Islanders Vs. Lightning: Steven Stamkos Pots Another, But Islanders Rally To Tie Game, 2-2

Steven Stamkos has scored his 52nd goal of the year, but the New York Islanders have tallied two goals of their own, with the result being a 2-2 game after 40 minutes at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

The same combination that put the Lightning up 1-0 doubled their advantage just 1:46 into the second period, as Stamkos tallied his second goal of the night from assists by Martin St. Louis and Teddy Purcell. But the Islanders responded while Brandon Segal was serving a tripping penalty, as Frans Nielsen scored his 15th goal of the season off assists from Matt Moulson and John Tavares to make the score 2-1 to Tampa Bay at the 8:15 mark.

The Islanders tied the score with less than a minute to play, as Kyle Okposo scored his 16th of the season to make the score 2-2, with Josh Bailey and Nielsen providing the assists.

Through two periods, the Islanders are outshooting the Lightning 29-15.
