  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Expected starter for Thursday

    Sorokin is set to start at home against Carolina on Thursday, per Andrew Gross of Newsday.

    Sorokin had a 25-19-12 record, 3.01 GAA and .908 save percentage in 56 regular-season appearances this season. Semyon Varlamov was in net for the first two contests of the Islanders' playoff series and initially appeared to be the projected starter for Game 3 after being the first goaltender off the ice following Wednesday's morning skate, but coach Patrick Roy indicated that New York will make a change in goal. Carolina has a 2-0 series lead and has outscored the Islanders 8-4.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Busy to end regular season

    Sorokin stopped 40 shots in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Penguins.

    The 28-year-old goalie will take some momentum into the postseason. Sorokin made 40 or more saves in each of his last two starts, and he's gone 3-0-1 over his last four appearances while giving up nine goals on 133 shots (.932 save percentage). He'd been splitting work again with Semyon Varlamov to close out the regular season though, and Varly has won five straight starts of his own while posting a .945 save percentage. As a result, Varlamov seems to be the favorite to get the nod between the pipes Saturday when the Isles begin their first-round series in Carolina.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Leaves ice first Wednesday

    Sorokin was the first goalie off the ice Wednesday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports, indicating he'll be in goal at home against Pittsburgh.

    With the Isles locked into the third seed in the Metropolitan Division, the team will go with Sorokin on Wednesday. That points to Semyon Varlamov being the presumptive starter for Game 1 of the postseason, which shouldn't come as a surprise considering he went 7-1-0 in eight games down the stretch. For his part, Sorokin did play in 55 games for the team this year and could jump into action in the playoffs if Varlamov struggles.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Falls to Blueshirts in shootout

    Sorokin stopped 41 shots in regulation and overtime and one of three shootout attempts in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Rangers.

    The Islanders haven't quite clinched a playoff spot yet, and while Sorokin did his best to try and get his team an extra point in the standings, he wasn't able to deny Artemi Panarin in the clutch. The 28-year-old netminder is 2-0-1 over his last three starts, allowing five goals on 89 shots (.944 save percentage) as he tries to regain his peak form ahead of the postseason. Semyon Varlamov has been hot down the stretch, so it remains to be seen which goalie gets the nod for the postseason opener if the Islanders hold onto a playoff spot.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Starting on Saturday

    Sorokin will guard the road crease Saturday against the Rangers, per Andrew Gross of Newsday.

    Sorokin was excellent in his last start, stopping 25 of 27 shots in a 4-2 win over Columbus on Thursday. The 28-year-old has seen his numbers drop a bit but has still been solid this season, recording a .907 save percentage and a 24-19-11 record in 54 appearances. He will have a tough matchup against the Rangers, who are 25-12-4 at home this year.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Snags win in Columbus

    Sorokin turned aside 25 shots in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Both goals against Sorokin came in the first period, and the 28-year-old netminder shut Columbus down the rest of the way to help the Isles move back into a playoff spot. The streaky Sorokin has won two straight starts while allowing three goals on 46 shots, but that comes on the heels of six straight losses. New York might need him to stay sharp if it's going to stay ahead of Detroit, Washington and Pittsburgh in the race for the final postseason berth in the Eastern Conference.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Gets nod Thursday

    Sorokin was first off the ice at morning skate, signifying he will guard the visitors crease against the Blue Jackets on Thursday, per Ethan Sears of the New York Post.

    Sorokin was solid in his last start Tuesday, stopping 18 of 19 shots in a 2-1 win over Chicago. The 28-year-old has put together a solid season, recording a .907 save percentage and a 23-19-11 record in 53 starts. He will have a favorable matchup in what is essentially a must-win home game for the Isles, as the Blue Jackets are 10-20-7 on the road this year.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Ends losing streak vs. Chicago

    Sorokin stopped 18 of 19 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Blackhawks.

    After allowing a goal to Jason Dickinson in the first period, Sorokin rebounded to blank Chicago over the final two frames, earning a one-goal victory to snap a six-game losing streak. Semyon Varlamov had started New York's last three contests after Sorokin struggled to an .881 save percentage during his recent skid. Overall, the 28-year-old Sorokin improved to 23-19-8 with a .907 save percentage and a 3.04 GAA this season. It remains to be seen who the Isles will turn to in net when they visit Columbus on Thursday.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Starting Tuesday

    Sorokin will protect the home net Tuesday against Chicago, Stefen Rosner of NHL.com reports.

