Vid: Isles' Tavares Bunts One Home Against the Bruins

Thomas Vanek is finding that points come a lot easier when you have John Tavares on his line. The Islanders new winger notched a helper on this goal, but Tavares did all the work. Watch as Tavares stealthily sneaks out from the side of the net to bunt the flying puck into the twine. Great concentration, great hands, great goal.

The Islanders defeated the Bruins 3-1, and Thomas Vanek scored his first as an Islander--a rocket of a one-timer off a feed from Kyle Okposo--which you can see below. (Vanek has a goal and two assists and is a plus-3 after three games with the Islanders.)
