The one highlight on Saturday for the New York Islanders came in the form of the captain.

John Tavares scored at 10:48 of the second period against the Bruins in Boston today, but it wasn’t just a normal goal. This tally was the captain’s 200th goal of his young NHL career.

Although the Tavares goal knotted the game up at 1-1, the Bruins’ David Pastrnak put home his 11th of the season with just nine seconds to go in the second period to provide his team with a lead they would not relinquish.

Pastrnak added on another in the third for comfort.
