The view from New York - LA Kings Insider


Anders Lee scores twice in Islanders’ win over Kings

“Weight didn’t hesitate when he took over for Capuano on Tuesday, telling Berube the next day that the young goaltender would be making his first start since Dec. 18 against the team that drafted him in 2009.

…Weight wanted his young backup to be prepared. If Berube had any rust, his old Kings pals worked it out of him by getting to pucks quicker than the Isles and putting some dangerous shots on net early.”

Why Doug Weight isn’t going to employ the hot goalie strategy

“Berube made a case for more playing time, making 34 saves in a win against his former team, his first win of the season. ‘He was outstanding,’ Weight said. ‘He kept us in the game.'”

Islanders riding high for new coach with second straight win

“The interim coach couldn’t ask for a better start, back-to-back victories over the Stars and Kings at Barclays Center. Two nights after a shutout, the Isles knocked off Los Angeles, 4-2, the difference being a pair of Anders Lee power-play goals.”

Islanders 4*, Kings 2 (EN): Lee scores twice and Berube beats his old team

“The Islanders had a couple decent opportunities throughout the period, including a little dipsy-doodle from Calvin de Haan but the first frame was all Los Angeles. This isn’t terribly surprising, though – the Kings under Darryl Sutter have been a possession juggernaut, while the Isles this season have been a black hole.”
