MONTREAL (AP) Rookie defenseman Thomas Hickey scored in overtime for his first NHL goal, and the New York Islanders rallied to snap the Montreal Canadiens' five-game winning streak, 4-3 on Thursday night.
Matt Moulson scored twice and Frans Nielsen added a goal in the third period for Islanders (7-9-1), who trailed 2-0 and 3-1 but came back to end a two-game slide and win for the third time in 10 games.
