Post-Game +/-: Canadiens 5 (EN), Islanders 3

Later, Petteri would score with the puck, too.

The New York Islanders were probably lucky to be tied 3-3 with the Montreal Canadiens with eight minutes left, having combined a mixture of missed passes, soft goals conceded and odd-man rushes allowed through two periods before mounting an inspired two-goal comeback in the third.

That respite was brief, however, as Frans Nielsen was caught on a second consecutive long shift and allowed countryman Lars Eller too much space to set up an ex-Islander for the game winner. The right team won on this night.

This is our instant-reaction post-game plus/minus thread. Such as:

+ After a drab first 41 minutes down 3-1, Josh Bailey and John Tavares each scored to tie it.
- That lasted all of two minutes, as ex-Isle Petteri Nokelainen took the lead back with a bullet
- Al Montoya: Looking tired and giving up some weaker goals lately. More on this in the recap later.

And so on.
