Another disappointment for Roy and the Islanders

However, these hopes evaporated when Tomas Tatar defeated Ilya Sorokin in the shootout.

Additionally, the game started poorly for the local favorite, with Kraken striker Matty Beniers scoring the first goal of the game just 5:27 into the first period.

At the end of the second period, Kyle Palmieri tied the two teams, sending the game into overtime.

With this loss, the Islanders are 3-3-2 since Roy's arrival on the bench. Mathew Barzal's teammates are three points behind the eighth and final spot, which grants access to the playoffs in the Eastern Association.

Lightning spoils Marchand's 1000th game

The Tampa Bay Lightning spoiled Brad Marchand's 1,000th game in the National Hockey League, winning 3-2 in a shootout against the Boston Bruins.

At least the Bruins captain had a productive night, contributing to goals from Charlie McAvoy and James Van Riemsdyk in the second period.

Previously, Erik Cernak and Nikita Kucherov ensured that the Lightning took a 2-0 lead at the start of the game. However, it was Brayden Point who gave the visitors victory.

Andrei Vasilveskiy was solid, stopping 36 of the 38 shots he faced. Jon Cooper's men are in third place in the Atlantic Division. As for the Bruins, they are still at the top of the East.

A hat trick for Tkachuk

Brady Tkachuk stood out in the Ottawa Senators' 6-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

At the end of the second period, the captain of the Ottawa club took advantage of a pass from Claude Giroux on the power play to beat goalkeeper Daniil Tarasov. Ridly Greig, who made headlines last weekend by scoring an empty-net goal with his slap shot against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday, scored his second goal in as many games.

Claude Giroux and Erik Brannstrom also shined for the Senators. Dmitri Voronkov, Boone Jenner and Jack Roslovic provided the answers for Pascal Vincent's team.

This victory is the fifth in a row for Jacques Martin's players. They will try to score their fifth straight goal on Thursday against the Anaheim Ducks.
