Islanders Spread Cheer at Holiday Hospital Visits

The Islanders delivered toys to kids in local hospitals

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Phinehas Cullen is in a place no child wants to be around the holidays. Same goes for his parents. 

Phinehas - nicknamed Phin - is in the hospital because of a kidney issue and will likely have to come back for surgery in January. It's a stressful time under normal circumstances, but somehow seems worse around the holidays. 

If there were a bright spot in all this, it was Thursday, when a group of New York Islanders came to visit the play room at Cohen Children's Medical Center in New Hyde Park. Phinehas beat Johnny Boychuk in Connect 4 and stepped in the ring with Rock'em, Sock'em Robots vs Anders Lee. Afterwards, he got to pick out a present from a pile of toys the Islanders had brought with them.

Islanders Fall 3-2 to Golden Knights

The Islanders suffer first-ever loss to Vegas on Wednesday

by Cory Wright WrightsWay /

Wednesday's Islanders-Golden Knights game was the type of low-chance, structured game the Islanders would take most nights. 

The Islanders limited Vegas to 17 shots and fewer chances, but despite playing good, defensive hockey for a majority of the game, they came out with no points, falling 3-2 to the Golden Knights. 

"We held a pretty good hockey team to 17 shots, you feel you should get a point out of that," Head Coach Barry Trotz said. "It's a missed opportunity. We played well in so many areas of the game, but we gave them things that were a little bit unforced."

The looks on their faces said it all. 

The smiles on children receiving new bikes, dolls, shoes and toys for the holidays. The tears of joy on the faces of their moms and dads watching their kids unwrap presents. 

It was a heartwarming scene at Northwell Health Ice Center on Tuesday night, as the New York Islanders partnered with the Family and Children's Association to sponsor a holiday party for families connected to the Nursery Co-Op in Hempstead.

The Bridgeport Report: Week 10

Koivula extends scoring streak as Sound Tigers split a pair of games

by Alan Fuehring AlanFuehring / New York Islanders

Otto Koivula extended his goal-scoring streak to three games and Sebastian Aho collected a trio of assists last week as the Bridgeport Sound Tigers (14-8-3-1), proud AHL affiliate of the New York Islanders, split a two-game series within the division.

In fact, the Sound Tigers are in the midst of a season-long, 17-game stretch against Atlantic Division rivals. That streak continued on Wednesday when the Sound Tigers hosted the Hartford Wolf Pack at Webster Bank Arena and earned a 2-1 victory. Koivula and Chris Bourque, who scored the game-winner midway through the third period, each found the back of the net, while Aho dished out two assists and now ranks second on the team with 15 helpers. In net, Jeremy Smith (7-5-1) was stellar and backstopped the hard-fought effort with 25 saves on 26 shots.
