It took seven games but the Islanders have finally won this season. Thanks to the quick hands of Jeff Tamballini, Frans Nielson and of course, JOHN TAVARES the Isles salveged another third period collapse and won in the shootout, along with a much improved Dwayne Roloson.
It would be the Islanders who would once again have all the advantages in the first, with several scoring chances and one that became the Islanders first goal. At 8:11 Andy Sutton fed Matt Moulson in front of the net to give the Islanders the 1-0 lead, along with giving Moulson his fifth goal of the season. Later in the first Bredon Witt and Scott Walker would drop the gloves in front of the Isles net. Witt would be pumbled by Walker before finally getting a few good jabs in, then getting wrestled down to the ice.no comments
