Islanders Vs. Maple Leafs Score: New York Allows Just 14 Shots On Net In 5-2 Win

The New York Islanders came away with a 5-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday night, allowing just 14 total shots on net for the game. The Leafs held the lead twice, going up 1-0 and 2-1 on goals by Phil Kessel and Matthew Lombardi, respectively. The Isles scored three times in a span of 4:30 during the third period to seal the victory.

Toronto goaltender James Reimer faced 33 shots on the night, 14 of which came in the third period. Matt Moulson scored his 31st and 32nd goals of the season, the first coming on a power play 14 minutes into the final period and the second coming on an empty net with time winding down. David Ullstrom scored just his third goal of the season on a tip-in to tie the game 2-2 midway through the second.

The Isles improved to 30-32-11 with the win, though they are still nine points out of eighth place in the Eastern Conference and one point behind the Maple Leafs. The win was New York's second in a row after losing five straight. New York has three games left on its current road stand and will visit the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday and the Florida Panthers on Sunday before visiting the Pittsburgh Penguins next Tuesday.
