Game Recap: Islanders 7, Rangers 5

Anthony Beauvillier records first-career hat trick as Islanders beat Rangers

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Anthony Beauvillier's first-career hat trick was the exclamation point on a night where the New York Islanders continued their recent dominance over the New York Rangers. 

The Isles 7-5 win at Barclays Center on Thursday was their eighth straight win over their arch rivals - a franchise record. The Islanders also improved to 12-1-0 in their last 13 games against the Rangers and a perfect 7-0-0 vs the Blueshirts in Brooklyn.

Beauvillier (3G, 1A), Valtteri Filppula (3A) and Leo Komarov (1G, 1A) powered the Isles offense, while Brock Nelson, Anders Lee and Cal Clutterbuck also scored for the Islanders. Thomas Greiss made 36 saves in the win, as the Isles improved to 7-0-0 vs divisional opponents for the first time in franchise history.

GAME NOTES | ISLES DAY-TO-DAY | MORNING SKATE


The New York Islanders and New York Rangers always play for pride, but there's a little more on the line when the arch rivals meets on Thursday night at Barclays Center. 

The Isles and Rangers are tied with 20 points apiece and currently hold the second and third seeds in the Metropolitan Division. It's too early to be a make-or-break game for either side, but in an ultra-tight division, it's a chance to create a little separation.

Game Recap: Islanders 5, Canucks 2

Tom Kuhnhackl scores twice as the Islanders beat the Canucks in Brooklyn

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

The New York Islanders got back in the win column on Tuesday night, beating the Vancouver Canucks 5-2 at Barclays Center. 

Tom Kuhnhackl recorded his first-career, two-goal game, while Josh Bailey, Jordan Eberle (1G, 1A) and Cal Clutterbuck each lit the lamp for the Islanders, who busted out of a three-game winless streak. Brock Nelson and Mathew Barzal finished the game with two assists apiece, while Thomas Greiss made 22 saves in the win. Brendan Leipsic and Jake Virtanen scored for the Canucks. Jacob Markstrom made 29 in the loss. 

"There's different times of the year, just because it's not April doesn't mean it's not a must-win," Clutterbuck said of ending the losing streak. "You don't want to give a five-game winning streak back. We knew that today we had to dig in and win it. Teams in our division have been winning games, so you can't underestimate the value of those points."

Game Recap: Panthers 4, Islanders 2

The Islanders fall in regulation for a second straight game in loss to Panthers

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

After recording points in seven straight games, the New York Islanders have suffered back-to-back regulation losses after falling 4-2 to the Florida Panthers on Saturday night. 

Mathew Barzal and Brock Nelson had the Islanders ahead 2-1 in the second period, but the Panthers responded with three goals in the final 21 minutes of the contest to upend the Isles. 

"It's one of those games where l've kind of let it slip again and that's what makes it frustrating," captain Anders Lee said. "Right now we're facing a little bit of a tough stretch."

Game Recap: Lightning 4, Islanders 2

The Islanders seven-game point streak is snapped by the Lightning

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

The New York Islanders were left frustrated on Thursday night, as they watched a solid effort against the NHL's top team come undone in the final 90 seconds in a 4-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning. 

Tied 2-2 after Josh Bailey's second goal of the night, Tyler Johnson slipped behind the Isles defense, tipping in Nikita Kucherov's cross-ice feed with 1:26 to go. It negated a third-period comeback, Bailey's two-goal night and the fact that the Isles controlled large portions of the contest. The loss also snapped the Islanders seven-game point streak.

The Islanders bring a seven-game point streak (5-0-2) into Thursday's action, but Monday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Montreal Canadiens served as a wakeup call. After arriving in Tampa a day early, the Isles look to refocus for a formidable challenge against a lethal Lightning squad that sits atop the Eastern Conference.

NYI Recap: Cizikas scores twice in shootout loss

Casey Cizikas found the back of the net twice and Thomas Greiss made 32 saves, but the Islanders fell to the Canadiens in a shootout, 4-3

  • 05:13 •

The New York Islanders five-game winning streak was snapped on Monday night in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Montreal Canadiens at Barclays Center. 

The consolation prize - a single point for a shootout loss - extended the team's point streak to seven games, but that felt a little hollow in the immediate aftermath, as the Isles mulled over how a 3-1 lead got away from them. 

"We were awful," Head Coach Barry Trotz said bluntly. "The right team won tonight. That was our worst game of the year… We felt like we gave up a point."
