Rosner Wrap: Islanders Return 3 to Bridgeport, Penguins Need a Goalie?



New York Islan

It’s officially the NHL All-Star Break for the New York Islanders. They’ll be back in action on Feb. 6 at the Philadephia Flyers, with puck drop set for 7 PM ET.

On Sunday, the New York Islanders made a few roster moves, as they optioned forwards Simon Holmstrom and Aatu Räty, along with defenseman Samuel Bolduc back to to the AHL. The Bridgeport Islanders play two games on Feb. 3 and Feb. 4, with the All-Star Game on Feb. 5 in which Bolduc will be attending.


With back-to-back wins heading into the 2023 All-Star break, the New York Islanders have put themselves just two points back of the Pittsburgh Penguins, who sit in the second wild-card spot. Here’s what was on your mind in the latest Islanders mailbag.

The Islanders entered their break with a 2-1 overtime win over the Vegas Golden Knights thanks to a Mathew Barzal overtime snipe.

Relive Semyon Varlamov’s glorious paddle save against the Golden Knights, which turned out o be critical in the Islanders’ overtime win.


Washington Hockey Now: The Washington Capitals, who are three points ahead of the New York Islanders and in the top wild-card spot, are struggling and their 5-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sunday night reiterated the situation that the team is currently in.

Boston Hockey Now: The Boston Bruins dropped their third straight game for the first time this season, as they were taken down by the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday night.

Detroit Red Wings: If the Detroit Red Wings made a list after the All-Star break, and they’re checking it twice. What would be on it?

Pittsburgh Hockey Now: With Tristan Jarry hurt and Casey DeSmith playing inconsistent, could the Pittsburgh Penguins be on the hunt for a goaltender at the 2023 NHL Trade Deadline?

Philly Hockey Now: With a new, hard-to-please coach and three of their best players sidelined this season, it hasn’t been easy for the Philadelphia Flyers. But somehow, they go into the All-Star break at “hockey .500” and only six points out of an Eastern Conference playoff spot. Bravo, says Sam Carchidi.
