The Skinny: Isles 3, Ottawa 2 (afternoon game)

Okay, you'll have to wait about 2 1/2 weeks for the real thing, but the Isles did win the matinee with the Sens 3-2.  Game 2 at 6pm ET.  Ottawa radio is carrying both games with Dean Brown called pbp.  Pre-game show for game 2 essentially began when game 1 ended (I'm not kidding).

Listen here: TSN 1200

Here's the scoring on the matinee from STATS, Inc.

1st Period
Brock Nelson (Power Play)
Assists: Anders Lee, Ryan Strome
Islanders 1-0
Alex Chiasson
Assists: Mika Zibanejad, Milan Michalek
Tied 1-1
2nd Period
Sebastian Collberg
Assists: Brock Nelson, Kevin Czuczman
Islanders 2-1
Cole Schneider
Assists: Jean-Gabriel Pageau, Shane Prince
Tied 2-2
3rd Period
Jack Skille
Assists: Casey Cizikas, Harry Zolnierczyk
Islanders 3-2

Wouldn't give much credence to anything else that appears in the Stats boxscore (It has all of the Islander shots taken by Brock Nelson and all of Ottawa's by Alex Chiasson).  Chad Johnson and David Leggio split the game for the Isles.  I believe Leggio gave up the tying goal in the 2nd period but made a couple of big saves late.

The game-winning goal scorer, Jack Skille, was the 7th overall pick in 2005.  Sidney Crosby, Bobby Ryan, Jack Johnson, Benoit Pouliot and Carey Price were the top 5, but he was picked ahead of guys such as Anze Kopitar, Marc Staal and Devon Setoguchi.  He was also picked ahead of Ryan O'Marra (15th by the Isles).
