Isles Take a Point in 2-1 Shootout Loss to the Capitals

The New York Islanders and the Washington Capitals took the ice on Thursday night in Washington D.C. for their third and final meeting of the 2012 - 2013 season. With the Islanders being victorious in the first two matchups, the red-hot Caps would take this one in a 2-1 shootout.

After the Capitals scored at the end of the first period, it wouldn't be until the end of the third when Kyle Okposo tied the game 1-1. After an incredible showcase by goaltenders Evgeni Nabakov and Braden Holtby, Alexander Ovechkin would notch the lone shootout tally to send the Isles off with only a point.

Islanders Jet Past Winnipeg 5-2 At Home

As the season winds down, a playoff berth for the Islanders becomes more realistic with each passing day. For a team that has played so poorly during stretches this year, they still find themselves in the mix for a playoff spot.

The Islanders are playing meaningful games in April and shortened season or not, that is a big deal.

They took the ice on Tuesday night to face a Jets team that was handled by the Rangers the night before. The Islanders took a bus ride over from New Jersey and looked to remain hot. The excited Isles took the ice at home after beating the Devils just 24 hours prior.

Jarome Iginla: Like No Other

Jarome Iginla is a Penguin now.

it's bizarre to say the least to see him in anything but red, but the time had come for both the team and him to split ways.

Here is my story of Iginla

Game Preview: Flames vs Edmonton Oilers

The Battle of Alberta is re-ignited tonight with the Flames heading up north to meet their provincial rivals, the Edmonton Oilers. They are connected by the same highway but that is about the only thing these two have in common with each team heading in opposite directions in the standings. The Oilers currently sit in a tie for 10th, one point out of the playoffs, while the Flames sit 14th, just two points ahead of the 30th place Florida Panthers.

The Long Over-Due Trade

To see Jarome Iginla traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins should not come to a surprise to anyone, he deserves to win a Cup and as sad as it is to say, he was not going to win it as a Flame.

To be honest, this trade is long over-due, something that should have happened last year, if not earlier.

Game Preview: Flames vs Colorado Avalanche

It is the battle of the basement dwellers tonight at the Dome with the 14th place Flames playing host to the 15th place Colorado Avalanche. The Flames enter tonight’s game coming off a 2-0 loss to the Blackhawks last night in Chicago. The Avalanche on the other hand, come into Calgary on two days’ rest, not having played since Sunday when they went down to defeat to the Vancouver Canucks, 3-2.

Game Preview: Flames vs Chicago Blackhawks

The Flames head back on the road tonight, a place they have not been too fond of as of late, currently riding a 9-game win-less streak (0-8-1). Breaking the streak will not come easy heading into Chicago to face the league’s best team. The Blackhawks will finish off rare back-to-back home games after losing last night, 5-4 to the defending champs Los Angeles Kings.
