        Jaroslav Halak strong in goal for Islanders in win over Ottawa

        Halak denied Derick Brassard in the final minute to preserve the Isles’ third straight win and sixth in their last seven.

        KANATA, Ontario — Jaro slav Halak hadn’t been getting the “run support,” as Doug Weight put it before Saturday’s game. Halak was making his third start in the last 10 games, as he’d fallen below Thomas Greiss on Weight’s goaltender preference list, and hadn’t won since Oct. 30.

        Halak needed a game like Saturday. He turned aside 31 Senators shots and carried the night in a 2-1 Islanders win, their third straight victory and sixth in the last seven.

        He permitted precious few second chances and battled for space and sight lines all night, the hallmarks of what Weight has grown to know as a strong Halak performance.

        “You can tell when he’s on,” Weight said. “Our goalies have maybe been victim of some numbers they don’t deserve — Jaro hasn’t had much luck and Greisser has just been battling for wins. It was a big game for Jaro and he was the best player out there.”

        With six Senators power plays and 11 total for both teams on the second night of a back-to-back set for both clubs, the goaltenders had to set the tone.

        Craig Anderson did so for the Senators, denying John Tavares and Josh Bailey early in the first during a particularly forceful shift in the offensive zone for the Islanders’ top line.

        Halak answered later in the first, getting a shoulder on Derick Brassard’s wrister off a three-on-two rush. Halak denied Brassard again in the final minute of the third, flashing his right pad to keep it a one-goal game.

        “Lately we’ve been getting down early, 1-0, 2-0,” Halak said. “I just wanted to get through the first and build off it. We didn’t give them much in the first.”

          The Skinny: Isles 2, Ottawa 1

          "The Skinny"

          By Eric Hornick

          Game 23
          Isles 2, Ottawa 1
          Jordan Eberle scored what proved to be the game-winning goal with 5:50 to play and Jaroslav Halak made 31 saves as he came within 4:21 of a shutout as the Islanders made this a Thanksgiving weekend to remember with their third straight victory as they defeated the Ottawa Senators 2-1 before a crowd of 17,276 at Canadian Tire Center.

          It was the second goal in as many games for Eberle, whose nine goals have all come in the last 13 games.

          Matt Duchene scored his first goal as a Senator but the Sens still suffered their sixth straight loss (0-5-1, including four straight regulation defeats).
          The Skinny:
          The Isles scored the first goal for the 9th time in 23 games (9-0-0) … The Isles scored a power play goal for the sixth straight game for the first time since February 2016 (6 games) …Josh Bailey leads the team in assists and points (5-23-28) while John Tavares continues to lead in goals and is two points behind Bailey (15-11-26) … Mathew Barzal's assist extended his point streak to six games; he now has 23 points, which leads all NHL rookies (Vancouver's Brock Boeser point has 22) …An Islander defenseman has earned a point on 11 of the team's last 12 goals.… The Isles improved to 4-3-2 in one-goal games with their first regulation win by a single goal this season; they are 10-4 in games decided by 2+ goals…Nick Leddy recorded his 8th multi-point game of the season; he leads all NHL defenseman in that category…Barzal's 17 assists are already the most by an Islander rookie since 2010-11 (Travis Hamonic 21, Michael Grabner 18)…The Isles are 10-0-0 when leading after two periods…Mike Hoffman recorded his 100th career assist on the Sens' only goal.

            If that's the prize, I need to get in on that.


            • Dr. Doom: Won a 2-1 game. Have to win games like this to make play-offs and get GAA down. If the Isles play .500 the rst of the way they will wind up with 86pts. Doesn't seem this team will not play above .500 the rest of the way. Even Dr. Doom almost ready to post positive things....almost.
