CHARLOTTETOWN, PEI. – The Acadie-Bathurst Titan finished off the month of November on the road as they travalled across the Confederation Bridge to tangle with the Charlottetown Islanders Friday night.

In the third period the Islanders finally found a way to beat Mark Grametbauer. Derek Gentile evened the score just 58 seconds into the final frame with assists to Keith Getson and Daniel Hardie. The game-winning goal came off the stick of Cole Edwards at 12:08 to give the Islanders another 2-1 win over Bathurst. With 44 saves in the loss, Mark Grametbauer was named first star of the game.
