The Islanders mount a late rally, but fall to the Devils in Newark.

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

The New York Islanders attempted a late rally on Saturday night, but couldn't complete the comeback, falling 3-2 to the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center. 

Down 3-0 in the third period, Andrew Ladd and Anthony Beauvillier scored a pair of goals inside the final 11:02 to give the Islanders a chance, but to no avail. Nick Leddy came agonizingly close to tying it up, putting an open look off the post with 1:27 to play.

"Sometimes it's just a little puck luck here and there," Calvin de Haan said. "It's a strange game, things don't always go your way no matter how well you play."

Unsung Islanders Play Key Role in Win over Rangers

Stephen Gionta, Nikolay Kulemin and Scott Mayfield contribute in 4-2 win

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Thursday's Islanders-Rangers tilt was a blue-collar game and it was the Islanders' unsung, blue-collar players that played a key role in the 4-2 win.

Stephen Gionta's forecheck, Nikolay Kulemin's penalty killing and Scott Mayfield's simple steady play were all key contributions - along with a driven performance from John Tavares. 

"Those guys are playing their roles fantastically," Anders Lee said. "Those guys sacrifice their bodies in penalty kills and are playing a role that's a little unsung. You always love seeing those guys contribute on the board, it's huge that they did tonight, that's why we won."

Game 56
Isles 4, Rangers 2

Andrew Ladd recorded his third two-goal game of the season and Nikolay Kulemin scored the eventual winning goal while shorthanded early in the third period as the Islanders snapped the Rangers' 6-game win streak and defeated the Blue Shirts 4-2 before a sellout crowd of 15,795 at Barclays Center. The Isles improve to 8-0-2 in their last 10 games in Brooklyn; it's the first time that the Isles have had a single-season point streak of at least 10 games at home since 1990, and matches their longest home point streak in the Post-Cup era.
 
Nick Holden and Jimmy Vesey scored for the Rangers; the latter goal upheld after the first challenge by Doug Weight behind the Isles bench. Anders Lee scored his 22nd goal for the Isles; all but one of his goals have come since November 23rd.

The Islanders fall to 9-3-2 under Interim Coach Doug Weight and climb back within one point of the idle Maple Leafs for the 2nd wild card spot. Each team has 26 games to play.

Ladd, Tavares power Isles past Rangers, 4-2

Andrew Ladd scored twice and John Tavares tallied two assists to propel the Islanders to a 4-2 win against the Rangers in Brooklyn

  • 04:22 •

The importance of the Islanders 4-2 win over the New York Rangers on Thursday meant more than bragging rights from Manhattan to Montauk. 

The Islanders needed the pair of points to keep pace in a tightening Eastern Conference Wild Card and couldn't afford to lose two straight games in regulation. The importance was not lost on Isles, who followed John Tavares' blue-collar effort and outworked the Rangers, finishing the night one point out of the final playoff spot.
