Islanders-Lightning Game 4 Off Day: Hickey, Drouin unscathed; Carle, Condra close; Pulock, Strome on outside

Best guess after Thursday's practice? Same* Isles lineup for Game 4. *Your guessage may vary. If you're reading tea leaves from Thursday's practices during the second off day before Friday's Game 4 between the New York Islanders and Tampa Bay Lightning, you can expect minor changes for the Lightning and status quo for the Isles. Hit Survivors Both Thomas Hickey (from Brian Boyle) and Jonathan Drouin (from Hickey) were on the receiving end of big hits during Game 3, but neither is expected to miss any time as both were practicing and reported feeling fine on Thursday.

Thomas Hickey: Overachiever at heart of Islanders' playoff run

To be fair, some smart hockey people always did envision an impressive spring like this from Thomas Hickey. The Kings did pick him fourth overall in the 2007 draft, attracted by the size of his heart more than his frame (generously listed as 6 feet, 189 pounds). They did not mind that he was rather small for an NHL defenseman. They had bulk elsewhere, such as their hulking forward prospect, Brian Boyle.

Thomas Hickey's dad is all smiles

Denis Hickey sat perched on the bleachers at Iceworks, studiously tracking his son Thomas as he zipped around the rink. He watched all of the Islanders, really, because he knows the reason they've gotten this far is because of how well they work together, how Thomas knows where John Tavares is going to be before he even gets there, and how important strong relationships are during the playoffs.

Thomas Hickey has ‘blackout’ after biggest goal of his life

It didn’t take long for Thomas Hickey to top the biggest goal of his career. Less than two weeks ago, the defenseman clinched the Islanders a playoff spot with an overtime goal against the Capitals, but the 27-year-old could barely process the magnitude of his overtime game-winning goal Sunday night to give the Islanders a...

The Islanders have a new home — with ear-blistering energy

Old Nassau Coliseum was built for hockey, and the noise level could be deafening. Barclays Center, a Brooklyn meeting place of suburban and urban, was not built for hockey. Of course, there isn’t a ballpark, stadium or arena that isn’t built for a team that plays with heart and fight, especially around here. Most of...
