Islanders Make Dream Come True for Boy Battling Cancer

Currently battling lymphoma, eight-year-old Brandon Bloom was an Islander for a day

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Brandon Bloom couldn't stop smiling once he saw his stall in the New York Islanders locker room stall. A freshly-pressed blue jersey with "Bloom" and the number one stitched onto the back, junior sized blue and orange gloves and an Islanders helmet hung in his spot, a mere six feet away from John Tavares. The eight-year-old beamed as he laced up his skates with his father's help.

"I almost started crying when I saw that he had his own little spot in the locker room with the boys, that really touched me," Brandon's father Brian said. "For Brandon to have a jersey and everything is amazing. He's going to talk about it forever."

On the Road with the Islanders

An inside look at the New York Islanders California road trip

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Beneath the stands at SAP Center, Jason Chimera stands hunched over outside the visitor's locker room. Soon he's joined by Mathew Barzal and goalie Thomas Greiss, who's flexing his glove and blocker as he prepares for what's going to be a 40-save performance. As the lights in the arena bowl dim and the pregame videos plays on the scoreboard, more teammates file out into the hallway, tapping shin pads, shaking hands and getting each other pumped up. 

Greiss leads them out towards the ice in single file. Some drop their hands back for a quick high-five as they turn the corner and walk through the tunnel. Aside from a few west coast Islanders fans cheering their entry into the still-dark rink, the team swims alone in the Shark Tank.

Isles Postgame: Kings 3, Islanders 2

Ladd and Barzal hit milestones, but Islanders fall in close game to Kings

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

The New York Islanders were inches away from forcing overtime on Sunday night, but ultimately fell 3-2 in regulation to the LA King at Staples Center. 

With 20 seconds to play John Tavares had the puck on his stick and a look at some open net, but sent a sharp-angled shot through the crease and just out the far side. It was a bang-bang play that LA's Jeff Carter or Derek Forbort may have got a piece of, but regardless, it was a frustrating end for the captain and his team, who dropped to 1-2-0 on their swing through California.
