UNIONDALE, N.Y., Oct. 11 (UPI) -- Blake Comeau's two goals Monday propelled the New York Islanders to a 6-4 come-from-behind victory over the New York Rangers.

The Islanders also got goals from P.A. Parenteau, Josh Bailey, Matt Moulson and Frans Nielsen. Rick DiPietro made 29 saves in the win.

The Rangers got goals from Artem Anisimov, Michael Del Zotto and Brandon Dubinsky. Henrik Ludnqvist gave up five goals on 31 shots.

The Rangers had taken a 4-3 lead with just 7:14 to play in the third period when Anisimov scored on a one-timer off a feed by Marian Gaborik.

But the Islanders capitalized on penalties to Ryan Callahan and Marc Staal to score two power-play goals for a 5-4 lead.

Parenteau got the tying goal when he banged in a rebound and less than a minute later Comeau's one-timer put the Islanders ahead.

Nielsen got the final tally on an empty-netter that sealed the win.
