Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The New York Islanders sauntered into Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night to face the rival New York Rangers with a collective swagger not seen in almost three decades. That they walked out of the venerable building attached to Penn Station with a 3-0 victory to cap a seven-game cross-country road trip really doesnt matter. Jack Capuanos club stood toe-to-toe with one of the hottest clubs in the National Hockey League, in what was probably the most meaningful game between both bitter rivals since Game 5 of the 1984 Patrick Division Semifinals, and look to remain affixed at the forefront of the battle for the Metropolitan Division crown for the remainder of the schedule. Winning was just the icing on the cake. Our focus and attitude is all about how we prepare, Capuano told the New York Times after finishing the road swing an impressive 5-2-0. Its all about character and accountability. This was a big game with a lot of media attention, and I thought we played well. We have a lot of hockey left. It started and ended with goaltending. Henrik Lundqvist withered at a key time under a 44-shot barrage. Jaroslav Halak, on the other hand, stopped 27 shots to record his sixth shutout of the season and post his 23rd victory this year, in the process becoming just the second Islanders crease guardian to blank the Rangers in Manhattan and the fifth in franchise history to hold their older brothers off the scoreboard. Venerable troublemaker Billy Smith had been the first and only to record a whitewash on the road, turning the trick way back on Dec. 17, 1975, a 26-save effort which fueled a 3-0 win. In between, Mark Fitzpatrick, Tommy Soderstrom and Rick DiPietro also blanked the Rangers in the comfort of Nassau Coliseum. In the middle happened to be a three-goal second period which provided Halak all the offense he needed. The goals came from an American collegian (Anders Lee of Notre Dame), a Russian who plied his trade in the KHL before coming to North America (Nikolay Kulemin) and a Dane who arrived in the NHL via his native Scandinavia (Frans Nielsen). I think it was just being a little bit more sure of ourselves, no hesitation, Islanders captain John Tavares said. We went out in the second and you could see us just getting our game going and starting to wear them down, making them have to defend. Eventually we got rewarded. Certainly its going to make a lot of people on Long Island happy [Wednesday] morning. Were excited about beating them. With Tavares and Kyle Okposo shut down, the balance in scoring came to the forefront. The Islanders currently boast 16 players who have recorded at least 10 points so far. All of that kept the Orange and Blue one point up on Pittsburgh for the division lead, leap-frogged the club over the Lightning into first place in the Eastern Conference, and might have finally erased any lingering notions of an eventual second-half nose dive. Oh yeah, and the Islanders could be the first team in the East to 30 wins if they are on the correct side of the scoreboard again, in Friday?s showdown with the Pens at Uniondale. Its far and away a season beyond all expectations for a club some pundits picked to only make the playoffs, and it?s a wildly successful one already for a team poised to bid farewell to the place it has called home for the last 42 years. At the midway point of 2014-15, the team once ridiculed for their Etch-a- Sketch coaching and GM rotations along with their now retro-cool Gortons Fisherman logo, has vaulted into the level of the all-time greats. New York hit the halfway mark tied with Tampa Bay -- the Atlantic Division leaders -- with the most wins in the Eastern Conference at 27. Their 27-13-1 record stands as the franchises second-best mark at the middle of any season with only the 1978-79 Patrick Division and Clarence Campbell Bowl winners ranking higher at 28 victories, and their 55 points marks the most accumulated since the 1981-82 squad under Al Arbour collected the same amount. Their opponents, the Broadway Blueshirts, were no slouches, either. Heading into the opening faceoff, Alain Vigneaults charges were riding a 13-1-0 streak, their best run of success since going unbeaten in 15 games (14-0-1) during the middle portion of the 1972-73 campaign, and one which vaulted them from the dregs of the division into prime playoff positioning, a full 11 points ahead of idle Philadelphia. In the end, the Islanders laid waste to any outcome as a result of that momentum, winning for the fifth time in their last six trips to the Worlds Most Famous Arena -- a string of success not found in the Islander history books since February of 2000 through November of 2002. A team once best known for its prowess in the playoffs beyond regulation has a bright young hero doing the same thing in the regular season. Tavares picked up his seventh career OT marker in last Friday nights 3-2 win against the Devils in Newark, extending his franchise record. Even though a five-minute extra session was only implemented league-wide at the end of the clubs dynastic run in 1983, thats something that Messrs. Bossy, Trottier, Gillies, Sutter, Goring, Potvin, Tonelli or Nystrom never came close to achieving during their distinguished careers. The Islanders march toward a franchise-record in victories (54, 1981-82) has been aided by an incredible 11-1 record so far in games decided beyond the first 60 minutes of play. Thats certainly worthy of confidence, to know you can outlast an opponent before sending them home unhappy. Both New York franchises renew hostilities three more times before the end of the regular season: Jan. 27, Feb. 16 and Mar. 10, all on Long Island. Even if the Rangers took a number and are able to recall how the Islanders beat them at home twice and by a combined 9-3 count already, will it matter? Capuanos kids are 15-9-1 on the road but are an equally-impressive 14-4-0 on home ice. Only Tampa (16) and Toronto (15) have produced more positive results in their respective arenas among fellow conference clubs. There will be garment rending and gnashing of teeth by die-hards once the Islanders leave the comfort of the Mausoleum and the suburbs for the flash of the Barclays Center and the lure of street cred in Brooklyn at the end of