New York Islanders - Fifth Annual Lighthouse International Tournament
New York Islanders - A Finnish finish
The Lighthouse International Youth Hockey Tournament ended with some Finnish flare, as the Ilves Islanders I topped the Ilves Islanders II 5-4 in the final to capture the gold medal at Nassau Coliseum.

Valteri Koivonen of the senior Ilves (team I) scored the winner on a late breakaway in the third period. It was a thrilling conclusion to the all-Finland final that saw both teams trade leads.

Islanders General Manager Garth Snow attended the championship contest and presented the medals following the game. Both teams came together to skate a lap around the ice and wave the Finnish flag in front of their many family members and friends who flew across continents to watch them play this week.

The hot hands of the tournament struck again Saturday afternoon, although with less frequency than they had in the round robin. Marc Lahtinen and Taaui Palotic of the senior team each scored two goals and notched an assist. Lahtinen had nine goals and two assists in his last two games alone. Santeri Tahuanainen, Elias Nieminen and Jarkko Maki each had two points for the junior team and Jere Turunen also had a goal in the final game.
