New York Islanders
The New York Islanders acquired the negotiating rights to potential free agent defenseman Dan Boyle from the San Jose Sharks for a conditional pick in next year’s draft.
“I thought some guys worked hard and played a good game,” Islanders coach Jack Capuano said. “Again, with our club we need all 20 guys going, and we didn’t have all 20.”
Brent Burns scored a power-play goal 1:07 into overtime to give the surging Sharks a 3-2 victory over the New York Islanders on Saturday night.
