Minor error in last night's Skinny.  The Tavares paragraph should read as follows:

Tavares Extends Point Streak to 5 – Matches Career High

Just 13 seconds into the 3rd period, John Tavares deflected a Wisniewksi shot to cut the Montreal advantage to 3-2.  It was the Isles' second power play goal of the evening and gives Tavares a five-game point scoring streak for the second time in his NHL career.  Tavares leads the Islanders in goals with six.  Four of his 6 goals have come on the power play, tying Ottawa's Daniel Alfredsson for the NHL lead.

Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: forever1940.blogspot.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
