Islanders Record: 5-12-5


On Thursday, Dec. 2, the Rangers take on the Islanders at the Nassau Coliseum in the first game of a home-and-home series. The Rangers, coming off a tough home loss to the Penguins on Monday night, look to get back to their winning ways against their closest rivals. The Islanders have had a trying season thus far, landing them in last place in the entire NHL with only 15 points. One of their five wins, however, came against the Rangers on Oct. 11. The Islanders will definitely be looking to replicate that victory, especially in a season where wins have been hard to come by.

Forward Marian Gaborik has been hot for the Rangers, scoring at least a point in five of his last seven games. He has also historically been productive against the Islanders, scoring four goals and four assists against them since joining the Rangers last season.

The Islanders have not played since Friday, when they shut out New Jersey for their first win since Oct. 21. The Islanders had been struggling through a 14-game losing streak before finally breaking through for the victory. Franchise goaltender Rick DiPietro had 29 saves, good for his 16th career shutout. This win could be the turning point for the Islanders’ season, or at least a good starting point to bring them out of the trench in which  they have been floundering.

Rangers’ captain Chris Drury remains out with injury, as well as fellow veteran forward Vinny Prospal. The Islanders are suffering from a slew of injuries: forward Kyle Okposo and defensemen Jack Hillen, Milan Jurcina, Andrew MacDonald, Mike Mottau, and Mark Streit are all out with various injuries, and captain Doug Weight is listed as day-to-day.

The Rangers should be able to take the home-and-home from this decimated Islanders team and start again on a winning streak. But this game, as all other Rangers-Islanders match-ups, should be filled with intensity and excitement, so be sure to watch!
