Recap: Isles Fall in Shootout 3-2 to Blackhawks

The Islanders earn a point in shootout loss, take six-game point streak into all-star break

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / NewYorkIslanders.com

The New York Islanders won't go into the all-star break on a win, but a six-game point streak took a little bit of the sting out of Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. 

"It was a game we could have won, it's frustrating, but we have to look at the big picture here," said Mathew Barzal. "It's been a great last two months and a great run. It's going to be nice to get some time off here, re-group and hopefully bring that same pace and intensity."

SOROKIN POSTS EIGHTH SHUTOUT: 

Ilya Sorokin recorded his eighth shutout of the season last week, making 27 saves in a 3-0 win over Metallurg Magnitogorsk on Jan. 15. The shutout was Sorokin's second consecutive clean sheet after recording a 19-save shutout against Traktor on Jan. 11. Overall, CSKA Moscow have recorded four consecutive shutouts between Sorokin and Lars Johansson. 

Sorokin, the Islanders' 2014 third-round pick, improved to 23-5-3 this season with a 1.17 goals-against average, a .942 save percentage and eight shutouts. Sorokin's career-high for shutouts is 10. 

Sorokin was named to the KHL All-Star Game, which took place this past week, but the goalie pulled out due to a unspecified injury, according to the KHL's official website. He was replaced by Johansson.

Recap: Isles Shut Out Ducks 3-0 For Fifth Straight Win

Robin Lehner makes 19 saves, Cal Clutterbuck scores two goals in win over Ducks

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / NewYorkIslanders.com

Robin Lehner made 19 saves and Cal Clutterbuck scored two goals as the New York Islanders skated to their second straight shutout win, blanking the Anaheim Ducks 3-0 at NYCB Live. 

The Islanders' shutout streak currently stands at 132:53, with both Thomas Greiss and Lehner delivering clean sheets over that span. The back-to-back shutouts are the exclamation point on a stingy defensive stretch for the Islanders, who have only allowed three goals on their five-game winning streak and held their last three opponents to under 20 shots. 

"There's no secret ingredient, it's hard work, commitment and following our structure," Lehner said. "It leads to good things and we know we can go in confidently into a game against anyone in this league knowing we have a chance to win and it grows confidence."

With the win, the Islanders (62 points) remain first in the Metropolitan Division and hold a three-point lead on Washington and Columbus.

At first glance, it looks like any ordinary hockey tournament. 

Kids in matching team jackets run around the lobby of Northwell Health Ice Center, some are taping sticks, while others throw tennis balls at their goalies to keep them sharp. There are two games going on simultaneously on the two rinks, with cold parents clutching hot coffees to keep warm between cheers.
