VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Matt Martin scored the winner in the Islanders’ seven-goal third period, and New York erased a three-goal deficit in the final frame to beat the Vancouver Canucks 7-4 on Monday night.
Martin made it 5-4 at 10:04 for the third for the Islanders, who reversed a recent trend and rallied late instead of squandering a lead.
Josh Bailey, Ryan Strome, Calvin de Haan, Frans Nielsen, Anders Lee and Cal Clutterbuck also scored for the Islanders (25-33-9), who scored four times in the first 6:22 of the third.
The Islanders tied their team record for goals in a period, matching the mark set in the second period of a 9-4 win over the New York Rangers on Dec. 23, 1978.
Chris Higgins, Henrik Sedin, Ryan Kesler and Chris Tanev scored for the Canucks (29-28-10), who lost for the 12th time in 14 games.
Evgeni Nabokov made 20 saves in the win. Eddie Lack stopped 21 shots for the Canucks.
