Postgame Notebook: Islanders 2, Devils 0

Bellows and Lee score as Greiss and Gibson combine for shutout win over Devils

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

The New York Islanders shut out the New Jersey Devils 2-0 on Thursday night at Barclays Center, improving to 2-2-0 in four preseason contests. 

Kieffer Bellows and Anders Lee scored power-play goals for the Islanders, while Thomas Greiss (25 saves) and Christopher Gibson (11 saves) combined for the shutout. Bellows opened the scoring late in the first period, while Lee added the insurance at 12:21 of the third. Keith Kinkaid stopped 25-of-27 shots for the Devils.

"It always takes a few games to figure things out and get your legs under you and every game you start to feel better and better whether that's with the systems or timing or positioning down," Lee said. "Tonight we had an off start, but we worked through it, worked hard and were tougher to play against in the latter half of the game and it showed in the third period. We played with a one-goal lead and we held it."

Pulock Poised For Big Year

Ryan Pulock looking to build off breakout year and further expand his role with Islanders

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Over 30 years later, Barry Trotz can still remember scouting Dave Pulock. 

This was back in the mid 1980s, when Trotz was coaching in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League. He made a pitch, but didn't land Pulock and maybe that's why he remembers him - one of the ones that got away. 

"A real solid, underrated defenseman," Trotz recalled. "Was really strong and can play against anybody, but a lot of people didn't know who he was."

A pause. 

"That sort of sounds like Ryan."

Boychuk Helping, Housing Quenneville

David Quenneville stayed with Johnny Boychuk ahead of Islanders rookie camp

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Johnny Boychuk is trying to show David Quenneville the ropes around New York Islanders training camp, but it's really the least he can do for family. 

Boychuk is Quenneville's uncle - through marriage - and is looking out for the Isles 2016 seventh-rounder, who is slated to play his first pro season this year. 

After skating, training and barbecuing together in Edmonton this summer, Boychuk invited Quenneville to come stay at his house in Garden City in late August and join the Islanders in their informal skates before rookie camp.

The Islanders drop a 5-1 decision to the Flyers in third meeting of the preseason

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."

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."

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.
