Plekanec, Pouliot lift Canadiens past Islanders @NHLdotcom

QUEBEC (AP) - Tomas Plekanec and Benoit Pouliot each scored two goals as the Montreal Canadiens beat a split-squad of New York Islanders 7-2 on Saturday night.

Michael Cammalleri, P.K. Subban and Lars Eller also scored for Montreal (4-3-0) in the final preseason game for both teams.

Cammalleri, who also had an assist, was ejected at 16:52 of the second period for a hard slash to the anklke of Islanders prospect Nino Niederreiter. The 18-year-old Swiss forward limped off the ice and did not return.

Jon Sim and Jesse Joensuu scored for New York (0-4), which sent its 'B' team here without top players like John Tavares, Matt Moulson and Josh Bailey. They played in the club's other game, a 2-1 win at home against New Jersey.
