Isles Teach Life Lessons at School Day

The Islanders spoke about teamwork, anti-bullying and a healthy lifestyle to kids at Long Island schools

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Mathew Barzal, Anders Lee and Matt Martin were expertly working the 11-and-under crowd at Camp Ave Elementary School in Merrick on Monday. 

Need a shot of energy? Bring up Mario Kart. Want to send everyone home happy? Start a high-five line out the door. Barzal even had the ability to silence the crowd with a single "shhhhh" when things needed to get back on track. 

The only time the cheers turned to gasps was when Barzal brought up the notion of "putting the Fortnite down for a little while."

The Skinny - Game 19
Dallas 6, Isles 2

Esa Lindell and Alexander Radulov each scored twice, as the Dallas Stars overcame a 1-0 first intermission deficit and defeated the Isles 6-2 before a crowd of 10,650 at Barclays Center.

Lindell's goals, which came 4:59 apart, sandwiched the first NHL goal for Roope Hintz as part of a four-goal second period for Dallas; Radulov scored his 99th and 100th career goal in the 3rd period to put the game away.

The loss, which the Isles' first in regulation at Barclays Center since Opening Night, ended a 7-game point streak (5-0-2) in Brooklyn.

The six Dallas goals was the most a Stars team scored against the Isles since the Minnesota North Stars beat the Isles 6-3 at the Coliseum on October 17, 1989.

Lee Pays Tribute to Late Friend at Third Kancer Jam

Anders Lee's third Kancer Jam, held in honor of Fenov Pierre-Louis, raised over $120K

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Anders Lee has delivered some pre-game speeches in his life, but he probably never had to give one as emotional as the one on Sunday. 

The Islanders' captain delivered an eloquent eulogy when he spoke about Fenov Pierre-Louis, Lee's friend and his inspiration for his annual Kan Jam charity tournaments. 

Lee spoke about their friendship, how infectious his smile was and how Fenov had changed his perspective on life. With his arm around Fenov's mother, Lee spoke about how he, a professional hockey player, and Fenov, a teenager from New Jersey, eventually recognized each other as family. If that didn't have the entire gymnasium batting away tears, then the poem Lee read - which Fenov had written to him at the IIHF World Championships in May of this year - did.

Game Recap: Stars 6, Islanders 2

Second period sinks Islanders in loss to Stars

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

The New York Islanders two-game winning streak was snapped on Sunday, as the Isles fell 6-2 to the Dallas Stars at Barclays Center. 

Anthony Beauvillier scored his fourth goal in two games and Scott Mayfield netted his third of the season, but those were the lone bright spots of Sunday's contest. A 1-0 Islanders lead evaporated in a five-minute span of the second period, as the Stars used three quick strikes to take control of the game. 

"The game went south in probably the first six or seven minutes of the second period," Head Coach Barry Trotz said. "We lost the game in the second period, plain and simple."

Alex Radulov (2G, 1A) and Esa Lindell each scored a pair of goals for the Stars, while Tyler Seguin (1G, 2A) and Jamie Benn (3A) each had three-point games.

Puppy Blog: Radar Watches Islanders Practice

The Isles Puppy with a Purpose was at the team's practice on Thursday

by New York Islanders Community Relations NYIslanders / New York Islanders

Someone was barking orders at Thursday's morning skate - and it wasn't any of the Islanders coaches. 

Radar, the Islanders Puppy with a Purpose, was on hand at the team's morning skate, keeping an eye on Islanders before that night's 7-5 win over the Rangers. 

The Isles puppy was sniffing around the net, standing on his hind legs behind the bench and sitting like a good boy in the stands. Of course, he had a meeting with Head Coach Barry Trotz as well. Check out the photos of Radar's trip to practice.
