Postgame Notebook: Flyers 5, Islanders 1

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

The New York Islanders dropped a 5-1 decision to the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night, as the teams played for the third time in three days to start the preseason. 

David Quenneville scored the Islanders lone goal on Tuesday, but the Flyers answered with four straight to turn a 1-1 tie into a 5-1 final to hand the Isles a second straight loss. 

"I think we can play a little better defensively," Head Coach Barry Trotz said. "We looked a little bit fatigued and I think that's the grind of training camp."

Postgame Notebook: Flyers 3, Islanders 1

The Islanders fall in preseason rematch with Flyers

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

A different lineup yielded a different result for the New York Islanders on Monday, as they dropped a 3-1 decision to the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center. 

Mike Sislo scored the Islanders' lone goal on Monday, as the teams played their second game in as many days, although both squads iced nearly all-new lineups in the rematch. 

"I didn't think we were hard on the puck and we were easy to play against," said Head Coach Barry Trotz. "[We made] bad decisions. We were backing up instead of being on our toes. Some guys got a little nervous and gave them way too much space."

Postgame Notebook: Islanders 3, Flyers 0

Barry Trotz pleased with Islanders defensive structure in shutout win over Flyers

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

The New York Islanders shut out the Philadelphia Flyers 3-0 in their preseason opener on Sunday and while the results don't count, the process certainly did for new Head Coach Barry Trotz. 

Kieffer Bellows, Cal Clutterbuck and Sebastian Aho scored for the Islanders, while Robin Lehner and Christopher Gibson split a 17-save shutout at NYCB Live (Nassau Coliseum).

For Trotz, the two things that stuck out were the amount of shots against and the team's penalty kill, both areas that the coach wanted to address. The Islanders allowed 17 shots, went 4-for-4 shorthanded and 2-for-3 on the power play on Sunday.

Islanders Excited For Coliseum Game

Islanders to play preseason game vs Flyers on Sunday, 20 regular season games at Nassau Coliseum.

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Thomas Hickey was trying to describe the feeling of last season's preseason game at Nassau Coliseum. 

It was a little strange warming up on the opposite side of the rink than he was used to and his old pre-game routine had been disrupted by the renovation. But the vibe in the Islanders original home was the same, even if the name - now NYCB Live - was different. And one thing was for certain, it definitely didn't feel like a preseason game.

"It felt like a playoff game," Hickey said.

Trotz Laying Foundation At Islanders Training Camp

Islanders coach stresses hard work and details at first sessions of training camp

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

There will be plenty of time for Barry Trotz to work on the Islanders' structure. Day one was about laying a foundation.

The new head coach skated the Islanders hard during the first on-ice sessions of training camp at Northwell Health Ice Center. The practice featured a lot of skating and tracking drills as well as some small-area games during the 90-minute sessions. 

"Today was all about trying to create a little bit of a foundation and identity and find out which guys are willing to battle and compete," Trotz said. "I don't think there's a guy here who said it was easy."

Maven's Memories: The Tough Corralling Of Denis Potvin

There was some drama ahead of the 1973 NHL Draft, plus Stan's top Isles draft picks

by Stan Fischler StanFischler / New York Islanders

Throughout June 1973, the eyes of the hockey world were riveted on Denis Potvin.

So were the claws.

Secure in the knowledge that they owned the first draft pick, the Islanders' high command couldn't wait to arrive in Montreal to pluck what could prove to be the all-time draft prize. But there were obstacles, both within and without the NHL.
