It didn't take long for Garth Snow's deadline acquisition to pay off.
Shane Prince, acquired from the Senators for a third-round pick on Monday, scored a third period goal on Thursday to give the Isles a 2-1 lead in a game they'd eventually win 4-3 in overtime.
Just under nine minutes into the third, Kyle Okposo sent a cross ice feed to Prince cutting up the wing. Prince knocked the puck down out of the air with his stick, then in one motion rifled a shot that Jets goalie Michael Hutchinson got a piece of with his glove, but couldn't keep from the back of the net.
As Prince got the shot off, he received a slash on the wrist from Dustin Byfuglien that has Prince doubled over in pain.
Prince remained in the game, but it certainly looked like he was affected by the illegal slash (which was going to be called, but the goal wiped out the delayed penalty). Art Staple noted that Prince looked to favor his wrist as he reached for a puck in a shift later in the third, so this may be an injury that lingers for a game or two, I'm sure the Isles will keep a close eye on it.
It'd be a shame if Prince has to miss any time, because he's been a nice compliment to the existing forward group. What we saw on the goal was what Prince does best: he shoots the puck on net. When you're constantly putting shots on goal, something good is going to happen, and after some slick work to get the puck to his blade, Prince made the most of his opportunity.