    Sorokin has surrendered 21 goals on 176 shots during his six-game losing streak. He will get the second half of the Islanders' back-to-back after Semyon Varlamov plays against Philadelphia on Monday. Sorokin has a 22-19-11 record this season with a 3.07 GAA and a .906 save percentage through 52 games played. Chicago sits 32nd in the league with 2.22 goals per contest this campaign, so it's a favorable matchup for Sorokin to attempt to get back on track.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Losing streak continues

    Sorokin allowed three goals on 29 shots in a 4-0 loss to New Jersey on Sunday. The fourth goal was an empty-netter.

    Sorokin is mired in a six-game losing streak, during which he has posted a 3.58 GAA and an .881 save percentage. It certainly hasn't been all the netminder's fault, considering the Isles have failed to score a goal in three of those six defeats. Despite the slump, Sorokin will likely remain the preferred option in the crease ahead of Thursday's road game versus the Panthers.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Tough night in Detroit

    Sorokin stopped 18 of 23 shots in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Red Wings, with Detroit's final goal getting scored into an empty net.

    The first half of the game was actually scoreless, but the wheels fell off for the Islanders fairly quickly once Christian Fischer beat Sorokin on a breakaway just over 11 minutes into the second period. It's the 28-year-old Sorokin's fifth straight loss, a stretch in which he's stumbled to a 3.66 GAA and .878 save percentage, but the issue has been with New York's defense more than it's been with Sorokin's play. With the Isles sliding out of the playoff picture though, they need their No. 1 goalie to start stealing a win or two.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Facing Red Wings

    Sorokin will be between the visiting pipes in Detroit on Thursday, according to Andrew Gross of Newsday.

    Sorokin is also slated to start Sunday versus the Devils with Sergei Varlamov getting the crease versus Winnipeg on Saturday, according to coach Patrick Roy. Sorokin has lost four straight games after winning five in a row. He is 22-17-11 with a 3.03 GAA and a .908 save percentage. Sorokin is 1-0-1 versus the Red Wings this season, having given up seven goals on 65 shots in those contests.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Falls to Carolina

    Sorokin stopped 30 of 33 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Hurricanes. The fourth goal was an empty-netter.

    The Hurricanes scored three goals late in the first period on Sorokin, including one on the power play, and the Islanders could not overcome the deficit. It was the fourth loss in a row for Sorokin and the fifth straight loss for New York. If Sorokin's save percentage starts climbing and he can string together some wins, he could still be a valuable asset down the stretch. However, there is some risk involved in starting him right now, so consider your goalie options and matchups carefully.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Gets nod Tuesday

    Sorokin will start Tuesday at home against Carolina, per Stefen Rosner of NHL.com.

    Sorokin lost his third straight game Sunday, allowing five goals on 31 shots in a 5-2 loss to the Rangers. The 28-year-old has registered a .908 save percentage and a 22-16-11 record. He will have a tough test against Carolina -- the Hurricanes are 20-11-2 on the road this year and are averaging 3.38 goals which is tied for seventh in the league.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Loses third straight

    Sorokin made 26 saves on 31 shots in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Rangers.

    The 28-year-old stopped all 12 shots he faced in the first period as the Islanders grabbed a 1-0 lead, but Sorokin's bubble burst 27 seconds into the second on a Mika Zibanejad one-timer, and the Rangers never looked back. Sorokin has lost three straight starts, but Sunday's outing was his first since Feb. 20 in which he's allowed more than three goals. Over that nine-start stretch, he's posted a 2.57 GAA and .903 save percentage.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Rattled by Sabres

    Sorokin stopped 33 of 36 shots in Thursday's 4-0 loss to Buffalo, with the Sabres' final goal coming into an empty net.

    The game looked like it might become a goaltending duel between Sorokin and Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen after a scoreless first period, but the Sabres broke through with a power-play tally early in the second frame and never looked back. Sorokin has lost two straight starts on the heels of a five-start win streak, but he hasn't allowed more than three goals in any of his last eight outings, posting a .913 save percentage over that stretch.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Slated starter for Thursday

    Sorokin is expected to start on the road against Buffalo on Thursday, per Andrew Gross of Newsday.

    Sorokin has a 22-14-11 record, 2.99 GAA and .910 save percentage in 47 appearances in 2023-24. He's allowed two or fewer goals in each of his last four outings while winning three of those games. The Sabres rank 21st offensively with 2.94 goals per contest, so at a glance, they should be a somewhat favorable matchup for the hot goaltender. However, some caution might be warranted after Buffalo earned a 7-3 victory over Detroit on Tuesday.
