Kuhnhackl scores 2 goals, Islanders beat Canucks 5-2

NEW YORK (AP) Coming off three straight losses, the New York Islanders fell behind early. They took the lead with two quick goals and then pulled away in the third period for a confidence-building win.

Tom Kuhnhackl scored two unusual goals to lead the Islanders to a 5-2 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night.

"We definitely didn't have the start we wanted," Kuhnhackl said. "After they scored that first goal we had a great response throughout that first period. We knew they were going to have a push in the second period. We just had to weather the storm."
