While it's only been a few hours since Patrick Roy was appointed as the head coach of the New York Islanders, he has already coached his first game and secured his first victory.

His goaltender, Ilya Sorokin, was very impressive, blocking 41 out of 43 shots directed at him. It must be said that when your coach is the great Patrick Roy, you strive to make a good impression.

Bo Horvat played the hero in overtime, marking a successful debut for Roy. In fact, he had difficulty hiding his joy, having waited nearly eight years between his last NHL victory and this one.
