SUNRISE, Fla., March 16 (UPI) -- Casey Cizikas scored the go-ahead goal in the third period Saturday and the New York Islanders held off Florida 4-3.

The Islanders had a 3-0 lead as the final frame began but the Panthers got scores from T.J. Brennan, Marcel Goc and Mike Santorelli within a 1-minute, 43-second span to tie it up.

New York then regained the lead when Cizikas got a pass from Colin McDonald from behind the net and one-timed a shot past Scott Clemmensen with 7:05 to go.

Kyle Okposo, Radek Martinek and Brad Boyes also scored for the Islanders, who improved to 5-1-1 in March.

Evgeni Nabokov turned aside 27 shots to earn the win.

Santorelli added an assist and Clemmensen finished with 21 saves for the Panthers.
