Late note on PA's Late Goal
LATE TIEBREAKING GOAL BY P.A. PARENTEAU
From Elias: The Islanders, who had scored only two goals in their previous three home games, overcame a 2-0 deficit at the end of the first period to beat the Capitals, 5-3, at Nassau Coliseum. P.A. Parenteau scored the game-winner for the Islanders when he broke a 3-3 tie with 1:46 left in the third period. It was the first time that an Islanders player scored a tiebreaking goal in the final two minutes of the third period since Feb. 19, 2007, when Mike Sillinger did so at the 19:33 mark against Pittsburgh in Uniondale.>>
