New York Islanders win a rare road game in Columbus

Columbus, Ohio– The New York Islanders inability to win road games is the real reason they’re in 11th place in the Eastern Conference. New York earned only its second road victory since January 18 with a  4-3 come-from-behind win over the Columbus Blue Jackets in overtime. During that span, the Islanders are 2-10-1 on the road during that span.

The Islanders struck twice in a 62-second span early in the first period to take  the lead, 2-0.

But Columbus started to come back. R.J. Umberger scored in the second period off a deflected 50-foot shot.

The Blue Jackets trailed 2-1 heading into the third period, but Rick Nash and Grant Clitstone scored goals :45 seconds apart early in the period to put Columbus in front.

Nash put a giveaway by Mark Streit 33 seconds into the net off a pass from Kristian Huselius for his 31st goal. Clitstone followed with a wrist shot from the left circle for his first NHL goal.

Kyle Okposo, Sean Bergenheim and Jon Sim scored in regulation for the Islanders.

Josh Bailey Islanders (NYI)

Josh Bailey scored 2:58 into overtime to give New York their first win at Nationwide Arena in their sixth try. The Columbus, Ohio arena was the only NHL venue in which the Islanders had never won.

On the game-winning goal, Columbus defenseman Mike Commodore got caught pinching deep in the New York zone. The Islanders Mark Streit moved rapidly out of the zone and slid the puck into the slot for John Tavares, who dumped it off to Bailey. The speedy center snapped a low shot past Mathieu Garon from inside the left circle and that was the game.

GAME NOTES
* Columbus is 7-1-4 all-time against the New York Islanders, including 5-0-2 at Nationwide Arena.

* John Tavares tied the Islanders club record for points in a game with a five-point game on Tuesday March 23, 2010 against the Vancouver Canucks. Tavares joins Dave Hutson, Mike Bossy, Pat Lafontaine, Mikko Makela and Bryan Trottier as the only other rookies to have recorded five-point games. Hudson’s five-point night ironically came against the Canucks on March 3, 1973.  Bryan Trottier had two five-point games as a rookie.  Tavares’ five-point night is the most by any rookie this season in a sigle game.

* Islanders first year center, John Tavares is ranked second in the NHL in rookie scoring.  Tavares has 21 goals and 23 assists for 44 points in 74 games.  He is tied with Colorado Avalanche forward, Matt Duchene for the league lead in power-play tallies with 10.  Taveras leads all rookies in power-play scoring with 21 points coming on the man-advantage.
