Bye Bye Bishop
Bishop's night. That's 4GA on 13 shots. Assists go to Kyle Okposo and Frans Nielson. A scary moment for the Islanders when Alex Killorn's dumped in puck hits head coach Jack Capuano in the nose. Former Stanley cup winner Doug Weight then took over as head coach. In the 3rd period, goals by Nikita Kucherov and Valtteri Filppula got the game to 4-3. Matthew Carle, Victor Hedman, Killorn and Jason Garrison all got assists. Luckily for the Islanders, Cal Clutterbuck's empty net goal made it 5-3. Casey Cizikas and Calvin de Haan got assists. More good news is that Capuano was on the bench to see the goal. Final Islanders 5, Lightning 3.
