Marlboro, MA- Princeton-bound goaltender Colton Phinney posted a 20 save shutout in his Islander debut and Tyler Whitney netted two goals in leading the Islanders Hockey Club to a 4-0 EJHL win over the Connecticut Oilers.
Whitney scored the only goal the Isles needed at 15:06 of the first period when he drove the net and redirected a Mike Jamieson feed from the left wing.
The Jamieson, Whitney and Mike Doherty line combined again on a line rush at 4:52 of the first to make the score 2-0. Whitney tipped a Doherty shot beating Oiler netminder Bruce Racine.
Two minutes later Ryan Callahan beat Racine with a power play tally for a 3-0 lead. Tom Muratore and Conor MacPhee earned assists on the play.
Early in the final period Ted McCarran broke into the Oilers zone on a two-on-one break with Brendan Robbins. The big righty looked off the defenseman and ripped a shot under the bar for the final tally of the game and a 4-0 lead.
The Islanders were 1 for 3 on the power play and held Connecticut scoreless on three power play attempts. The Islanders are back in action on Sunday against the South Shore Kings.
