Islanders Vs. Lightning Final Score: Steven Stamkos Pushes Tampa Bay Past New York

Just like many others throughout the season, the Islanders had no answer for Lightning center Steven Stamkos on Saturday night, as his two goals led the way in a 4-3 Tampa Bay win.

The Islanders started Al Montoya between the pipes, and a Matt Moulson goal just 43 seconds into the third period had them on top 3-2 and in the lead for the first time on the evening.

But Tom Pyatt and Tim Wallace each slammed home a goal roughly three minutes apart to give Tampa Bay the 4-3 lead and ultimately the win.

Moulson's goal was his 33rd on the season, while both Frans Nielsen and Kyle Okposo also added tallies for New York.

The loss keeps the Isles at 71 points, tied with Montreal for last in the Eastern Conference. They'll skate again on Sunday afternoon when they travel to Florida to take on the Panthers.
