. Andrew Ladd opened the scoring, his 16th of the season. The goal coming off a faceoff with Bryan Little picking up the assist. Colin McDonald tied the game late in the period and the first period ended 1-1, the Islanders outshooting the Jets 13-9. New York took the lead early in the second with Andres Lee scoring. Lee went in on a breakaway but was stopped by Ondrej Pavelec, however Lee batted the rebound out of mid-air and after video review the call on the ice stood. Shots in the second were 17-7 in favour of the Jets but they could not beat Anders Nilsson. Jets did tie the game at 14:53 of the third, Ladd scored on a breakaway for his second of the game and 17th of the year. Olli Jokinen had the only assist, the goal coming with the teams playing four on four. The Jets pressed and had some chances but despite outshooting the Islanders 11-5 in the period, it was off to overtime. Jets again had the better chances before Michael Grabner scored on a breakaway to end it. The goal coming at 3:51 of overtime. Ladd has now scored five goals in his last six games and six goals in the last 10 games. Zach Bogosian led the Jets in ice time at 26:22. Since the arrival of Paul Maurice, Bogosian is the leader in average ice time at over 25 minutes per game. He also led the Jets in shots on goal with six, tying a season high. Final shots on goal were 38-27. Another turning point in the game was the Jets going zero-for-five on the power play. The Jets also lost Mark Scheifele with a lower body injury, after he went knee on knee with Calvin de Haan. De Haan received a two minute tripping penalty on the play. Scheifele will be further evaluated Wednesday. Chris Thorburn was also shaken up after a first period fight with Matt Martin. The Islanders traded Andrew MacDonald earlier in the day, and scratched Thomas Vanek, the expectation being that Vanek will be traded as well. For Paul Maurice it was his 1100th regular season game as an NHL coach, and he had this to say about the game. "We came out very tight. I dont have the answers for you as to why. We did not take that team lightly. Youve got almost a group of guys that at times you wonder if they care too much, they really do. You could feel it tighten as they went. A lot of strange plays with the puck out there that I dont have an answer for how it happened. The power play was tight and things that are easy to do, werent. Wed relax, the chatter would pick up and wed play better. Handling all this and the injury is the challenge now. Our brains were going a hundred miles per hour and our feet were not. So we take this point, five of six since the break and move on. We werent winning our last 21 games." Jets play host to Los Angeles Thursday (TSN 1290), and Ottawa Saturday afternoon (TSN 1290).

. The fourth-year guard from Carleton University kicked off his varsity career with rookie of the year honours in 2011, before racking up three straight Mike Moser Memorial Trophies for outstanding player.TORONTO - With seven seconds remaining, the game all but wrapped up and moments after draining the biggest shot of the night, Kyle Lowry stepped to the line. As he recorded his 23rd and 24th points of the evening, a segment of the sellout Air Canada Centre crowd expressed their appreciation for the Raptors point guard with a smattering of MVP chants. Even Lowry, in the midst of a career and possible All-Star year, laughed it off. "If I win the MVP youll see pigs fly," he joked after leading his team to a bounce-back 94-89 victory over the Timberwolves Friday. Lowry connected on a season-best six three-point shots, none bigger than the one he hit from the corner with just under 15 seconds left to give the Raptors a seven-point lead and put the Wolves comeback hopes to rest. He wont be lifting an MVP trophy anytime soon - though he did ascend to 10th on NBA.coms "Race to the MVP Ladder" this week - but he is well on his way to representing the Raptors in New Orleans for next months All-Star Game. In nine games this month, the eighth-year vet is averaging 17.8 points and 8.0 assists while shooting a remarkable 52 per cent from long range. "Hes playing at a high level," Dwane Casey said. "This is the highest level hes played, the best I think hes played. I dont think hed tell you that." Casey was right, he wouldnt. "I feel good," Lowry responded, asked if hes playing his best basketball, also citing a productive half-season stretch he had with the Rockets in 2011-12. "Hes a tough competitor, plays hard all the time," said Rick Adelman, current Wolves bench boss and Lowrys former coach in Houston. "Hes jumped around to different situations but he was really good for us in Houston and it looks like hes playing that way now." Adelman, who Lowry called his favourite coach, gave the Philadelphia-native his first shot to start and play big minutes in the NBA. In Lowrys final season as a Rocket - with Kevin McHale replacing Adelman on Houstons bench - he appeared to be on the verge of a breakout. He averaged 15.6 points and 7.6 assists prior to the All-Star break and before a mysterious bacterial infection derailed the rest of his season. The Wolves coach said he never had a doubt that Lowry would get back to and even eclipse that level but still, many questioned whether he could be a positive leader at the point guard position. "Hes grown into that role of being a leader, hes matured as a man," Casey said. "Hes doing all the right things and those weree the only question marks with Kyle as far as the other coaches are concerned. Charles Mann Jersey
. " Lowry credits his personal success to his off-court growth as well as the work he put in during this past offseason. "Im just growing up," the 27-year-old said. "Ive got a son, a wife, a family, its one of those things where you just hit that moment and its just like, youve got to grow up sometime. This summer was a big summer for me. I got a chance to really work as hard as I wanted to and I got a chance to relax my mind and clear it and it seems to be working." With Rudy Gay - his best friend - in Sacramento, Lowry has finally found a balance between utilizing his ability as a scorer and facilitating a productive offence, also excelling on defence and leading the NBA in charges taken (he drew his 24th early in Fridays game). But more than anything else, its his leadership that continues to turn heads, rightfully so. "I didnt do nothing," Lowry said, asked about the teams performance against Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic, one of the toughest frontcourt duos in the league. "The big fellas did a great job tonight, they redeemed themselves. JV, Amir, Chuck, Patt, those guys played huge tonight and all I can do is treat them to lunch one of these days on the road." Lowry, like the rest of the team, recognized the importance of this game following one of their most disappointing efforts of the season in Boston on Wednesday. "We definitely wanted to redeem ourselves after that Boston game," said Amir Johnson, who added 19 points and held Love to 16 on 7-of-19 shooting. "We made it a goal to get stops, get every rebound and we did that tonight." The Raptors allowed an opponent season-high 19 offensive boards in Boston and appeared to be headed for another long night against the one of the NBAs topped ranked rebounding teams. Minnesota grabbed 10 off the offensive glass in the first half but was held to just two the rest of the way as Johnson and Jonas Valanciunas battled Love and Pekovic, keeping them both in check. "We had a bounce-back as a team from the other night," Casey said. We were disappointed that we were ambushed in Boston." "[It was] just a bounce back game for us and we needed it," Lowry echoed. "Tonight we did a great job of bouncing back against a team thats really good, I mean theyre a talented team, well coached. We did a good job of executing our game plan, they made it close but we pulled it out."
