Isles Ready to Compete With NHL’s Best

Lubomir Visnovsky

Coming into Saturday night’s battle at the old barn in Uniondale, the New York Islanders had lost three straight. They faced their first three-game losing streak since playing better than anyone in the NHL in November. Their 12-2 record was forgotten about because of three straight losses…well, at least by the media. “The media puts…

Jiggs McDonald’s Broadcast Schedule

Jiggs McDonald

Jiggs McDonald is synonymous with the Islanders and their Stanley Cup winning teams from the 1980s. We are still lucky enough to get to hear one of hockey’s all-time great broadcasters call the game for the Islanders from time to time. Tonight in St. Louis he will again be filling in for Howie Rose to give the play-by-play…

Marvin Jones on the Jets, Brooklyn Bolts

Marvin Jones

While covering the Brooklyn Bolts FXFL season finale on Friday, I had a chance to speak with former New York Jets linebacker and current Bolts linebackers coach Marvin Jones. “Shade Tree” reflected on the undefeated inaugural season in Brooklyn, the New York Jets debacle, Jameis Winston, Florida State, and more. Jones enjoyed a 4-0 season…

Rangers May Roll the Dice on Kaberle

Tomas Kaberle

According to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun, free agent defenseman Tomáš Kaberle will workout for the New York Rangers, who are desperate to solidify a depleted defense corps. In addition to missing captain Ryan McDonagh to a seperated shoulder, the Rangers are also down defenseman Dan Boyle (broken hand), Kevin Klein (bruised foot) and John Moore (five-game suspension). After…

Islanders Best Team In New York

Islanders

Don’t look now, but the New York Islanders are one of the best teams in the NHL in the first month of the season. Saturday, the top-scoring team in the NHL put on a goal scoring exhibition against a star-studded Dallas Stars team. The Isles topped the Stars 7-5 in what turned out to be…

Islanders Stumble, Fall to Maple Leafs

Jaroslav Halak

Islanders fans had to feel good as they left their seats following the first twenty minutes of last night’s game against the Maple Leafs at the Nassau Coliseum.  The Isles had regained a one goal lead shortly after the Maple Leafs had evened the score.  John Tavares notched a power play goal to get him to the…

Granderson Reflects on Mets 2014 Season

Curtis Granderson

As the Mets season came to a close Sunday with a win, the team fell short of 90 wins as Sandy Alderson proclaimed that he expected. The 2014 Mets were somewhat relevant in September at one point, creeping within 5.5 games back of the second wild card spot. In the end, it was their sixth…

Islanders Youth On Display at Training Camp

Isles Training Camp 2014

September is a great time of year. For the pure baseball fan – the playoffs are rapidly approaching- but for us New Yorkers, it will not be such a great experience this year. Week #2 in the NFL is this weekend, and football fans are getting in a frenzy.  The Jets and the Giants are…

The End of “Duck Dynasty” on Long Island?

Long Island Ducks

Yes – for the last two years, there has been a championship team on Long Island. I did say Championship. The Long Island Ducks have been the “Quack to Quack” champions of the Atlantic League, and judging by the attendance numbers (which have dropped by a large number), many have not seen them go for…

Jets Proud of their Hofstra Tradition

Head coach Rex Ryan speaks to the crowd at Hofstra last night.

The Jets first came to the Hofstra University campus for training camp back in 1968, where Long Island fans of the team grew up watching them for 40 years. In 2008, the Florham Park facility was built and the Jets moved their operations to New Jersey. When the Jets decided to move training camp to…

Another Change in the Islanders Ownership Guard

Charles Wang has reached an agreement to sell the New York Islanders.

For many fans of the Islanders – this is an announcement that has been in the making for years and years; especially for the Islander fans that want Mr. Wang on a platter, along with a General Manager as the dessert. This is the quote, thanks to the Islanders Web Site: UNIONDALE, NY (August 19,…

A Giant Overhaul: 2014 New York Giants Preview

New York Giants

The Giants had to make moves this offseason. The passing attack was too stale last year, the offensive line too old, the defensive line too banged up. Jason Pierre-Paul, arguably the Giants best player, played in only 11 games and recorded a measly 2 sacks. Eli Manning threw 18 touchdowns and 27 interceptions, by far the…
