ST. LOUIS, Oct. 24 -- Center Mikhail Grabovski scored with one minute left in overtime to lift the New York Islanders to a 3-2 win over the Blues on Saturday night, their first win in St. Louis in nearly 10 years.
The win snapped a five-game losing streak by the Islanders against the Blues and was their first win against the Blues since March 5, 2011 and their first win in St. Louis since Dec. 6, 2005.
Grabovski's first goal of the season came off an assist from center Frans Nielsen.
The Blues had rallied from a 2-0 deficit to tie the game in the third period on goals from defenseman Colton Parayko and left wing Alexander Steen.
The Blues cut the lead to 2-1 with their first goal in two games 2:26 into the period. Parayko scored his third goal of the season when his shot from just inside the blue line beat goalie Thomas Greiss, who might have been screened by Blues center Kyle Brodziak, who was in front of the net on the play.
Steen scored the tying goal at 10:51 when he deflected a shot by Parayko past Greiss.
The Islanders had built the lead on goals from right wing Kyle Okposo and center John Tavaras.
Okposo put the Islanders ahead with a power-play goal at 16:52 of the first period. While defenseman Chris Butler was off the ice for roughing, Okposo took a shot from the slot which squirted through the pads of Blues goalie Brian Elliott, who appeared to be screened on the play.
The Islanders increased the lead to 2-0 with 1:19 to play in the second period when Tavaras converted a drop pass from left wing Nikolay Kulemin and fired the puck over Elliott's right shoulder and into the net.
The goal extended Tavaras' scoring streak to six games with four goals and six assists over that span.
