The Islanders stormed back from an early 2-0 deficit, scoring four-second period goals en route to their largest offensive output this season. Ryan Strome scored his first career NHL goal, while Calvin de Haan picked up his first two NHL points. Peter Regin, Brock Nelson and Brian Strait rounded out the scoring for the Islanders.

Stars player to watch
Jamie Benn - Forward

Stars captain Jamie Benn is having a fantastic year playing alongside Tyler Seguin. Benn has 15 goals, 22 assists and 37 points in 44 games this season and is in the top-30 of league scoring. Benn’s strong play over the past three seasons earned him a spot on the Canadian Olympic men’s hockey roster, one of the hardest teams in hockey to make. Benn had a six-point night (1g/5a) in November and scored one goal against the Islanders in their last meeting.

Quote of the Day:
Thomas Hickey on Friday's win:
This was healthy for us to win one, when we don’t score five goals.  We had to use the extra time, but we got it done.
