Minnesota 5, Isles 3 

The Minnesota Wild scored three goals in a 4:12 span of the second period to overcome a 2-1 deficit and held on to defeat the Isles 5-3 before a holiday crowd of 15,342 at Barclays Center.

Anders Lee and Tanner Fritz each had milestone goals in the second period for the Islanders; it was Lee's 30th goal of the season and the first of Fritz' NHL career.

Joel Eriksson Ek scored his first goal since opening night to end the Isles' shutout streak at 140:18; Islander goalies had stopped 102 consecutive shots in that span.

Lee raises over $100K at second annual Kancer Jam

Islanders forward raises money for pediatric cancer at second Kan Jam tournament

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Frisbees are flying everywhere at Anders Lee's second Kancer Jam, taking place on the practice court at Barclays Center.

Anders Lee and Fenov Pierre-Louis are in the middle of it all, tossing the yellow discs back and forth, one throwing while the other tries to deflect the frisbee towards the target. In this moment, the Islanders forward and the 16-year-old with Stage IV neuroblastoma are teamed up against Ross Johnston and 10-year-old Isles fan Ethan for a trophy. But Lee and Fenov are also teammates in a much bigger cause: raising money to fight pediatric cancer.

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

The New York Islanders' two-game winning streak was snapped on Monday, as the Isles fell 5-3 to the Minnesota Wild at Barclays Center. 

A 4:12 stretch in the second period ultimately cost the Islanders, as Minnesota scored three quick goals to turn a 2-1 Isles lead into a 4-2 deficit. Tyler Ennis' goal to cap the three-goal burst at 14:06 of the second period held up as the winner.

Isles Day-to-Day: Greiss on IR, Gibson Recalled

Thomas Greiss placed on IR with lower-body injury, Christopher Gibson emergency recalled from Bridgeport

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

UPDATE: Greiss (lower body) placed on IR retroactive to Feb. 16, Christopher Gibson was an emergency recall from Bridgeport. 

Thomas Greiss suffered a lower-body injury during his 45-save shutout against the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday night and was placed on IR on Monday morning. 

"Obviously it's lower body. I don't suspect it's going to be a huge amount of time, but I don't want to speak out of turn," Head Coach Doug Weight said. "If you say two weeks or four weeks and they find something else, I don't want to put him in that position. Certainly lower-body injuries for goalies are a little tougher to decipher. He's on the IR. He played great and hopefully he can take that energy he had and feeling and get back quick."

The call to Bridgeport was made on Monday as Christopher Gibson was an emergency recall. Gibson is 18-11-3 this season and has posted shutouts in consecutive games before his recall. The Sound Tigers goalie played four games with the Islanders during the 2015-16 season, going 1-1-1.

Challenge Accepted

The Islanders have won three of four offside challenges this season

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Hockey can be a game of inches, but when it comes to offside challenges, it's even less than that. 

Friday night, the Islanders won their third offside challenge this season, overturning Jeff Skinner's would-be-tying-goal in the third period of a 1-0 game. Once Skinner got to the net, the goal was clean, but his zone entry 11 seconds before wasn't. 

That's where video coaches Matt Bertani and Doug Holewa come in.

The Skinny - Game 60

Isles 3, Carolina 0  

Thomas Greiss made 45 saves for his 8th career shutout as the Islanders recorded shutouts on back-to-back nights for the first time in their history as the Islanders moved back into a playoff spot with a 3-0 blanking of the Carolina Hurricanes before a crowd of 15,448 at PNC Arena.

It's the Isles' first road shutout since Jaroslav Halak blanked Carolina on April 6th in Raleigh and the first time they had consecutive shutouts since January 16-19, 2017 vs Boston (in Jack Capuano's finale) and Dallas (in Doug Weight's coaching debut).

Doug Weight coached his 100th game; he has the best record through 100 games of any coach in Islander history. An awarded goal for John Tavares in an empty net situation allowed him to reach 30 goals for the 4th time in his career.

The New York Islanders were treating Friday's game in Carolina as a playoff game. 

They needed to take care of business against a team they were chasing for the East's second wild card and after starting the day a point behind the Carolina Hurricanes, they finished a point above thanks to a 3-0 shutout win.

"It was a four-point game for us," Anthony Beauvillier said. "It was a playoff game. It means a lot right now, we're in a great spot and we need to keep pushing."

GAME NOTES


There wasn't much time for the Islanders to savor Thursday's 3-0 win over the Rangers, as the team flew down to Raleigh for Friday's matchup with the Hurricanes. 

The Islanders are completing a back-to-back set on Friday, but so are the Hurricanes, who flew back to North Carolina after losing 5-2 to the New Jersey Devils in Newark on Thursday. With regards to rest, it's advantage no one.
