UNIONDALE, N.Y. — For one night, the New York Rangers‘ roster shake up worked.

Playing without benched veterans Wade Redden and Ales Kotalik, the Rangers responded to coach John Tortorella’s heavy hand and broke out of their offensive woes.

Ryan Callahan had two goals and two assists, and Henrik Lundqvist made 35 saves to lift the Rangers to a 5-2 victory over the Islanders on Thursday night that snapped a five-game losing streak (0-3-2) and gave them a split of the home-and-home series.

All it took was a glimpse at the postgame reactions.

Islanders Fight Back, But Lose in Shoot-Out

November 15, 2009

Playing in their third game in four nights, the Islanders showed grit and toughness in erasing a 4-2 third period deficit, but ultimately fell to the Panthers in a shoot-out.  It was the Islanders NHL leading 11th overtime game, and they were able to earn a point in their third straight road game. 

It was another strong start for the Islanders, who have scored 11 first-period goals in the past four games.  Tim Jackman gave the Isles the lead with a birthday goal just 16 seconds into the game.  Panther’s goaltender Tomas Vokoun entered the game with three shutouts in his last four starts, but did not look good early.  Josh Bailey set up the Islanders second goal, connecting with Trent Hunter who roofed one to the corner of the net to give the Islanders a 2-0 lead.
