New York got goals from six players to spoil goalie Felix
Potvin's debut with the Bruins. Potvin, signed as a free agent
after playing last season with Los Angeles, allowed six goals --
four in the first period -- on 16 shots.
Patrice Bergeron, Boston's 18-year-old center, scored his second
goal of the preseason during a third-period power play. Michal
Grosek added a goal with 3:36 left for the Bruins.
Rick DiPietro made 28 saves for the Islanders. Tim Thomas
stopped all 10 shots he faced in relief of Potvin.
All four of New York's first-period scorers, as well as DiPietro
and Hunter, played at least part of last season with New York's AHL
affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers -- the main tenant of the
Arena at Harbor Yard.
