  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Lights lamp twice Saturday

    Nelson scored two goals in Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Rangers.

    Both tallies came in the second period, giving the Islanders a 2-1 lead that slipped away late. Nelson had found the back of the net only once over the prior 16 games, but he's still had another strong season while producing his third straight 30-goal campaign, collecting 32 goals and 65 points in 80 contests.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Falls to Blueshirts in shootout

    Sorokin stopped 41 shots in regulation and overtime and one of three shootout attempts in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Rangers.

    The Islanders haven't quite clinched a playoff spot yet, and while Sorokin did his best to try and get his team an extra point in the standings, he wasn't able to deny Artemi Panarin in the clutch. The 28-year-old netminder is 2-0-1 over his last three starts, allowing five goals on 89 shots (.944 save percentage) as he tries to regain his peak form ahead of the postseason. Semyon Varlamov has been hot down the stretch, so it remains to be seen which goalie gets the nod for the postseason opener if the Islanders hold onto a playoff spot.
