Islanders' winning streak broken by Red Wings
The New York Islanders have enjoyed a great period of success and ahead of the road game against the Detroit Red Wings, New York was on a run of five straight wins. But, Saturday's game at Little Caesars Arena finished 3-0 and the winning streak was ended.
The first period was scoreless, and early in the second period, the Red Wings took the lead when Lucas Raymond opened the scoring.
Pius Suter then tallied a goal late, making the score 2-0. Adam Erne and Moritz Seider assisted.
In the end the 3-0 goal came from Dominik Kubalik who increased the Red Wings' lead, assisted by Andrew Copp, halfway through the third period. The 3-0 goal was the last one of the game.
Detroit improves to 6–3–2, while New York drops to 7–5–0.
This means Detroit are in third place and that New York are in third place.
The Red Wings travel to the New York Rangers on Sunday at 5 p.m. at Madison Square Garden. The Islanders will face Calgary at home on Monday at 7 p.m. at UBS Arena.
