UNIONDALE, N.Y., Dec. 31 (UPI) -- Matt Moulson got the eventual game-winning goal and donated an assist Saturday in the New York Islanders' 4-1 victory over Edmonton.

With the scored tied 1-1 late in the first period, New York's John Tavares broke in on net, forcing a commitment from Oilers goalie Devan Dubnyk. But he instead found Moulson alone in the crease with a behind-the-back pass, who buried it into an empty net and put the Islanders ahead for good.

Tavares and P.A. Parenteau each picked up a score and assist each while Matt Martin also found the net for New York.

Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov earned the win, stopping 28-of-29 shots.

Dubnyk finished with 25 saves and Sam Gagner scored as Edmonton dropped its ninth in 12 games.
