On the second night of a back to back the Islanders lost in a shoot-out after leading for the first two periods. John Tavares picked up two assists, one on a really nice
semi no look backhand pass to the slot to Moulson. Lubomir Visnovsky had the other goal of the game for the Islanders which came on a power play. Nabokov was the goalie again and was fantastic except for a span of 6 minutes where the Blue Jackets scored their two goals. The Islanders lost in the shootout after Moulson once again scored, this time to keep the shootout going. It was a tough one to swallow but the Islanders have to be content with 3 points in their first 2 games.
