It was a memorable night for Tim Wallace and David Ullstrom as they both contributed in the Islanders 5-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Wallace was credited with his first point as an Islander and Ullstrom scored his first career NHL goal at the 3:39 mark of the third period.

The Islanders came into the game without Jay Pandolfo and Michael Grabner, who are both sidelined with respective injuries. The injuries did not prevent them from rolling over the Lightning in a game that saw five different Islander players score.

It was the Lightning who opened up the scoring with a goal from Martin St Louis at the 6:55 mark of the first period. It would take the Islanders seven minutes after the Tampa goal to answer back. John Tavares scored from in front of the net to tie the game at one. Four minutes later, Matt martin made it a 2-1 lead scoring on a feed from Tim Wallace behind the net. The point would be Wallace’s first since January 1, 2009 and his first as a New York Islander.

The Isles added one more goal on the power play in the waning seconds of the period. Milan Jurcina finished an impressive tic-tac-toe play to score his first goal of the season and make it a 3-1 lead. Josh Bailey and Steve Staios were credited for the assists on the play.

The second period was a strong period for the Islanders, but they did not score during the period. The Isles and Lightning tied in shots (11) and had three power play opportunities during the period.

The third period saw the Islanders add two more goals to increase their lead. Ullstrom scored early in the third period off a drop pass from Josh Bailey. Matt Moulson scored his team leading 14th goal of the season on the power play to make it a 5-1 lead.

Al Montoya put on another solid performance stopping 23 of the 24 shots he faced for a .958 save percentage.

The Islanders went three for three on the penalty kill against the Lightning and went two for five on the power play.
