New, 1 comment

Uniondale, NY (Sports Network) – Martin St. Louis had a goal and two assists to lead Tampa Bay to a 4-2 win over the New York Islanders.

St. Louis’ goal came with 89 seconds left in the game but was followed just 21 ticks later by an Islanders goal from John Tavares, which made it 3-2.

The Lightning got an empty-netter from Nate Thompson with 16 seconds remaining to seal the win, just their second victory in eight November tilts.

The Islanders couldn’t muster a win in Jack Capuano’s NHL debut as head coach, dropping their 11th consecutive game. Capuano was handed the reins on an interim basis when Scott Gordon was fired Monday.
