The Skinny - Game 18
Isles 7, Rangers 5
Anthony Beauvillier scored three goals in the first 25:13 for his first career hat trick and later added an assist for his first career 4-point game as the Isles rallied from an early 2-0 deficit for a 7-5 victory over the Rangers before a crowd of 13,472 at Barclays Center.
Valtteri Filppula added three assists, including his 300th career helper, as the Isles extended their winning streak over the Rangers to a franchise-record eight games; the Isles have also opened the Metro Division schedule with seven straight wins - it's the first time the Isles have ever opened a season with seven straight wins in their own division.
Cal Clutterbuck's empty-netter cemented matters; it was the first time the Isles had scored seven goals against the Rangers since October 31, 1987 (8-2 win).
