Rookies Rally for 5-4 Shootout Win vs Flyers

Islanders prospects claw back from three-goal deficit in rookie game in Allentown

The New York Islanders top prospects carved out a character 5-4 shootout win against the Philadelphia Flyers prospects on Wednesday night at PPL Center in Allentown, PA. Oliver Wahlstrom scored the shootout winner, as the Isles rallied from a three-goal deficit in a dramatic rookie contest. Felix Bibeau, David Quenneville, Samuel Bolduc and Otto Koivula scored in regulation for the Islanders. 

"I thought it was a pretty intense game for a rookie game," Bridgeport Sound Tiger Head Coach Brent Thompson said. "The work ethic, the character, the guys pulled together, they kept pushing and they got rewarded. I'm obviously very happy with the first game and what we can build from there."

 The Isles came out strong in the opening frame but put themselves on their heels after relinquishing back-to-back goals, 34 seconds apart in the waning two-minutes of play. The Flyers then cushioned their lead 3-0, five-minutes into the second period. Despite the deficit, the Islanders displayed discipline and were eventually rewarded for their efforts. 

Bibeau got the Islanders going in the second period with a goal on the doorstep off of a feed from Koivula. Quenneville doubled cut the deficit down 3-2, with a one-timer from the point midway through the second period. The Flyers retook a two-goal lead, six minutes into the third period, but the Islanders continued to press and tied the score with nods from Bolduc and Koivula.
