Isles Send Habs To 1st Regulation Loss In Month

Posted By Sam Greenberg On March 5, 2013 @ 11:49 PM In NHL | No Comments

Radek Martinek scored the tiebreaking goal eight minutes into the third period and the New York Islanders handed Montreal its first regulation loss in nearly a month with a 6-3 victory Tuesday night.

Martinek’s shot from the left point on a pass from Kyle Okposo eluded goaltender Carey Price at 7:56. It was the first goal of the season for Martinek, who hadn’t scored since Oct. 12, 2011, while with Columbus. John Tavares scored his team-leading 14th goal with 1:07 left before Colin McDonald closed the scoring with an empty-netter.

Brian Gionta’s power-play goal at 6:07 of the third — the 20,000th goal for the Canadiens since the NHL was formed in 1917 — tied the game at 3.
