find out whose locker I was using, but we found out where a couple of those guys sit. It was definitely cool to be able to experience Yankee Stadium, to get to go out on the field and take the ice for a game out there.


Islanders, Rangers fans soak in Stadium Series

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

NEW YORK -- It didn't matter that the thermometer read 21 degrees 90 minutes before puck drop between the New York Rangers and New York Islanders at Yankee Stadium in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series. Rangers fan Terrence McCallen was determined to brave the elements and take in the whole experience.

"It's a once-in-a-lifetime event," said McCallen, who was standing in the front row of Section 107 in right field, watching the NHL Network pregame show. "I thought I might as well get here [early] and see everything the stadium has to offer. It's been incredible so far since I got here."

McCallen is part of a capacity crowd expected at Yankee Stadium, three days after the Rangers beat the New Jersey Devils 7-3 in front of 50,105 at this famous ballpark. The recent graduate of Creighton University didn't know he'd be a part of it until last month.

"Once I got [tickets], I was totally stoked," said McCallen, who received his tickets as a Christmas gift. "I was counting down the days until today.

Nabokov to start for Islanders in Stadium Series

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

NEW YORK -- Two hours before the puck dropped at Yankee Stadium, New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano revealed that his No. 1 goaltender will start for the first time in nearly a month.

Evgeni Nabokov, who was activated off injured reserve before the game Monday against the Boston Bruins, will start for the Islanders against the New York Rangers in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series.

Nabokov's most-recent start came on Jan. 6, when he sustained a lower-body injury against the Dallas Stars. He relieved Kevin Poulin during the third period of the 6-3 loss to Boston on Monday.


Yzerman honored with Order of Hockey in Canada

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER – They are separated in age by almost 40 years, but when it comes to hockey in Canada there aren't many degrees of separation between the three recipients of the 2014 Order of Hockey in Canada that were announced on Wednesday morning.

Steve Yzerman, Clare Drake and France St-Louis were named the 2014 class of "Distinguished Honorees of the Order of Hockey in Canada," a program started by Hockey Canada to annually recognize "extraordinary" service to the sport. And it didn't take long to find common bonds between Drake, an 86-year-old coach, St-Louis, a 55-year-old long-time star on Canada's women's team, and Yzerman, the 48-year-old general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Quote of the Day

I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
