After a tough 3-1 loss to Tampa, the New York Islanders needed to bounce back in the worst way. Isles fans weren't too confident when they saw Kieffer Bellows as a healthy scratch but oddly enough the offense came out flying to start this game.
3:30 into the period Anthony Beauvillier was set up on a beauty tic tac toe goal on a feed from Brock Nelson and Josh Bailey. It was exactly the kind of start that the Islanders needed. They weren't done.
That same line set up another nice goal from Anthony Beauvillier at the 6:16 mark giving the Islanders a 2-0 lead.
