ISLANDERS 4, PHILADELPHIA 2
Two power play goals help lead to Isles victory

Official Scoresheet | Official Super Stats

By Jason Lockhart

The Islanders (22-21-4) scored a pair of power play goals, including one while skating 5-on-3, and defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 4-2 at the Wachovia Center Thursday night.

Mike Sillinger tallied a goal and an assist, while Miroslav Satan added two assists to contribute to the Islanders' victory in their last game before the All-Star break. Rick DiPietro turned aside 29 shots for his 19th win of the season.

Radek Martinek made a key pinch in the offensive zone, so Satan could grab a loose puck. Satan floated the puck towards the net, which Randy Robitaille grabbed and put past former teammate Antero Niittymaki, 8:16 into the first period.

DiPietro had to be sharp from the start. Sami Kapanen found himself alone in front with the puck with 5:26 left in the first period, but DiPietro used his goalie stick to poke the puck away and save a goal.

At 3:08 of the second period, Flyers defenseman Randy Jones blasted home a perfectly placed slap shot from the left faceoff dot to even the score at one.

The Islanders regained the lead on the power play when Sean Hill's shot pinballed off Sillinger, then Jason Blake and into the net. Blake's team-leading 24th goal was scored with 7:02 left in the second period.

Simon Gagne countered with his own power play goal, 1:21 later with a sharp-angle one-timer.

The Islanders scored their second power play goal of the game to take a 3-2 lead. Satan's one-timer from Alexei Yashin was put home by Sillinger off the rebound. Sillinger's 15th goal was scored 3:27 into the third period while on a two-man advantage.

Andy Hilbert scored off the rush to make it 4-2 just 1:18 after Sillinger's goal. Chris Campoli slipped a pass to Hilbert after receiving the puck from Trent Hunter. Hilbert corralled the puck before lifting it over the fallen Niittymaki.
