It was a game mostly won by a goalie.
After a seemingly endless string of shots fired between both teams, Ben Hutton managed to put the Canucks on the board ten minutes into the second period.
The Islanders’ Ryan Strome answered the goal with barely 50 seconds left in the 3rd, sending the game into overtime.
After a scoreless OT, Radim Vrbata managed to squeak a shot past Jaroslave Halak to win the game for the Canucks.
While the Islanders outshot the Canucks 48-26, it was Ryan Miller’s quick reflexes that won the day for Vancouver.
