Isles fall 3-1 to Montreal for third straight loss
Sorry....was having wireless issues throughout the game. See game recap in post above.
Isles trail 1-0 after first period
Tomas Plekanec banked Mike Cammalleri's rebound in for a power-play foal at 2:42 to give the Canadiens a 1-0 lead and extend his goal streak to three games.
After the goal, goaltender Dwayne Roloson skated to the bench to get his right skate sharpened; might've lost an edge on the play.
Isles were 0-2 on the PP and outshot 12-7. Not creating enough quality chances against backup goaltender Alex Auld in his season debut.
Second of a home-and-home against the Habs for the Islanders. Two nights after a disappointing 5-3 loss in Montreal, the Islanders host the Canadiens at Nassau Coliseum.
Dwayne Roloson makes his second straight start tonight; Trent Hunter (foot) returns to the lineup.
Defenseman Bruno Gervais returns to the lineup...as a forward.
