  1. Being a leafs fan everyone may be angry with you..lol
  2. It’s looking like the Battle of New York will soon get a Russian twist. It seems the Islanders will be getting long-awaited netminder Ilya Sorokin for the start of the 2020-21 season, as he reportedly chose not to re-sign with CSKA of the KHL and plans to sign his entry-level contract with the Islanders once his current deal expires April 30. Sorokin will then come to the Big Apple, where friend and current Rangers goalie Igor Shesterkin burst onto the scene this season after leaving the KHL. This is according to a report from Igor Eronko, who covers the KHL for Sport-Express. The Islanders had no immediate response to the news as the NHL remains in a “pause” due to the coronavirus pandemic. But Islanders team president Lou Lamoriello had previously said he expected Sorokin to be here for the 2020-21 season. Part of that belief likely swayed Lamoriello to sign Semyon Varlamov last offseason to a bloated four-year, $20 million deal. Varlamov, 31, is a fellow Russian who is considered a role model for Sorokin (and Shesterkin), and has had an up-and-down first season with the Islanders. But with goalie Thomas Greiss in the final year of his contract, there should be ample opportunity for Sorokin if he chooses to come over. It’s possible Lamoriello would sign another veteran to a short-term deal to take some pressure off Sorokin in his first year, much the way Shesterkin started his career with AHL Hartford before taking over as the Blueshirts’ presumptive No. 1 once he was called up in January. The Islanders can only hope it works out that well, as Shesterkin won 10 of his first 12 NHL starts, with a 2.52 goals-against average and a .932 save percentage, before he fractured his rib in a car accident Feb. 24. The Islanders took Sorokin in the third round (No. 78 overall) of the 2014 draft, and he was the playoffs MVP while leading his KHL team to the 2019 championship. Set to turn 25 years old on Aug. 4, Sorokin never had worse than a 1.61 goals-against average in a league that has very little competitive balance. With the resumption of this season uncertain, it seems that the next time the Islanders take the ice, Sorokin could be in their net. The club is set to play all of next season at the Coliseum before moving into their new arena at Belmont Park for the 2021-22 season. [Hidden Content]
  3. Ilya Sorokin recorded a pair of shutouts last week, one to close the KHL regular season and another to open the KHL playoffs. Ilya Sorokin picked up his ninth shutout of the season for CSKA Moscow as they blanked HC Sochi 6-0 on Feb. 27. The Isles' 2014 third rounder (78th overall) improved his record to 26-10-3 with a 1.50 goals against average and a save percentage of .935.
  4. he got rocked buti thik the hit was not ment for the head,
  5. In just his second NHL game, Bellows buried his first-career goal, and then went on to score his second goal of the night, which wound up being the game-winner. "That was a pretty special moment," Bellows said. "I was pretty speechless at the time and didn't know what to do. Once I got back to the bench it was forget about it, move on and focus on the next shift." While the Isles had a rocky first period, Bellows showcased his sharp release. Bellows had two looks on net, including one crisp wrist shot on the fly that got Quick to make a lateral slide. Bellows earned his first NHL recall on Feb. 3 after showcasing a tremendous effort and leading the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in goals (16) and points (24). For the second game, Bellows has played on the wing of the Isles third line consisting of Brassard and Dal Colle and is making a sturdy case for coach Trotz to keep him there.
  6. Barzal was 0.402 of a second behind McDavid last season. Coming into the contest this year there was no indication that Barzal could de-thrown McDavid. But with a 13.175 lap, Batzal edged Connor McDavid by the finest of margins. He beat out McDavid by 0.040 of a second.
  7. Ilya Sorokin has accomplished just about everything he can in the KHL. The New York Islanders 2014 third-round selection has been putting up video game numbers in the KHL for a half-decade at this point. Yesterday, Sorokin recorded his 55th career shutout in the KHL. That brings him to a .934 save percentage and a 1.54 goals against average on the season.
  8. set to report to The Bridge After over three months away from the team, winger Joshua Ho-Sang is returning to the Islanders and will head to their AHL affiliate in Bridgeport
  9. Ilya Sorokin doesn't even consider an extension with CSKA at the moment. The earliest he would look into the offered terms is March. They would be shocking but I don't think it makes him stay Over the last five years in the KHL, Sorokin has averaged a .937 save percentage and a 1.40 goals against average. The guy is the best goalie in the world outside of the NHL.
  10. For the first time in franchise history, the New York Islanders have picked up a point in 16 straight games. None of the Al Arbour dynasty era teams were able to accomplish this feat, just those "due for a regression" Barry Trotz Islanders. Unbelievable. It's been 41 days now without a regulation loss, going back to October 11, and the Islanders are 15-0-1 over that span. Somehow they still aren't in first, thanks to Washington, but they are knocking on the doorstep with games in hand.
  11. It's been a bit of a slow news week thus far for New York Islanders fans. But Tuesday, KHL reporter Igor Eronko tweeted that CSKA goalie, and Islanders prospect, Ilya Sorokin has intentions of playing in the NHL next season.
  12. Ilya Sorokin made 21 saves on Saturday for his third shutout of the season to help CSKA remain in first place of the KHL with a 16-3-0 record. In 11 games this season, Sorokin has gone 9-1-1 and registered 1.25 goals against average and a save percentage of .947.
