Tavares helps Islanders get past Pens in shootout

PITTSBURGH (AP) Embattled goaltender Jaroslav Halak is glad to be back and contributing to the New York Islanders' run to the playoffs.

Halak, after spending time in the American Hockey League, won for the first time since December when John Tavares scored in the shootout to lead the Islanders over the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 on Friday night.

"Anytime you win a game, it's always great," Halak said. "I think it's more special right now after being called up and playing my first game right now in this late stage of the season."
