Isles prosper, then collapse

Via: New York Post

'New Buffalo captain Stu Barnes, the first to wear the "C" since Peca did two years ago with the Sabres, scored on a funny bounce to cut the Isles' early lead to 2-1 with less than two minutes to go in the first. Slicing through the slot, a hot knife through a buttery Isles defense, Barnes tapped in a rebound of J.P. Dumont's backhand attempt that ricocheted off Chris Osgood as the Isles continued to have the bounces go against them on their home ice.'
