  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Cruises to win

    Sorokin stopped 22 of 23 shots in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Bruins.

    Sorokin played with a big lead early and often, as Kyle Palmieri scored a natural hat trick in the first period alone, and the Islanders followed that up with two more goals in the second. The only blemish to Sorokin's night was a Bruins' goal late in the second period. He stopped all three power-play shots he faced and finished with a solid .957 save percentage. Sorokin has won three straight outings to improve to 20-13-11 this season. Look for the Islanders to ride Sorokin as they push for a playoff spot.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Slated to start Saturday

    Sorokin is on track to start at home Saturday versus Boston, Stefen Rosner of NHL.com reports.

    Sorokin has won his last two straight, giving up five goals on 57 shots in road victories over Dallas and Detroit. He is 19-13-11 with a 3.11 GAA and a .909 save percentage. He has a tough matchup against Boston, which is tied with Florida for the top spot in the Eastern Conference with 84 points.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Moving up franchise record list

    Sorokin made 23 saves in a 5-3 win over the Red Wings on Thursday.

    Sorokin earned his 89th career win and passed Jaroslav Halak (88) for sixth most in franchise history. Sorokin is 5-1-2 in his last eight starts and 6-2-2 in 10 starts since Patrick Roy arrived on Long Islan as the team's new head coach. If anyone can help a goalie grow his game, Roy can. Sorokin continues to lead the NHL in shots against (1,443) and saves (1,312), but that might change in a positive way with improved team defense under Roy. And that means Sorokin's GAA and save percentage may improve, too.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Jolted by Bolts

    Sorokin stopped 17 of 20 shots in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Lightning. The fourth goal was an empty-netter.

    The Isles outshot the Bolts 34-21 on the afternoon, but Sorokin's teammates couldn't solve Andrei Vasilevskiy until the third period when they were already in a 3-0 hole.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Tending twine Saturday

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Hangs on for OT win

    Sorokin stopped 37 shots in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Penguins.

    As has been the case too often this season, the Islanders squandered a lead in the third period as the Pens scored twice in under a minute to erase a 4-2 deficit. Sorokin was able to force OT though after facing 16 shots in the final frame alone, and Adam Pelech rewarded the netminder with a win. Sorokin has just one regulation loss in his last eight starts, going 4-1-3, but his 2.97 GAA and .907 save percentage over that stretch are in line with an overall disappointing campaign.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: In goal Tuesday

    Sorokin will get the starting nod on the road against the Penguins on Tuesday, Stefen Rosner of NHL.com reports.

    Sorokin is undefeated in regulation in his last four contests, despite giving up six goals on 38 shots (.842 save percentage) against the Rangers on Sunday. The Russian netminder will look to bounce back versus a Penguins squad that is scoring just 2.87 goals per game -- though they still boast the services of Sidney Crosby.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Tough OT loss in Stadium Series

    Sorokin stopped 32 shots in Sunday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Rangers.

    The Islanders took a 4-1 lead early in the second period, but the Blueshirts rallied back with the help of three power-play goals to force OT, including two in the final five minutes of the third.

However, the 28-year-old netminder allowed the lone goal in the shootout to Tomas Tatar en route to a hard-luck 2-1 defeat. Sorokin's been sharp out of the All-Star break, going 2-0-1 while surrendering just five goals on 86 shots over his last three outings. Overall, he's 16-12-10 with a .911 save percentage and a 3.04 GAA on the season. The Islanders are off until Sunday when they host the Rangers.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Gets starting nod

    Sorokin wasn't tested much in his last start, but he still did enough to pick up a victory, turning aside 18 of 20 shots en route to a 6-2 win over the Lightning on Thursday. He'll try to extend his personal winning streak to three games in a favorable home matchup with a struggling Seattle team that's lost four of its last five contests.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Picks up win over Lightning

    Sorokin stopped 18 of 20 shots in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Lightning.

    This was Sorokin's third win in his last four outings. The Lightning didn't have much of an offense in this contest, though Sorokin received ample support despite a rather pedestrian showing. The 28-year-old has given up between two and five goals in each of his last 11 games, going 4-6-1 in that span. For the season, he's at 16-12-9 with a 3.10 GAA and a .910 save percentage through 37 appearances. The Islanders host the Flames in a matinee game Saturday.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Slated to start Thursday

    Sorokin is set to start at home against Tampa Bay on Thursday, according to Stefen Rosner of The Hockey News.

    Sorokin saved 34 of 36 shots in a 3-2 win over Toronto on Monday. He improved to 15-12-9 with a 3.13 GAA and a .910 save percentage in 36 appearances in 2023-24. Sorokin will attempt to build off that strong performance Thursday, though Tampa Bay, which ranks ninth offensively this year with 3.43 goals per game, figures to be a difficult adversary.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Sharp in win

    Sorokin stopped 35 of 37 shots in Monday's 3-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Sorokin allowed goals to Mitchell Marner and John Tavares, but a quick response from the Islanders each time helped them earn the win. This was Sorokin's first action since Jan. 23 -- he was rested for two games heading into the All-Star break. The 28-year-old struggled with a .902 save percentage over 11 contests in January, but he should be able to settle into a less intense workload, with Semyon Varlamov back from injury. Sorokin is at 15-12-9 with a 3.13 GAA and a .910 save percentage over 36 appearances this season.