the season. Until then, the Islanders seem bent on giving their fans one last shot at puffing out their collective chests to claim local bragging rights which were theirs for a solid decade from the mid 1970s through the mid 1980s -- a feeling which is long overdue both on and off the ice. Matt Carpenter Jersey . Just ask last seasons Supporters Shield winners, the New York Red Bulls, who were resoundingly defeated last weekend by a rampant Vancouver Whitecaps in a match which produced two contenders for MLS Goal of the Week from Sebastian Fernandez and Pedro Morales. Willie McGee Jersey . According to the Globe and Mail, a decision between the NHL and the Players Association should come within the six months. "I can tell you, (a decision) shouldnt take all that long," NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told the Globe and Mail. http://www.cardinalsrookiestore.com/Cardinals-Mark-Mcgwire-Kids-Jersey/ . Seager had another triple, a home run and a double in a rare feat not seen in more than 40 years, leading Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners past the New York Yankees 10-2. "It was a weird play," Seager said of the triple in the fourth inning. Vince Coleman Jersey . His brother — Red Lake chiropractor Richard Radford — is en route to Sochi to cheer on his younger brother. "Ive been getting texts from Eric and he just says the atmosphere is amazing, its special,” he said. Orlando Cepeda Jersey . - Connor Brown and Dane Fox both scored in regulation and in the shootout, as the Erie Otters extended their win streak to 10 games by defeating the London Knights 4-3 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action.ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - Left tackle Bryant McKinnie and the Miami Dolphins had trouble handling the Buffalo Bills blitz during the game. And McKinnie and company had difficulty coming up with answers afterward, too, following a 19-0 loss on Sunday that put a dent in the Dolphins playoff chances. "Um," McKinnie said, beginning to laugh uncomfortably when asked what went wrong, "I dont know. I couldnt tell you." The patchwork offensive line — the Dolphins season-long weakness — gave up a season-worst seven sacks and was part of a unit that managed just 103 yards and six first downs against an AFC East rival that had little to play for after being eliminated from playoff contention a week earlier. "I dont know," added right tackle Tyson Clabo of a line thats surrendered a franchise season-worst 58 sacks. "Obviously that wasnt our goal to have that stat..." The Dolphins (8-7) had a three-game winning streak snapped and find themselves in a convoluted mix of four teams — Baltimore (8-7), San Diego (8-7) and Pittsburgh (7-8) — competing for the AFCs final playoff spot. Miami needs help while closing at home against the New York Jets next weekend. The Dolphins loss clinched the AFC East for New England. Buffalos blitz got to starter Ryan Tannehill on the third play from scrimmage. And the pass rush didnt stop until he was sacked a final time on his second-to-last snap of the game. In closing their home schedule, the Bills (6-9) won consecutive games for the first time since Weeks 2-3 of last season. "That was a pretty good beating," Bills defensive co-ordinator Mike Pettine said. "They were flying around. They were getting off the ball and they just looked a step faster than Miami did all day." Veteran defensive tackle Kyle Williams and rookie cornerback Nickell Robey had two sacks apiece. Mario Williams, Jerry Hughes and DaNorris Searcy added one each in helping Buffalo to its first shutout in over two years — and first at Ralph Wilson Stadium since a 21-0 win over Miami on Dec. 17, 2006. The seven sacks upped Buffalos total to 56 this season, breaking its previous high of 50 during a 14-game season in 1964. "Its a nice consolation for where we are," Kyle Williams said. "I think youve seen today potentially what we can do." The defence took the burden off a depleeted offence led by backup Thad Lewis starting in place of rookie EJ Manuel, out because of a swollen left knee.dddddddddddd And the Bills offence finished without its top three receivers. Rookie Marquise Goodwin had a right knee injury late in the first quarter. Fellow rookie Robert Woods was ejected for punching safety Reshad Jones in the facemask in the third quarter. Veteran starter Stevie Johnson was excused to be with his family following the death of his mother. Dan Carpenter essentially sealed the win by hitting a 45-yard field goal to cap the Bills second possession. Carpenter finished hitting all four attempts against his former team, and Fred Jackson had 111 yards of offence, including a 9-yard touchdown. "Im very proud of this team," rookie head coach Doug Marrone said. "It was an honour to be on that sideline and watch those guys perform." Lewis, who grew up in Miami, finished 15 of 25 for 193 yards and an interception. He improved to 2-2 this season, with both wins coming against the Dolphins. Miami crossed midfield only three times, converted just two of 14 third-down chances, and managed just six first downs, including two in the second half. Tannehill finished 10 of 27 for 82 yards and was briefly knocked out of the game with a left knee injury after Williams second sack early in the fourth quarter. Matt Moore took over and provided Miami a short-lived spark by completing a 50-yard pass to Brian Hartline. He followed by throwing an interception to Jim Leonhard. Though Tannehill said his knees fine, he wasnt pleased with the offences outing. "It wasnt one thing, it wasnt one area," Tannehill said. "Every aspect of the game, we failed to step up to the plate." NOTES: The Bills have three players with at least 10 sacks — Mario Williams (13), Kyle Williams (10 1/2) and Jerry Hughes (10) — for only the second time since 1995. And theyre the first NFL team with three since the 2000 Saints. ... The Dolphins were shut out for the first time since closing last season with a 28-0 loss at New England, and were swept by Buffalo. ... Tannehill has 3,709 yards passing to move into 10th on the Dolphins single-season list. The top-nine spots are held by Dan Marino. ... Marrone revealed after the game that DT Marcell Dareus was benched for the first quarter for violating undisclosed team rules.
