PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Cal Clutterbuck scored the deciding goal in the seventh round of the shootout to lead the New York Islanders to a 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.
Clutterbuck also scored in regulation for the Islanders, as did Mikhail Grabovski. Frans Nielsen got a puck past Steve Mason on the first shot of the shootout, and Wayne Simmonds scored on Philadelphia’s last tying attempt in the third round.
After Clutterbuck’s wrister got past Mason, Sean Couturier was denied by Jaroslav Halak on the tying attempt and Philadelphia’s season-high four-game winning streak was over.
Nick Schultz and Chris VandeVelde scored in regulation for the Flyers.
