The Islanders beat the Coyotes 3-2 at home Friday night to get back on track after a loss on Tuesday to San Jose. Meanwhile in Allentown, Pa., the team’s AHL affiliate beat the Lehigh Valley Phantoms 5-2 and the deciding goal was a combination of two names Islanders fans hope to hear on the big club soon.
Just before the end of the second period, Joshua Ho-Sang set up Michael Dal Colle for the latter’s first professional goal. The two played on a line together with center Tanner Fritz, who got the secondary assist. Ho-Sang slid the puck just behind the outstretched legs of defenseman Samuel Morin and Dal Colle knocked it past goalie Anthony Stolarz to put Bridgeport up 3-1.
