Johnny Boychuk (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision on Monday night.

Boychuk has missed the last two games with a lingering undisclosed ailment. The pregame warmup will probably reveal his status against Washington.
Dec 11 - 10:46 AM

Jaroslav Halak will be in goal for the Islanders on Monday against Washington.

Halak played well in Saturday's 3-1 loss to Boston with 30 saves on 32 shots. He was in the crease for a 4-3 loss to the Capitals on Nov. 2. Halak has gone 8-7-1 on the year with a 2.93 goals-against average and .905 save percentage in 17 previous games played.
Dec 11 - 10:43 AM

Shane Prince (ankle) has been taken off the injured reserve list.

Prince was then sent to the minors for a conditioning stint. Back in August, it was projected that he would be sidelined between four-to-six months after having ankle surgery, so it seems he was able to resume playing at the more optimistic end of that timetable.
Dec 10 - 12:27 PM

Thomas Hickey is dealing with an upper-body injury.

Hickey has been placed on the injured reserve list retroactive to Saturday. He can be ruled out of the Islanders' next three games as a result of this move.
Dec 10 - 12:25 PM

Anders Lee scored his 17th goal of the season as the New York Islanders dropped a 3-1 decision to the Boston Bruins on Saturday night.

Lee now has 17 goals and 29 points in 29 games played so far this season. The forward had three shots on goal and led his team's forwards with four hits, playing just under 17 minutes. He is a solid addition to any fantasy team.
Dec 9 - 11:54 PM

Jaroslav Halak turned aside 30 shots in the New York Islanders' 3-1 loss to the Boston Bruins on Saturday night.

Halak wasn't totally to blame as the Islanders' forwards couldn't seem to generate much to beat Rask at the other end, but the goaltender earns the loss regardless. His record falls to 8-7-1 on the season with a 2.93 goals-against average and a .905 save percentage.
Dec 9 - 11:51 PM

Scott Mayfield will be a healthy scratch in Saturday's game against the Boston Bruins.

Mayfield has two goals and five assists in 18 games this season. It's the third time in five games that he'll be scratched. Alan Quine will also watch the game from the press box.
Dec 9 - 6:52 PM

Dennis Seidenberg will be in the lineup Saturday night against the Bruins.

The veteran defenseman was a healthy scratch Thursday night against the Penguins. Seidenberg, who has only three assists in 10 games this season, will draw back in at the expense of Scott Mayfield.
Dec 9 - 10:54 AM

Johnny Boychuk (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Saturday's matchup against Boston.

Boychuk is dealing with a lingering injury that also kept him out of Thursday's contest. Dennis Seidenberg will suit up versus the Bruins and Scott Mayfield will be in the press box.
Dec 9 - 10:53 AM

Jaroslav Halak has been confirmed as the Islanders' starter for Saturday against Boston.

Halak has surrendered four goals in each of his last two outings, but he has picked up points in the standings for his team on both occasions (1-0-1). He has posted an 8-6-1 record with a 2.99 goals-against average and a .903 save percentage this season.
Dec 9 - 10:49 AM

Islander coach Doug Weight does not believe the injury to Johnny Boychuk is a serious one.

The undisclosed injury is a lingering one, not a new one. Boychuk is questionable for Saturday night's contest against Boston.
Dec 9 - 10:45 AM

The Islanders spent their entire practice on Friday just working on their penalty kill.

It's been a major problem for the Islanders this season as they rank 30th in the league with a 73.33% PK success rate. It hasn't helped matters that the Islanders lost Nikolay Kulemin (shoulder) for the season as he was one of their mainstays on the penalty kill. Since Kulemin was shutdown, the Islanders have killed off a mere 62.5% of their penalties. Casey Cizikas' (lower body) four-game absence also complicated things, but he was able to return on Thursday. The Islanders will see if their recent work pays off on Saturday against Boston.
Dec 9 - 5:29 AM

There is a 50-50 chance that Johnny Boychuk (undisclosed) will return on Saturday, per Islanders coach Doug Weight.

Boychuk missed Thursday's contest due to the ailment. He has three goals and eight points in 27 contests this season.
Dec 8 - 4:53 PM

Andrew Ladd registered an assist in the Islanders' 4-3 overtime loss to Pittsburgh Thursday night.

Ladd has seven goals and 14 points in 28 contests this season. It's not ideal production out of him, but at least it's an improvement from 2016-17 when he finished with a disappointing 23 goals and 31 points in 78 games.
Dec 8 - 5:02 AM

Jordan Eberle scored a goal in Thursday’s 4-3 overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Eberle’s tally at the 5:54 mark of the second frame tied the game at one. The Islanders forward has now found the back of the net in five of his team’s last seven contests, which is pretty impressive. Eberle now has 12 goals and 21 points in 28 games this season. Mathew Barzal and Brock Nelson also scored for the Isles in the defeat.
