Recap: Islanders Beat Blues 2-1 in OT

Valtteri Filppula scores OT winner, as Islanders sweep season series with St. Louis

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / NewYorkIslanders.com

Valtteri Filppula scored the overtime winner 1:37 into the extra frame, as the New York Islanders downed the St. Louis Blues 2-1 on Tuesday night at Barclays Center. 

Mathew Barzal set up the goal, luring Jaden Schwartz in close in the neutral zone before threading a cross-ice, blueline-to-blueline feed to Filppula, who ended the game with his 10th goal of the season. With the win, the Islanders sweep the season series with the Blues, pick up their second straight victory and improved to 8-2-0 in their last 10.

"I knew [Ryan] O'Reilly had been out there for a while since the start of OT, so I was going to see if they made a change, or see if we could catch them on a rush," Barzal said. "Fil stepped on in a great spot, he's a smart player obviously in the right spot and a great bury by him."

Isles use fast start to defeat Lightning, 5-1

Brock Nelson, Cal Clutterbuck, and Devon Toews each scored in the opening 4:43 of the game to help lead the Islanders to a 5-1 victory

  • 04:29 •

The New York Islanders felt they could hang with the NHL's top team and they proved it on Sunday night, beating the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-1 at Barclays Center. 

The Islanders used three quick strikes in the first period to build a 3-0 lead, while Thomas Greiss made 38 saves to protect it the rest of the way. The regulation loss was the Lightning's second in the last 21 games, so it was not overzealous to call Sunday a statement win by the Isles. 

"I think there's certain games, or certain times during the year where you get an opponent that makes you believe, or cements what you're trying to do as a team and it sort of galvanizes you," Head Coach Barry Trotz said. "Or it gives you a more solid foundation. I think we've had a couple of those."

Mats Zuccarello scored the winning goal with 5:05 to play as the Rangers earned a split of the home-and-home series with the Isles with a 2-1 victory at Barclays Center before a near-capacity crowd of 15,497. 

After combining for eight power play goals in the first three games of the season series, the teams combined to go 0-10 on the power play, with both teams failing on lengthy 5-on-3 attempts.

Robin Lehner allowed only two goals, but that was enough to cost him his career-best eight -game winning streak.

Recap: Islanders Win Streak Snapped Vs Hurricanes

Islanders six-game winning streak snapped in 4-3 loss vs Hurricanes

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / NewYorkIslanders.com

The New York Islanders winning streak was bound to come to an end eventually. 

The Isles six-game heater was snapped on Tuesday night, as a pair of late goals by the Carolina Hurricanes resulted in a 4-3 loss at NYCB Live. The loss was the Islanders first since Dec. 20 and first in four games against the Hurricanes this season. 

"It's tough, we were obviously on a roll. We wanted to come back at home and keep it going," said Brock Nelson, who had three points (2G, 1A) in the loss. "This was a good team who was playing well too and it was a big game in the standings and we weren't able to do enough good things."
