Islanders 2, Canucks 1, SO
UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Roberto Luongo made 34 saves against the team that let him get away, but couldn't stop Frans Nielsen in a shootout as New York beat Vancouver for its season-best third straight victory.
Nielsen scored on the first shot of the tiebreaker, and Joey MacDonald turned aside all three Canucks shooters - ending the game with a poke check against Alex Burrows. MacDonald stopped 31 shots through overtime.
Luongo, the Canucks captain, could've been the Islanders' prized possession after he was taken with the No. 4 pick in the 1997 draft. He appeared in 24 games with New York during the 1999-2000 season, but was traded when the team made goalie Rick DiPietro the face of the franchise.
Pavol Demitra gave Vancouver a 1-0 lead in the opening minute, and it stood up until Doug Weight tied it with a power-play goal in the second period.
Luongo is on an amazing run, one that recently featured a team-record shutout streak of 242 minutes, 36 seconds. During the just-completed homestand, Luongo went 4-1-1 and allowed only six goals - five on power plays.
