The Skinny: Isles 3, Ottawa 2 (shootout - evening game)

The Isles completed a sweep of the day-night doubleheader with a come-from-behind 3-2 win over Ottawa in St. John's Newfoundland.

Cal Clutterbuck's 5th round shootout goal proved to be the decisive tally, making a winner of Kevin Poulin (in relief of Jaroslav Halak).

Newly-acquired Mikhail Grabovski had a goal and an assist for the Isles.  Josh Bailey scored the tying goal late in the second period and also scored in the 4th round of the shootout.

Here's the box from STATS:
