It was a homecoming for Islanders assistant coaches John Chabot and Gerard Gallant, who both grew up in the small community of Summerside, Prince Edward Island, but it was Mike Comrie who stole the show, scoring three goals for Team Blue in the Islanders' intra-squad scrimmage on Saturday afternoon. John Chabot's Team Blue ultimately won 5-4 with Bill Guerin getting the clincher in the shootout session.

The Islanders' had a hero's welcome upon arrival in Summerside. Garnering a police escort, the Islanders peered through the bus windows to witness cars honking and fans waving.

"A lot of guys come from small Canadian towns, so we appreciate playing in places like this," said Mike Comrie. "The people of Summerside were very welcoming, and we thank them for their hospitality."

Guerin had two assists in regulation and Rick DiPietro played one period of shutout hockey for Team White.

Just past the midway point of the first period, Team White struck first. Derek Damon drove by Jordan Hart and pushed the puck past Joey MacDonald with the assist going to Miroslav Satan.

With 7:18 left in the first period, White scored again. Mike Sillinger found Trent Hunter at the side of the net for an easy re-direct.

Blue cut the lead to 2-1 when Guerin and Comrie teamed up. Guerin fed Comrie for a semi-breakaway. Comrie slid the puck under Maxime Ouellet at 4:24 of the second period.

It was all tied up at two when Guerin danced through the defense and found Comrie, who rifled home a slapshot at 9:56 of the second period.

White re-gained the lead when Jeremy Colliton found the back of the net 3:09 into the third period.

Aaron Johnson found Comrie for his second breakaway of the game and third goal of the contest, late in the third period.

In the shootout, Team Blue picked up goals from Gordie Dwyer and Guerin. Miroslav Satan scored the lone Team White shootout goal.

Today marked the end of Training Camp in Canada with the Islanders returning to Long Island.
