Thomas Greiss made 28 saves on 30 shots in a 5-2 victory over the Kings on Thursday night.

The 30-year-old improves to 15-6-2 this season with a 2.24 goals against average and .929 save percentage. Greiss is enjoying a career season in virtually every meaningful stat category so far.

John Tavares potted a goal and an assist in the Isles' 5-2 win over Los Angeles on Thursday night.

It was Tavares' fourth straight game with at least a point. Though the 25-year-old's stats are a bit lower this season than in past years, he now has nine points in six February games, totaling 43 points in 50 contests.
Feb 11 - 10:14 PM

Marek Zidlicky will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Los Angeles Kings.

The Islanders are opting to ice the same lineup they used in their 3-2 shootout win over the Blue Jackets on Tuesday. That means that Jean-Francois Berube and Steve Bernier will also watch from the press box.

Thomas Greiss will start for the Islanders on Thursday.

It will be Greiss' second start in three games. He has a 2.26 GAA and .929 save percentage in 22 contests in 2015-16.

The New York Islanders are reportedly not engaging in contract talks for Kyle Okposo.

Okposo is set to be an unrestricted free agent this summer and is due for a big raise over his current $2.8 million cap hit. The silence is making it increasingly more likely that he'll end up getting paid elsewhere though. Perhaps the Islanders will even deal him before the deadline rather than avoid losing him for nothing over the summer, but given that the Islanders are in the hunt for a playoff spot, any trade likely wouldn't be a veteran for prospects-styled move.

Eric Boulton's undisclosed injury is related to his upper-body.

Boulton last played on Dec. 12 and we've been given no reason to believe his return is imminent. At this point you should regard him as being out indefinitely.
Feb 10 - 9:17 AM

Jaroslav Halak turned aside 29 of 31 shots in a 3-2 shootout win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The 30-year-old now sports a 13-11-4 record to go along with a 2.27 goals-against-average and a .918 save percentage. Halak is 3-5-1 in his last 9 starts. Over that same span, Halak has allowed three or more goals five times.
Feb 9 - 11:45 PM

Anders Lee scored his eighth goal of the season in a 3-2 shootout win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Lee tied the game at 2-2 early in the third period on the power play. The 25-year-old has eight goals and 23 points in 52 games this season, including four points in his last 10 games.
Feb 9 - 11:35 PM

Marek Zidlicky and Steve Bernier will be scratched from Tuesday's match with Columbus.

Through 43 games in this, his final NHL season, Zidlicky has posted just three goals and 14 points with 52 blocks. Not exactly the kind of send off he or the Islanders were hoping for.

Jaroslav Halak will be in goal for the Islanders against Columbus.

He hasn't played well in his last three outings and he was pulled Saturday versus Detroit. Halak will try to get back on track against a Blue Jackets team that has been playing fairly well lately.
Feb 9 - 5:47 PM

John Tavares believes the Islanders should have scored more than eight goals in Sunday's 8-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers.

Tavares scored a goal and two assists in the game, but he wasn't satisfied with his team's output. "You’re not going to get eight many nights," Tavares said. "That said, we should’ve had a few more. We want to get to doing some of the offensive things we were doing last season that made us successful."
Feb 8 - 9:15 AM

Johnny Boychuk scored in Sunday's blowout win over the Edmonton Oilers.

Boychuk got the party started, as he opened the scoring with a slap shot from the point. This was the 32-year-old's second game back from injury after he missed 11 games because of an upper-body injury. He has four goals and 15 points in 40 games in 2015-16. The Islanders defense is much better with him than without him.
Feb 8 - 9:11 AM

Nick Leddy picked up a trio of helpers during Sunday's 8-1 win over the Oilers.

Quite the game for Leddy as his production has been missing from the Islanders' blue line this season. He's now up to just 20 assists and 23 points, a far cry from his 10 goals and 37 points a year ago.
Feb 7 - 6:33 PM

John Tavares scored his third three-point game of the season during Sunday's 8-1 win over the Oilers.

With a goal and two assists, Tavares is now up to 19 goals and 40 points on the year. Or about half of what he produced last season when he nearly won the scoring title.
Feb 7 - 6:31 PM

Frans Nielsen picked up a pair of assists during Sunday's 8-1 win over Edmonton.

The veteran Islander center now has 18 assists and 33 points on the season. Not quite the production we've come accustomed to, unfortunate.
