Islanders Vs. Jets Final Score: New York Wins 3-2 After Shootout

The New York Islanders visited the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night. The Islanders squad was attempting to win their second straight game and take five out of their last seven road games. The two teams proved to be evenly matched through regulation and overtime play, but New York was finally able to win the game 3-2 by taking the shootout.

The Islanders opened the scoring in the first period when P.A. Parenteau scored his fifth goal of the year on a snap shot with assists by Matt Moulson and John Tavares. Winnipeg answered back with two minutes left in the period on a goal by Nik Antropov.

In the second period, the Islanders again struck first, with Michael Grabner's tip-in. It was Grabner's 10th goal of the year. Travis Hamonic and Andrew MacDonald were credited with assists on the goal. Winnipeg would tie it once again, 2-2, on Andrew Ladd's 11th goal of the season.

The score would stand at 2-2 through the third period and the overtime period before going to a shootout. Blake Wheeler was up first for the Jets and missed, after which Parenteau made his shot. Kyle Wellwood came up empty on his attempt for the Jets. Frans Nielson did the honors of making his goal to give the Islanders the win.
