Sure they still lost... BUT, this time, the last few minutes were the minutes that were worth watching.
Close but no cigar, Isles.
At least they didnt let Bryz continue his shutout streak. And they got two so their goal isnt looked at as just a fluke.
He can still take consolation that his Flyers shutout streak was humangous big.

The New York Islanders made a furious push in the final six and a half minutes of the third period against the Philadelphia Flyers, but fell 3-2 to their division rivals Thursday night at Nassau Coliseum.
The Islanders trailed 3-0 entering the final seven minutes, but Michael Grabner and John Tavares scored 35 seconds apart, sending a jolt of energy through the team.
“We didn’t get the results we wanted,” Matt Martin said. “But when we finally beat [Ilya Bryzgalov] I think we had some life in the arena and the fans were great in the last 10 minutes. It got us going again.”
