The Islanders went ahead early second period with Kyle Okposo’s goal.

Brock Nelson took a feed from Josh Bailey and ripped a wrist shot to give the Islanders a 3-1 advantage before the third.

Colborne started the rally at 11:29 when he knocked in a rebound off the end boards to make it 3-2.

Monahan backhanded to tie it at 14:22, before Colborne scored with a tip-in from eight feet for the win at 15:41 after deflecting Giordano’s slap shot.
