Isles 3 - Tampa 2 OT Win
Check it out. Take a good look. Yes, that says the Islanders are in first place. After an impressive win in the St. Pete Times Forum, the first since 2008, the Islanders came away with two points and two injuries. Figures, doesn't it?
Andrew MacDonald left the game with a hand injury and Blake Comeau smacked his knee against Dan Ellis' net that caused him to go straight to the room.
But Matt Moulson gets credit for the goal that Ellis tried to sweep out of the air, but it had already crossed the goal line. Sneaky sneaky Dan. But the Toronto war room caught it.
Great win for the Islanders and their Dads who are on the annual Father's trip. Best of all for Rick DiPietro Sr. who has had to watch his son fight so hard to make his way back to the ice.
