Recap: San Jose vs. NY Islanders

San Jose, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Kyle Okposo tied the game with 37 seconds left and scored the game-winner in the shootout to lead the New York Islanders to a 3-2 win over the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday.

Thomas Vanek also scored and Kevin Poulin made a career-high 46 saves for the Islanders, who snapped a 10-game skid.

"As bad as we played in the first period, to stick with it all game and go into the third period down 2-0, to get this win was huge," Okposo said.

Patrick Marleau had one goal and an assist, Joe Pavelski added a goal and Dan Boyle finished with a pair of assists for the Sharks, losers in four straight. Antti Niemi made 26 saves in the setback.

"Gave up a goal in the first and last minute of the third," Sharks head coach Todd McLellan said.

New York trailed 2-0 entering the final frame. Vanek, though, cut the deficit in half with his marker just 51 seconds into the third. Okposo took a pass from John Tavares and skated in, cut back across the net and fired a shot, but Niemi managed to get a pad on it. With the puck floating around the crease, Vanek was able to get a stick on it and pound it home.

Tavares won a faceoff in the San Jose zone and dropped it back to Okposo, who ripped a wrister into the back of the net at 18:23 of the final frame to force overtime.

Marleau tallied on a power play 5:26 into the middle session. Marleau collected a rebound and the left circle and blasted it into the back of the night.

Boyle fired a shot that bounced off Poulin's pad right to Pavelski, who sent it into the back of the net.

New York had dropped 10 straight on the road ... New York finished 0-for-1 on the power play and the Sharks were 1-for-4 on the power play ... Tavares had two assists and has 25 on the year ... Okposo notched his 19th assist.
