Lehner Conquering Demons and Competition

Robin Lehner may have signed a one-year free-agent contract with the New York Islanders last summer, but the 27-year-old Swede signed a much more important deal with himself. After being let go by the Buffalo Sabres, living through panic attacks, dealing with substance abuse and being diagnosed as bipolar with ADHD, PTSD and trauma, Lehner sought treatment to save himself, his family and his career. He made a pact to live a clean life. The turning point came on Mar. 29 when he asked for help fol...

Islanders Getting a Trotz Culture Change

Barry Trotz didn’t scan the rafters for the banner. Back in Washington, he never once looked up for the championship flag hanging high above the home ice of the Capitals. Yet when he turned around for the national anthem, Trotz said he saw the big white letters standing out on the red banner: “STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS 2018” around the Capitals logo. When the anthem was over, he turned back to the visitors’ bench and got back to work on trying to earn some more banners to hang — in New York. New Yo...

Goalie Announcements (Jan 22)

Night number two of three of Week Seventeen tonight and it's another small-ish schedule.  I think the aim will to try not to be in the Basement Dweller more than anything else this week.  There isn't enough games to get too excited about making that run to the Mover & Shaker, although one team has put up a good start... no one wants to be down in the basement this week. Three teams are opening [Author: Clayton Corley]

Corey Perry practices with Ducks for first time in 4 months

ANAHEIM — Corey Perry practiced with his Ducks teammates Tuesday for the first time since he felt something pop in his right knee during the pregame warmup before an exhibition game Sept. 24 against the Arizona Coyotes at Honda Center. He underwent surgery to mend cartilage and a ligament two days later. Perry said Tuesday he had been skating for the past “eight, nine, 10 days” with Larry Barron, the Ducks’ skating and skill development coach. It was hard work, grueling and mind-numbing activity...

NHL Rumors: Talbot, Matthews, Devils, Wild, More

In today’s rumor rundown, there is an update out of Toronto on the negotiations with Auston Matthews, a potential plan in place when it comes to the goaltending situation in Edmonton and speculation about the trade plans for the Minnesota Wild and New Jersey Devils. Auston Matthews Deal Getting Closer? While it’s been made clear by Mitch Marner’s representation that he likely won’t negotiate or sign an extension until after the season with Toronto, there is the potential Auston Matthews might....

Predators’ Laviolette Wins 600th Game

On Jan. 21, Nashville Predators head coach Peter Laviolette won his 600th regular-season game in the National Hockey League. It was also his 211th victory in his 379th game as head coach of the Predators. In a league that has been, and remains, filled with quality head coaches, one might think that winning 600 regular season games is common. That thought would be incorrect. With his 600th win, Peter Laviolette joined an exclusive coaching club. (AP Photo/David Zalubowski) Reaching the 600-win ...

Schedule Takes A Toll On The Chicago Blackhawks

from Mark Lazerus of The Athletic, I casually asked Jonathan Toews if he ever thought about the differences in travel playing in the Eastern Conference, particularly the New York area, versus the Western Conference, particularly Chicago, the second-easternmost city in the West. “Yup,” he said sharply, as if he had been waiting for this question all his life. “A lot.” Toews then beat me to the follow-up. “And from what I hear,” he continued, “Phoenix is getting added to our div...

Quite The Comeback For Robin Lehner

from Andrew Gross of Newsday, Robin Lehner never doubted he still could play hockey despite his battles with addiction and mental health issues. But he never envisioned his first season with the Islanders going this smoothly for him and so successfully for the team. “No, I was in a very dark place,” said Lehner, nearly 10 months sober, after making 19 saves for his third shutout in a 3-0 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday afternoon at NYCB Live’s Nassau Coliseum. “I didn’t see much ...

Islanders Blank Ducks for 5th Straight Win

UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Cal Clutterbuck scored twice in the first period and Robin Lehner made 19 saves as the New York Islanders downed the Anaheim Ducks 3-0 on Sunday for their fifth straight win. The victory was the 15th in 18 games for the Metropolitan Division-leading Islanders, who have surged past Washington and Columbus over the past month. The Islanders have one game remaining — Tuesday at Chicago — before the All-Star break. Clutterbuck opened the scoring at 4:50 of the first with ...

