NHL: New York Islanders 4, Montreal 3 (OT)

MONTREAL, Feb. 21 (UPI) -- Rookie defenseman Thomas Hickey scored his first NHL goal Thursday with 1:48 left in overtime, boosting the New York Islanders over Montreal 4-3.

New York overcame a 3-1 deficit and held the Canadiens scoreless for the final 31:30 to end Montreal's five-game winning streak.

Montreal built its early lead thanks in part to two goals from Max Pacioretty, but Matt Moulson countered with a pair of scores for New York and Frans Nielsen tied it for the Islanders with the only third-period goal.

Hickey came through in overtime as he played in his ninth NHL contest.

Evgeni Nabokov made 30 saves for the Islanders. Carey Price gave up all four goals on 25 shots.
