Islanders hold off Lightning, 4-3

UNIONDALE, N.Y. — David Ullstrom scored early in the third period to give the Islanders a big lead, and New York held off the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3 Monday.

 
Coach Jack Capuano returned to the Islanders and guided them to their first win of the season. He missed the opening-night loss to New Jersey on Saturday because of surgery to remove a kidney stone. Michael Grabner, Matt Martin and Kyle Okposo scored in a 12-minute span of the second period to put the Islanders ahead 3-0. Ullstrom gave New York a four-goal lead 91 seconds into the final period.
 
Martin St. Louis, Benoit Pouliot and Steven Stamkos scored in a 5½-minute stretch, pulling Tampa Bay within a goal with 12 minutes left. The Lightning couldn’t get anything else past Evgeni Nabokov, who stopped 23 of 26 shots.
 
Anders Lindback allowed all four of New York’s goals on 44 shots.
 
SENATORS 4, PANTHERS 0
OTTAWA — Kyle Turris scored twice and Craig Anderson made 31 saves as the Ottawa Senators shut out the Florida Panthers in their home opener.
 
Anderson, making his second straight start to open the season, picked up his 20th career shutout. Jim O’Brien and Jakob Silfverberg, with his first NHL goal, also scored for the Senators.
 
Jose Theodore was strong in defeat for the Panthers, finishing with 33 stops.
 
BLUES 4, PREDATORS 3, SO
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — T.J. Oshie and Alexander Steen scored in the shootout, and the St. Louis Blues edged the Nashville Predators.
 
The Blues won the Central Division last season, but the Predators won the season series 4-1-1 with three of those games going to a shootout. This time, the Blues had the only goals in a shootout that lasted only two rounds. Brian Elliott, who came off the bench in the second, stopped Craig Smith and Martin Erat to get the win.
 
Rookie Vladimir Tarasenko had a goal and two assists for St. Louis. Andy McDonald had a power-play goal and an assist, and Alex Pietrangelo’s goal tied it up in the third period.
