Grabovski scores again, sets Isles on way past Flames

Teammates and coaches have lauded Islanders forward Mikhail Grabovski this season for his solid puck possession, willingness to work in the “dirty areas” and aptitude in the faceoff circle.

But for the second straight game Monday night, Grabovski, a staple on the Isles’ third line, contributed in a much more tangible way — by finding the back of the net in a pivotal moment.

Two days after scoring in overtime at St. Louis, Grabovski netted another key goal, this time slotting a power-play goal in the second period to spark the Islanders to a 4-0 victory over the Flames before 11,582 at Barclays Center.

Mikhail Grabovski nets a goal for a second straight game, opening the score Monday vs. the Flames.

“He’s going to get some points offensively. He’s going to be a threat for us,” coach Jack Capuano said of Grabovski. “He can play in all situations.”

Meanwhile, goaltender Jaroslav Halak, making his fourth start since returning from injury, saved all 29 Calgary shots for his second shutout of the season. Halak and the Islanders’ penalty-killing unit also rendered the Flames scoreless on three power plays, bringing their season PK percentage to over 91%.

The Islanders score three goals – one courtesy of Frans Nielsen (51) – in the third period.

“Guys are doing a pretty good job out there as far as keeping them on the outside,” Halak said. “It’s always good that you can always count on guys back there, that they will do their job.”

Grabovski got his chance to put the Isles ahead after the squad’s power-play unit fizzled in two chances.

A Brandon Bollig interference penalty gave the Islanders their first opportunity of the night just less than halfway through the second period, but John Tavares and company failed to cause any danger and mustered just one puck on net in the two minutes.

A similar trend unfolded about three minutes later, when Dougie Hamilton was called for a delay of game and the Isles went up a man again. After a stagnant minute, though, Jack Capuano sent Grabovski onto the ice with Josh Bailey and Johnny Boychuck, among others, and was rewarded.

Boychuck flicked a pass around the boards and behind the net that Bailey grabbed in the far corner. Bailey jabbed the puck off the wall and centered to an open Grabovski in the slot. The Belarusian forward settled the puck off his right skate and snapped a lefty shot past the glove of goaltender Joni Orto to break the scoreless tie.

Frans Nielsen sandwiched a pair of insurance goals around a Cal Clutterbuck score to seal the Islanders’ second victory in a row.