Ducks’ route to comeback attempt clogged up by Islanders’ defensive play

UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Once they got a two-goal lead, the New York Islanders shifted into defense-first mode for the better part of the final two periods of an eventual 3-0 victory Sunday over the Ducks. When they needed to make a push an attempt to get back into the game, the Ducks couldn’t do it. Coach Barry Trotz mastered that style of play for many seasons while coaching the Nashville Predators. He loosened the reins considerable while coaching the Washington Capitals, a far more offensively gift...

The Buying New York Islanders?

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, - ... The Islanders have a pretty fair collection of young assets courtesy of the Garth Snow regime. Expect Lamoriello to dangle them — maybe to rent Matt Duchene as immediate support for Mat Barzal, maybe to rent dangerous sniper Mark Stone, maybe to rent depth on defense by acquiring either Jake Muzzin or Alec Martinez. Maybe even both defensemen — or have you forgotten 2003, when the offense-needy Devils acquired defenseman Igor Tverdovsky and Ri...

Kings blown away by Avalanche in 7-1 debacle

DENVER — Mikko Rantanen scored two of Colorado’s franchise record-tying six second-period goals, Semyon Varlamov stopped 30 shots and the Avalanche routed the Kings 7-1 on Saturday. Colorado had six goals in a period for the first time since March 3, 1999, at Florida. Gabriel Landeskog, Tyson Barrie, Sheldon Dries and Colin Wilson also scored in the decisive period. Dries’ short-handed goal made it 5-0 and chased goalie Jonathan Quick. Carl Soderberg got things rolling with a goal in the first p...

Hockey Notes

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, - ... Babcock is supposed to be as good as it gets when it comes to coaching. It’s his time now to work some magic and demonstrate again why the Leafs invested in him so heavily. - What did missing training camp and signing late do for Johnny Gaudreau in 2016-17? Johnny Hockey scored just two goals in his first 14 games with the Flames that year. He went on to have his only sub-par scoring season in the NHL. He followed it up with an 84-point sea...

Hurricanes Trade Underperforming Rask for Niederreiter

While the hockey media universe talks about the likelihood that the Carolina Hurricanes will move Micheal Ferland, the team made a trade Thursday that few, if any, saw coming. The Hurricanes traded center Victor Rask to the Minnesota Wild for winger Nino Niederreiter. Hurricanes general manager Don Waddell said in a statement announcing the trade, “We’re excited to welcome a proven goal-scorer and veteran presence in Nino Niederreiter. We wish Victor the best moving forward and thank him for his...

What Arena Will Host The New York Islanders For The Playoffs?

from Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post, It’s hard to exactly feel bad for the Islanders, as their situation is a making of their own past. So even with the fact that they are back on stable ground, from the top of ownership to the bottom of the on-ice product, the shockwave from decades of business failure still has not subsided. That is why the NHL office, specifically the office of commissioner Gary Bettman, will be deciding where they might play home playoff games, The Backcheck ...

The New York Islanders Move Into First Place With A Win Over The Washington Capitals

from Andrew Gross of Newsday, Barry Trotz waved to the adoring fans at Capital One Arena as they stood to applaud him, saluted the Capitals’ bench (with Alex Ovechkin leaning over to ask how he liked the video tribute) and then touched his heart during the first-period appreciation of his four seasons in Washington, culminating with the Stanley Cup celebration last June. Then the Islanders put on a defensive clinic — keeping the shots to the outside and limiting the rebounds as a real...

The Buzzer: Greiss shutout gives Trotz win in return to Washington

There was probably a little pressure inside the Islanders dressing room prior to this one. Barry Trotz made his return to Washington for the first time since winning the Stanley Cup as the Capitals bench boss last June. Greiss was instrumental in that, stopping all 19 shots he faced as the Islanders leapfrogged both Washington and Columbus to move into first place in the Metropolitan Division.
