(NHL) Islanders defeat slumping Canucks
(03-11 16:39)

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 Vancouver 7-4.
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, 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, 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. --AP
