Moulson scores twice in Islanders' scrimmage

Michael Grabner scored in the seventh round of the shootout to lead the Blue Team to a 6-5 victory against the White Team in the New York Islanders' intrasquad scrimmage Wednesday night at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

Matt Moulson scored twice in regulation and once in the shootout for the Blue Team in the Islanders' lone tune-up before Saturday night's season opener against the New Jersey Devils.

The teams went into the shootout with the White Team leading 5-3. Frans Nielsen scored in the first round for the Blue Team and Moulson found the back of the net in the fifth round to knot the score 5-5 and send the breakaway competition into sudden death.

Grabner finished the contest in the seventh round with a forehand past White Team goaltender Evgeni Nabokov. Blue Team goaltender Rick DiPietro stood his ground through all seven rounds, not allowing a single shootout goal.
