    ISLANDERS 2, Canucks 2

    Vancouver survives overtime scare

  • Summary

     UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -- Brad Isbister's two goals and Felix Potvin's 32 saves helped the New York Islanders to a 2-2 tie against the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night.
     Mariusz Czerkawski and Chris Ferraro assisted on both of Isbister's goals, which enabled New York to pick up points in consecutive games for the first time this season. Potvin is the only goalie in the NHL to play every minute of his team's games.
     The Islanders had an apparent goal in overtime disallowed. Jorgen Jonsson scored at 1:50, but video review disallowed it. Kevin Weekes preserved the tie with an arm save on Claude Lapointe's rising wrist shot at 2:53, and finished with 27 saves.
     Steve Kariya and Brad May scored for Vancouver, winless in its last three meetings with the Islanders (0-1-2). Kariya's backhand from in close put the Canucks up 1-0 at 3:03 of the opening period. Isbister tied the game at 5:54 during a power play with a one-timer from the slot.
     May put Vancouver back in front at 16:28 when he stole a pass, came out front and on his second attempt, stuffed the puck past Potvin.
     Isbister tied the game with the only goal of the second period at 3:35, when, from a sharp angle, he banked a shot off Weekes' backside.
     New York lost defenceman Jamie Heward at 8:45 of the third period when he crashed head first into the boards after being hit from behind by Vancouver forward Donald Brashear. He sustained a concussion and will be re-evaluated today.
     The Islanders failed to register a shot on the subsequent three-minute power play and were almost scored upon, but Potvin made a glove save to stop Alexander Mogilny on a breakaway with 6:40 left.
