Islanders Vs. Avalanche Score: Paul Stastny Puts Colorado On Board, But Losing To New York, 3-1

The Colorado Avalanche find themselves down. 3-1, after two periods of play against the New York Islanders. Paul Stastny put the Avalanche on the board with just 21 seconds left to play in the period, helped largely by a 5-on-3 power play advantage. Matt Moulson and Jay Pandolfo put the Islanders in trouble by picking up high-sticking and holding penalties, respectively.

The Islanders went up, 2-0, early when Brian Rolston scored just 34 seconds into the period. Eight minutes into play, Michael Grabner almost had a breakaway but wound up in a 3-on-1 situation that saw him score the Islanders' third goal of the game.

The Avalanche continue to hold a shooting advantage over the Islanders, 31-23, but Al Montoya had been a brick wall in net until he let in the late goal. Can Jean-Sebastien Giguere keep the Islanders off the board if his teammates are able to score a few more goals? Twenty minutes remain to play.
