The 5 Hole: Golden Night in Sin City

With one game left before the All-Star break commencing this weekend, the New York Islanders were in desperate need of two points to close out their three-game roadie out West. Standing in their way of doing that, the biggest story in sports — the Vegas Golden Knights. Vegas has been on a magical carpet ride in their first year in the NHL, not only being an unthinkable 19-2-2 at T-Mobile Arena, but one of the top dogs in the Western Conference.

The Isles were looking to make five straight road games with at least a point, while Anthony Beauvillier looked to continue his torrid pace of late offensively.

In their first trip to Sin City, the Islanders came away with a 2-1 victory. Jaro Halak was brilliant with 38 saves, while Ross Johnston notched his first NHL goal. The Islanders head in to the break 5-2 in their last seven games. The best hits from late night Isles can be found below:
