Islanders Vs. Oilers: New York Routs Edmonton, 4-1

The New York Islanders won their second consecutive game today as they defeated the Edmonton Oilers by a final score of 4-1. The win moves the Isles to 13-17-6 on the season, but they still have work to do if they have any shot of making the playoffs, as they trail the eight seed Toronto Maple Leafs by nine points.

Both the Oilers and Isles had 29 shots and 25 faceoffs won. The big difference in the game was the 16 penalty minutes by the Oilers and the 21 takeaways by the Isles. John Tavares, Matt Moulson, P.A. Parenteau and Matt Martin each scored a goal for the Islanders. Moulson also had two assists.

The Isles next game is on January 3 as they travel to face the Flames to begin a three game road trip.
