Good morning peeps. The New York Islanders are back in action at 3:30 ET today as they face the Winnipeg Jets in Manitoba. Here’s your New York Islanders and NHL stories as we are now six days away from the 2023 NHL Trade Deadline.


As the New York Islanders continue their playoff push, Noah Dobson is going to need to raise his defensive game, as there’s no room for error.

Per a league source, Patrick Kane has “no interest” in joining the New York Islanders, and that makes sense.


Pittsburgh Hockey Now: The Pittsburgh Penguins threw 48 shots at St. Louis goalie Jordan Binnington at Enterprise Center Saturday. It wasn’t until the last of those, by Bryan Rust at 1:16 of overtime, got past him that the 3-2 victory that ended their four-game losing streak was secure.

Montreal Hockey Now: Montreal Canadiens prospect Sean Farrelll has been tearing up the NCAA of late, garnering MVP-level attention and looking more NHL-ready by the day.

Washington Hockey Now: Garnet Hathaway is already taking pages out of Brad Marchand’s book, as the newest member of the Boston Bruins appears to have made his own upgrades to his equipment following his trade from the Washington Capitals using a can of spray paint.

Florida Hockey Now: As the horn sounded, officially putting an end to another Florida Panthers loss — this one 3-1 to the Buffalo Sabres — Matthew Tkachuk went after Jeff Skinner along the half wall and appeared ready to throw down with anyone who wanted to dance. It was frustration, plain and simple.

San Jose Hockey Now: Joe Thornton dodged the question as if I were a defenseman trying to contain him behind the net on the power play. “Joe, what’s the future hold for you?” Here’s his answer.

LA Hockey Now: It’s no secret that the Los Angeles Kings‘ second line hasn’t been the dominant force it was down the stretch last season. But maybe they figured things out against the Islanders.
