04/06/2013 22:53 Islanders help playoff push with victory over Lightning
Matt Martin scored the go-ahead goal with less than seven minutes left in the third period and Evgeni Nabokov made 19 saves to lift the playoff-hopeful New York Islanders to a 4-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday night.
Matt Carle's second tour of duty in Tampa will be far better than his first. And paired with big Victor Hedman, we're going out on a limb to suggest he could deliver career numbers. His best work in Philly came alongside big, snarly Chris Pronger. Hedman isn't as "ugly" as Pronger, but his size will give Carle room to conduct the orchestra. Who'll benefit most? Steven Stamkos, Marty St. Louis, et al., who will find breaking out of the zone far easier than it has been in years. Fifty points are a stretch, but he could come close. Very, very close.
