Earlier today, the Islanders opened their pre season with split squad games against the Senators. Our Islanders came out victorious in both games each by a score of 3-2.
Brock Nelson was one of the Islanders top scorers in game one registering a goal and an assist. Newcomer Jack Skille made his present felt scoring the game winning goal with around 90 seconds left in regulation. Sebastian Collberg also got on the board with a goal in the second period. In case you forgot, Collberg is the prospect the Islanders got back from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for Thomas Vanek at the trade deadline last season.
Meanwhile, in the second game Mikhail Grabovski was one of the Islanders top scorers like Nelson in the first game registering a goal and an assist. Josh Bailey also managed to put up a goal for the Islanders both in regulation then in the shootout. Cal Clutterbuck won it for the Islanders in the shootout. Also, in the shootout, Kevin Poulin stopped 4 of 5 Senator shots.
