The Islanders dropped a 2-0 decision to the last-place Shawinigan Cataractes on Saturday to finish their pre-Christmas schedule at 14-19-1-4 (won-lost-overtime losses-shootout losses). After starting the season with 10 wins in their first 13 games, the Islanders have won just four of their last 21 games, and are currently on a three-game slide.
Before 2,497 fans in Shawinigan, Que., the Islanders and Cataractes were scoreless through two periods of play.
Alexandre Grand-Maison opened the scoring at 7:48, and that goal was all the offence Maxim Legacé would require in registering a 32-save shutout against his former team. Alex Pawelczyk added an empty-net goal with 24 seconds remaining in regulation time.
Eric Brassard faced 38 shots in the Charlottetown goal.
The Cataractes go into the Christmas break at 9-25-2-1.
The Islanders’ next game is against the Acadie-Bathurst Titan at Eastlink Centre in Charlottetown on Saturday, Dec. 28, at 7 p.m.
