Two days, two overtime winners for Cedric Desruisseaux.

The 19-year-old forward scored with 25 seconds left in the extra frame Sunday as the Charlottetown Islanders defeated the Acadie-Bathurst Titan 2-1. The Isles won 4-3 in overtime Saturday in Bathurst, N.B.

For the second straight day, the Islanders held a heavy shot advantage, but only Nikita Alexandrov falling down in the second period could beat Felix-Anthony Ethier in regulation. His goal tied the game 1-1 after Mathieu Desgagnes gave the visitors a 1-0 lead 20 minutes early while shorthanded.

Brendon Clavelle, Gaetan Jobin and Alexandrov had assists for Charlottetown while Remy Anglehart had the lone Titan helper.

Matthew Welsh stopped 18 shots for the win while Ethier was peppered with 56 shots in the loss.

Charlottetown was 0-for-6 on the power play and Acadie-Bathurst 0-for-4.

The Islanders standings improved to 28-25-5-0 while the last-place Titan are 11-38-4-4.

Charlottetown has nine games remaining in the regular season. They host the Cape Breton Eagles (37-17-2-1) Friday at 7:30 p.m. before playing three straight games with the Saint John Sea Dogs (28-29-1-0), who are chasing the Isles for fifth place in the Eastern Conference standings.
