UNIONDALE, N.Y., March 2 (UPI) -- Blake Comeau
notched the first hat trick of his NHL career Tuesday as the New York Islanders skated past Chicago 5-3.
Jon Sim and Richard Park scored for the Islanders, while goalie Dwayne Roloson stopped 41-of-44 shots in the New York win.
The Blackhawks got goals from Brian Campbell, Patrick Kane and Dustin Byfuglien. Chicago goalie Antti Niemi was pulled after allowing three goals on 12 shots and was replaced by Cristobal Huet, who let in two goals on 11 shots.
The Hawks saw their four-game pre-Olympics winning streak snapped.
