Tavares helps Islanders beat struggling Rangers 4-3 in SO

NEW YORK (AP) John Tavares came through in the shootout and helped the New York Islanders keep up their recent domination of their struggling crosstown rivals.

Tavares got the deciding goal in the shootout to lift the Islanders to a 4-3 win Thursday night, beating the Rangers for the eighth time in the last nine games. Anders Lee, Brock Nelson and Mathew Barzal scored in regulation, and Jaroslav Halak stopped 38 shots as the Islanders recovered after blowing a two-goal lead in the third to finish 2-2-0 on a four-game trip.

"They found some momentum and some energy and brought a lot (in the third period), but we did a good job for the most part to get it to overtime, get a point and find a way in the shootout," Tavares said.
