McDonald helps Islanders past Flyers 4-3 in shootout

PHILADELPHIA - Colin McDonald scored two goals, Josh Bailey tallied the clinching score in the shootout and the New York Islanders won again on the road, coming up with a 4-3 shootout victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.

John Tavares also scored for New York, which won its fourth straight on the road while improving to 10-4-1 away from home this season to pull into a tie with the Rangers for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Scott Hartnell scored twice and Mike Knuble also tallied for the Flyers, who blew a two-goal lead while falling further out of the playoff picture. Philadelphia last missed the playoffs in 2007.

The Isles, who last made the playoffs in 2007, dominated the final two periods of regulation after falling behind 2-0 in the first period.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
