Live Updates - Islanders at Jets
3:00 p.m. - MTS Centre - Winnipeg, MBNote: Page will automatically refresh every 60 seconds.
Brian Strait is back in the lineup today after missing 29 games.
4:21: Frans Nielsen gets us started with a goal on a rush. He goes five-hole from the left wing following a feed from Kyle Okposo. 1-0 Islanders.
10:42: Zach Bogosian with a one-time drive from the top of the right circle in transition. His fifth of the season. He was trailing Andrew Ladd and Blake Wheeler into the zone, and Wheeler dropped the puck behind for the d-man, tying the game at 1-1.
11:33: No idea how Evgeni Nabokov kept that puck out. Evander Kane, Chris Thorburn and Mike Santorelli were hacking away at the puck but Nabokov spread out and finally covered it up.
12:14: Josh Bailey re-establishes the Islanders lead with his 10th of the season. 2-1 Isles. Good cycling with Bailey and Kyle Okposo. Bailey stepped into one from the right circle and beat Ondrej Pavelec five-hole.
15:19: Islanders put some pressure on, and it results in a delay of game (puck over the glass) on Kane. New York is 0-for-1 so far on the man advantage.
17:33: Stoppage of play after Kane flies back on the ice. Islanders are 0-for-2 on the job today. One shot on goal during that advantage.
End 1st: NYI 2 WPG 1. Shots: NYI 11 WPG 4.
9:08: Brad Boyes all alone on a breakaway, but he rings it off the right post.
9:47: Matt Martin gets a good look, and it's 3-1 Isles. Jesse Joensuu threw it from the corner back to Martin in the left circle, and he one-timed it under Pavelec for his fourth tally of the season. Lubomir Visnovsky with the second assist.
10:27: The two-goal lead was short-lived. Kyle Wellwood cuts it to 3-2. A shot from Kane along the left wing boards is stopped, but the rebound bounces out to Wellwood on the right wing. Nabokov lunges out but Wellwood's shot finds the back of the net.
13:24: Wellwood evens it up at 3-3. He broke in behind the D on a flip pass by Grant Clitsome. Wellwood deked backhand-forehand before going bar-down on Nabokov.
15:40: Dustin Byfuglien penalized for slashing. Islanders are 0-for-3 on the power play.
17:40: Byfuglien gets back to the ice. I would say both teams had two very big chances during that PP, including a breakaway from Alex Burmistrov.
18:04: Okposo and Zach Bogosian chirping at each other from the penalty boxes right now. Okposo took offense to Bogosian's hit on Nielsen moments before. Bailey is going off for hooking, while Bogosian and Okposo get matching minors for roughing. First PP of the day for the Jets.
18:33: Nabokov doing his part to keep this game tied. Big save on a Byfuglien slapper from the point. He didn't catch it clean, coming off a deflection but fell and smothered it.
19:12: Blake Wheeler goes off for a slash, and Matt Martin's retalliatory actions result in a roughing penalty
19:45: Michael Grabner gets penalized for concealing the puck along the boards after losing his stick. He have 5-on-3 for 18 seconds, meaning if no one scores, we'll start the third for a couple of seconds with a two-man disadvantage.
End 2nd: NYI 3 WPG 3. Jets put one in the back of the net about a second after the horn. Shots: NYI 23 WPG 13.
6:23: TV timeout. Eric Tangradi with a series of blocked shots while the Islanders applied pressure. Still 3-3.
9:14: Grabner with a crazy goal. Colin McDonald was in the corner and just threw the puck in front. He got it to the crease where Grabner was camped, and he one-timed it in before Pavelec could get across. 4-3 Islanders.
17:52: Visnovsky takes a penalty for __, and a second later, Thomas Hickey receives a hit from behind with no penalty, Empty net at the other end.
17:59: Winnipeg ties it again on the 6-on-4. Jets won the faceoff, Nabokov made a save from the right side, and Ladd quickly dished across to Little, who played it off his skate and found the open net. 7th of the year, and it's on the PP.
End 3rd: NYI 4 WPG 4. Shots: NYI 29 WPG 25. Point guaranteed in the standings.
2:27: Clitsome just hit the post, and the puck laid in front for a minute before the Isles could clear. Still playing.
3:57: Wow. Great pad save by Pavelec on Nielsen from the slot.
4:38: Great chance by Tavares, but somehow that stayed out after the puck flipped up in the air.
4:59: Penalty coming up as Byfuglien crashes into Nabokov on a rush. Nabby appears to be ok. 1.7 remaining as faceoff comes back down to the WPG zone.
End OT: NYI 4 WPG 4. Shots: NYI 33 WPG 28.
