New York Islanders - Fifth Annual Lighthouse International Tournament
New York Islanders - Lighthouse Tournament, Day 3
Another day on the Coliseum ice saw both Finland teams take commanding wins over two local teams. The Nassau Islanders eeked out a win in the final seconds of their game against Japan. 

Read on for complete game recaps.

Game 1: Finland I: 9 – Nassau Islanders: 1
With a shot to go to the championship game on the line, Finland’s Marc Lahtinen did all he could to get his team to the big game. Lahtinen resembled the Finnish Flash, scoring his teams first seven goals and assisting on the eighth. Justus Kunnusmaki scored Finland’s final two goals and added two assists. Harry Nicolas of Westbury tallied the Islanders lone goal.

Game 2: Westchester: 4 – Suffolk: 0
Goalie Mike Schur recorded a shutout for Westchester, the second goose egg of the tournament. Carmine Christiano carried the offense for Westchester, scoring two goals on Friday afternoon. Peter Orlowski and Nick Barbero rounded out the offense for the Mariners. Westchester improves to 1-2-0 while Suffolk drop to 0-3-0.

Game 3: Nassau Islanders: 5 – Japan: 4
Defenseman Max Evans broke a deadlock with 48.5 seconds remaining in the third period, as the Islanders beat Japan 5-4. Nassau battled back from a 3-1 deficit, winning in dramatic fashion. Hunter Rossi, Teddy Ingrassia and Evans scored three second period goals to spark the comeback, taking a 4-3 lead at the end of the middle frame. Nakamichi, Kobayashi, Yasuno and Ikeda scored for Japan, who fell to 1-1-1 and just shy of the championship game. Nassau finished the tournament 2-1-0.

Game 4: Finland II: 10 – Rinx: 1
Finland punched their ticket to the championship game, defeating the Rinx 10-1, going undefeated in round-robin play. Jere Turunen scored a hat trick including the breathtaking game-winner. Turunen balanced the puck on his blade behind the net and wrapped it around to the top corner, much like a lacrosse goal. Santeri Tahuanainen finished the game with four goals and three assists, giving him 17 points (8g/9a) in three games. John Forlenza scored the Rinx only goal, giving the Lake Grove native a hand in his teams last five goals.
