Islanders breathe sigh of relief after shootout win

(TSX / STATS) -- NEW YORK -- Jaroslav Halak nearly let it get away twice but did just enough between the pipes to give the New York Islanders a win against a rival.

Halak allowed a bad-angle goal late in the third period that tied the game and accidentally knocked a puck into his own net during a shootout, but his 38 saves and final two stops in the shootout helped the Islanders survive in a 4-3 victory against the New York Rangers on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden.

The Islanders entered the third period with a 3-1 lead but sloppy play led to Mats Zuccarello cutting the lead in half and Kevin Hayes evening the game at with a backhander from along the goal line that squeezed between Halak and the short-side post.
