Plus/Minus Thread: Islanders 4 (EN), Rangers 2; Tavares hat trick

A lot of pressure and one successful powerplay got the Islanders their first two goals. Two Islanders mistakes got the Rangers their two goals. The Islanders put it away in the third with a powerplay goal and an empty-netter, both by John Tavares. Oh...and Tavares had a hat trick.
