Moulson, Grabner Rally Isles To Win Over Leafs

TORONTO (AP) — Matt Moulson and Michael Grabner scored two goals each, and the New York Islanders rallied for a 7-4 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night.

Moulson had one of four third-period goals for the Islanders (2-1), who overcame a 3-1 first-period deficit. Grabner had two goals, and Keith Aucoin also scored in the third for New York.

Toronto (2-2) fell to 0-2 at home after a solid 5-2 win in Pittsburgh on Wednesday night. Frustrated fans chanted “Let’s go Blue Jays” with 2:40 remaining.

Grabner gave New York a 4-3 lead at 3:27 of the third, firing a wicked wrist shot past Ben Scrivens for his second of the season. Aucoin scored his first just 1:08 later to put the Islanders ahead 5-3. That was it for Scrivens, who allowed five goals on 20 shots in his third start of the season.
