Rangers' Streak Is Snapped


Gross, Andrew, The Record (Bergen County, NJ)


NEW YORK - A promising start turned into a brutally disappointing loss for the Rangers.

The Islanders fell behind by two goals in the first period, but rallied with three second-period goals and snapped the Rangers' three-game winning streak with a 4-3 shootout win Thursday night at Madison Square Garden.

Frans Nielsen and John Tavares beat Martin Biron, making his second start for the Rangers (7-5-1), in the shootout while Evgeni Nabokov (36 saves) turned aside Marian Gaborik and Rick Nash for the Islanders (5-7-1), who snapped a five-game losing streak as well as an eight-game losing streak at Madison Square Garden.

Biron made 28 saves.

The Islanders took a 3-2 lead with three goals in the first 7:25 of the second period, starting with Colin McDonald beating Richards across the crease following a Marc Staal turnover and converting Casey Cizikas' pass from behind the net just 29 seconds into the period.

Tavares extended his goal streak to four games at 6:45 on a shot from the left faceoff circle which Biron could not handle with his glove. Brad Boyes gave the Islanders the lead just 40 seconds later from the right faceoff circle.

Those back-to-back goals came after the Rangers failed to get shot on net - two were blocked - on a 5-on-3 power play that lasted 33 seconds after Eric Boulton tripped Matt Gilroy at 3:06 and Nielsen was called for a faceoff violation at 4:33 after swiping the puck with his glove.

But Carl Hagelin, following a length video review, tied the game on the power play at 11:14 after defenseman Brian Strait interfered with Gaborik in the neutral zone. …
