It was a hot night for young Nazem Kadri, who picked up 3 goals in the first 40 minutes of play.  He was dominant and creative in each of the goals, not only breaking hard to the net, but showing toe-drag on the first marker.

Toronto came to visit the Islanders for the second half of a back-to-back and its third game in four nights. The Leafs were a tired bunch after travel problems the night before.

Captain Phaneuf scored the winner 1.11 into overtime.
