TORONTO, Jan. 7 (UPI) -- Calvin de Haan notched his first NHL goal during a third-period outburst that sent the surging New York Islanders past Toronto 5-3 Tuesday.

De Haan, a 2011 first-round draft pick by the Islanders, unleashed a long wrist shot from the blue line that deflected off a prone Dion Phaneuf and got past Jonathan Bernier for a 4-2 New York lead.

Frans Nielsen and Cal Clutterbuck also scored in the third period as the Islanders, coming off a 7-3 home rout of Dallas Monday, reeled off a fifth win in six games.

John Tavares supplied three assists.

Kyle Okposo and Michael Grabner added one goal each for New York.

Kevin Poulin earned the win with 23 saves.

Mason Raymond, Tyler Bozak and Joffrey Lupul scored for the Maple Leafs.

Bernier finished with 20 stops.
