Anthony Beauvillier scored the game-winner, but Jaroslav Halak was the story in the Islanders 2-1 win over the New York Rangers in Bridgeport. 

Halak stopped 34-of-35 shots in the win, playing his first full game of the preseason. It was his first win of the exhibition schedule and helped the Islanders improve to 3-0-2 in preseason play. 

"Jaro was great," Head Coach Doug Weight said. "He made the big saves, but you don't just look at the score, but his body language, energetic, athletic, aggressive. He was good."

Mayfield Cuts His Flow For Charity

Islanders defenseman donates his hair to Wigs 4 Kids

by Rachel Schwartz Schwartzee524 / New York Islanders

Scott Mayfield had the best hair on the team. 

It was long, blonde and in a helmetless era, it would have flown in the wind as he skated down the ice and made for a magnificent hockey card. Even in a helmet, it looked pretty good.

Mayfield got some good years out of his long hair, but decided that it was time for someone else to enjoy it. On Thursday he got it cut and is donating it to Wigs 4 Kids, an organization that creates wigs and offers support to kids who have lost their hair due to cancer and other ailments. Learn more about Wigs4Kids.

Tavares A Presence At Islanders Camp

Tavares setting the pace for the Islanders at Training Camp

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

There was a notable absence at last year's New York Islanders Training Camp. 

While John Tavares went out to win the 2016 World Cup of Hockey with Team Canada, the captain's stall at Northwell Health Ice Center sat vacant for the first two weeks of camp. It's not that the Islanders didn't work without their best player, it's just that something was missing. Doug Weight summed it up best: a presence.
