Islanders win away from home. Really!

ITEM: New York Islanders end 14-game road losing streak

About freakin’ time. Of course, this could mean one less ping-pong ball for the John Tavares sweepstakes.

Of course, the Gorton’s Fishermen did this at the expense of the Atlanta Thrashers, so it really shouldn’t count, right?

And, in typical fashion, it wasn’t easy. New York led 4-0 at the end of one period, and saw Atlanta close to 4-3 with 11:24 to play before Kyle Okposo put the game out of reach.

The Isles hadn’t won on the road since Nov. 24, when they beat the Montreal Canadiens 4-3 in a shootout. New York won’t get a shot at back-to-back road wins until Feb. 5 against the Florida Panthers.
