Islanders beat Panthers in shootout on Mathew Barzal’s goal

SUNRISE, Fla. — The second period on Monday night saw veteran goalie Roberto Luongo helped off the ice, Cal Clutterbuck bear-hugged by John Tavares to keep from storming the ice and four goals that pushed the Islanders to a lead.

The Islanders let that edge slip, went to a shootout and grabbed the extra point on Mathew Barzal’s lone shootout goal in a 5-4 win over the Panthers. Barzal had two great, self-created chances in overtime that were turned aside and Jaroslav Halak finished with 39 saves, plus a stop on Jonathan Huberdeau to end the shootout.

After surrendering six goals in Friday’s home loss to the Senators, giving up another four was not in the plan.
