The 5 Hole: A Miracle in Montreal

It’s been a good start to the playoff push for the New York Islanders. They came out of the bye week Saturday afternoon and walloped the Rangers at The Garden 7-2 for their second win in a row, and first win on the road in their last eight games. They were looking to keep their strong play going as they paid a visit to Montreal for a showdown with the Canadiens.

It was another homecoming for Anthony Beauvillier, while Thomas Greiss got the call for the first of a back-to-back for the Isles. Michael Dal Colle was also looking to secure his first NHL point.

In front of a national-televised audience, the Islanders played a wild affair in a 5-4 overtime win. Thomas Greiss made a remarkable 52 saves, while John Tavares won the game in the extra session. That’s three wins in a row for New York, who are right back at it tomorrow night against New Jersey. Top hits from Isles Twitter can be found here from tonight’s victory:
