Recap: Anaheim vs. NY Islanders

Anaheim, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - John Tavares scored his second goal 2:18 into overtime, lifting the New York Islanders to a 3-2 win over an Anaheim Ducks team minus its two best players.

The Islanders went on a power play in the extra session when Sami Vatanen elbowed Calvin de Haan. Tavares fired a wrist shot along the ice from the high slot that deflected in off the right pad of Jason LaBarbera.

Kyle Okposo also scored a power-play goal and Jaroslav Halak 32 saves for the Islanders, who snapped a three-game losing streak.

Matt Beleskey and Emerson Etem had the goals for the Ducks, while LaBarbera finished with 33 saves.

Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf and leading scorer Corey Perry missed the opener of a four-game homestand with flu-like symptoms.

"We fought pretty hard and we played hard despite missing a few key guys," Beleskey said.

The Islanders went ahead 2-0 on Okposo's goal 10 seconds into the second period, but the lead evaporated before the intermission.

Good puck movement on an Anaheim power play resulted in Beleskey tapping in a feed from Ryan Kesler at 9:15.

"I thought we were really dictating the play until we gave up that power-play goal," said Islanders head coach Jack Capuano.

Etem beat a screened Halak with a wrist shot from between the circles with 1:09 remaining.

The Ducks had a go-ahead goal wiped out by a video review at 1:31 of the third period.

Tavares buried a rebound to open the scoring at 3:38 of the first period.
