(Newser) – The New York Islanders scored more than three goals for the first time in 23 games, and had a 4-2 victory to show for it in Pittsburgh tonight. Rookie Blake Comeau had two points, including his first NHL goal, as New York scored twice in 37 seconds in the third period. The Penguins fell to 4-10-1 against division rivals. Elsewhere:

  • Former Sabres Daniel Briere and Martin Biron didn't get the result they would have liked in their old building, as Buffalo topped Philly 3-2 on Friday. Jochen Hecht had the winning goal.
  • Blue Jackets goalie Fredrick Norrena extended the Kings' losing streak to six with 33 saves at home. Rick Nash was scoreless again for Columbus.
