NHL: N.Y. Islanders 5, Toronto 4

TORONTO, Feb. 14 (UPI) -- Ruslan Fedotenko scored two of the New York Islanders' four power-play goals Thursday in a 5-4 victory over Toronto.

Bryan Berard had a goal and two assists for the Islanders, who have won two straight following a seven-game losing streak. Rick DiPietro made 27 saves.


Toronto lost its second in a row.

New York had a one-goal lead going into the third period and Fedotenko made it 4-2 with the Islanders' fourth power-play score. Berard took a long slapshot, and after Vesa Toskala made the original save, Fedotenko jammed home the rebound.

After Toronto cut the deficit to 4-3, Freddy Meyer scored an empty-net goal with 52 seconds remaining. That goal became important when the Maple Leafs got a goal from Alexei Ponikarovsky with 19 seconds to play.

The four power-play goals equaled the Islanders' single-game season high.
