UNDATED (AP) — John Tavares scored one of the New York Islanders’ three-second period goals and then netted the shootout winner as the Islanders broke a five-game losing streak with a 4-3 victory over the New York Rangers.

Tavares followed Frans Nielsen’s goal in the opening round of the tiebreaker with one of his own. Evgeni Nabokov (nah-BAH’-kahv) stopped Marian Gaborik and Rick Nash to give the Islanders the elusive win. They had dropped eight straight at Madison Square Garden, including a loss there last week.
