Isles at Ducks

UPDATE: Isles and Ducks scoreless after two periods

Isles outshot Ducks 11-6 in the second but still no score throughout the first two periods. After two unsuccessful power-play attempts the Isles drop to 0-for-4 with the man-advantage on the game.

Radek Martinek dropped the gloves against Ducks center Ryan Carter midway through the second. A rare sight, but Islanders have got to be frustrated at this point

UPDATE: Isles and Ducks scoreless after first period

Scoreless after the first period, but a much better start for the Islanders, who controlled the play, finished their checks and were sound in their own end.

The team limited Anaheim to only one shot on goal in the first, and that didn't even come until less than two minutes to play in the period.
