John Tavares and the Islanders defeated the Carolina Hurricanes in the shootout 4-3. Tavares finished the game with three points and had a hand in all three-regulation goals for the Islanders. Frans Nielsen and PA Parenteau lifted the Islanders to victory with each player scoring in the shootout.
The Islander started the game on a high note, scoring the games opening goal nearly four minutes into the game. Matt Martin coaxed Bryan Allan of the Hurricanes into taking a holding penalty and Matt Moulson scored on the power play off a pass from John Tavares behind the net. The Hurricanes would respond with a goal of their own 31 seconds later. Anthony Stewart scored off a face-off win in the Islanders zone.

Ever heard of Charlie Moore?
Did you know he had his own T.V show, Charlie Moore: No Offense?
Did you know that Jack Capuano fishes?
If you answered no to all three questions then you’re not alone. But they are all true statements. Charlie Moore is well known in the fishing world and indeed has his own T.V show on NBC Sports Network (formerly Versus). And Jack Capuano is indeed...
I see you guys got a little carried away while my back was turned, so rather than continuing the morning post, let's start fresh.
Matt Moulson started the scoring early, but the game was tied it up 31 seconds later. Still, nice moves by JT and Frans.
So, as you can see, Dylan Reese has been called up on emergency service which should make a few Isles fans very happy. ...
