UNIONDALE Custom Los Angeles Kings Jerseys , N.Y. (AP) — New York Islanders coach Barry Trotz believes his team’s success can be attributed to their simple and fundamentally sound play.Michael Dal Colle got the tiebreaking goal as the Islanders scored three times in less than five minutes late in the third period to rally for a 4-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night.Casey Cizikas, Mathew Barzal and Brock Nelson also scored to help New York stretch its point streak to eight games (6-0-2) and increase their lead atop the Metropolitan Division to four points over Washington and Pittsburgh.“If you don’t show up to work in this business you’re not going to have success,” Trotz said. “It’s still a workman’s league. You still have to put the work boots on.”Ryan Pulock had assists on each of the third-period goals and Robin Lehner stopped 34 shots.Dal Colle’s goal was the second of his career — with both coming this season and both standing as game-winners. Trotz likes how the fifth overall pick in the 2014 draft has meshed with and veteran linemates Leo Komarov and Valtteri Filppula.“That line is effective,” Trotz said. “You don’t look at the numbers. You look at the intangibles. … Those are the things analytics can’t describe but only a room can.”Anze Kopitar had a goal and an assist, Ilya Kovalchuk also scored and Dustin Brown had two assists for Los Angeles. Jonathan Quick finished with 28 saves.The Kings took a 2-1 lead with 6:45 left in the third as Brown’s shot from the slot deflected off Kovalchuk’s skate and through Lehner’s legs.However, Barzal tied it just 31 seconds later as he scored from the right side off a pass from Pulock for his 15th.Dal Colle then put the Islanders ahead when he deflected Pulock’s point shot past Quick with 2:23 left and Nelson’s empty-netter 52 seconds later sealed the win and ended the Islanders’ two-game skid (0-0-2).“We actually played (well) for 55 minutes. I think that was one of our better efforts, quite honestly,” Brown said. “We just kind of lost the intensity there for a few minutes and they found a way to get a go-ahead goal late. (It’s) something we just have to take positives from. (I) think we played really hard for the whole game, but those details are the difference between winning and losing.”The second — and final — meeting of the regular season between the Metropolitan Division leaders and the last place team in the Pacific had a playoff feel throughout. Even though Los Angeles outshot New York 36-32 , most of the shots were from the outsides as both teams were conscientious of surrendering the slot and prime scoring areas.The Islanders started quickly, outshooting the Kings 8-1 in the first 6:24, capped off by Cizikas’ rebound goal, his 12th, at 6:09.The Kings tied it 1:58 later as Kopitar tapped a cross-ice feed from Alex Iafallo past Lehner for his 15th.Lehner and Quick then matched each other save-for-save until the final 7 minutes of the game.Lehner had three saves on Kovalchuk; first on a one-timer from the left circle on the power play, with a diving save late in the second, and finally gloving a slap shot during a Kings man advantage early in the third.“He played awesome, again,” Islanders defenseman Johnny Boychuk said. “He’s been playing awesome all year. Both our goaltenders and they’ll have to continue to do that to have success.”Quick made three sprawling saves on an Islanders power play in the first Minnesota Wild T-Shirts Authentic , and in the second he dove to stop Devon Toews‘ shot from the slot.The Kings’ goalie also benefited from his equipment as his mask stopped Cal Clutterbuck’s shot with 1:15 left in the second, and Carl Hagelin’s backcheck snuffed out an Islanders 2-on-1 midway through the third to keep the game deadlocked at 1-all.NOTES: New York swept the season series. The Islanders won the previous meeting 7-2 at Los Angeles on Oct. 18. … Prior to the game, the NHL announced Tampa Bay Lightning RW Nikita Kucherov was fined $5,000 for “a dangerous trip” against Islanders D Scott Mayfield in the first period of New York’s 1-0 shootout loss Friday night. … Los Angeles scratched C Nate Thompson, D Sean Walker and RW Matt Luff. … RW Tom Kuhnhackl, D Luca Sbisa and LW Ross Johnston sat out for New York. … The announced attendance was 13,917 — the Islanders’ fifth sellout in eight games at Nassau Coliseum.UP NEXTKings: At the New York Rangers on Monday night in the second of a season-high six-game trip.Islanders: At Boston on Tuesday night. CHICAGO — If the New York Rangers were attempting to find a way to build some confidence as they embark on a nine-day, four-game swing, Mika Zibanejad provided a performance the Rangers hope they can build on.The Rangers open their trip west on Wednesday against the Chicago Blackhawks fresh off a 5-2 victory over the Florida Panthers that was sparked by Zibanejad Minnesota Wild Hoodies Authentic , who tallied two goals and two assists in the victory on Monday night.New York was efficient offensively in the victory, netting four goals in just 19 shots as the Rangers continued to play well at home, where they have won three of their past five games. Now, as they prepare for Wednesday’s game in Chicago and three more games in California before they return back to Madison Square Garden on Nov. 4, the Rangers will look to do what they can to replicate Tuesday’s victory on the road.Article continues below ...New York is 0-2-1 in road games this season. Rangers coach David Quinn is hoping that the performance his team got from Zibanejad against the Panthers can help provide some magic in the upcoming road trip.“I can’t tell you how happy I am for him that he’s getting rewarded statistically, because I know early on he was playing really good hockey and not getting rewarded,” Quinn told reporters following Tuesday’s victory. “I’ll tell you, he’s a complete player. I knew he was a good player before I got this job, I didn’t know he was this good. This is a guy that does a little bit of everything — he’s got skill Minnesota Wild Hats Authentic , he’s tough, he can skate. And he’s an unbelievable guy, too. He’s a fun guy to be around and we’re lucky to have him.”Tuesday’s win followed up a Rangers loss over the weekend in which New York could only manage one goal against the Calgary Flames on 45 shots. But after showcasing a much different result Tuesday against the Panthers, the Rangers hope to follow a similar game plan Thursday against Chicago.“I think we were shooting pucks,” Zibanejad told reporters. “We were moving it quickly. We took advantage of the way they played. We got shots on goal and pucks to the net and it’s not much more difficult than that.”Like the Rangers, the Blackhawks enter Thursday coming off a much-needed bounce-back performance. Brandon Saad scored a pair of goals in a 3-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday that came just two days after a forgettable 6-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday in which Chicago allowed 55 shots on goal, including a record-setting 33 in the second period alone.Corey Crawford, who made his third start of the season on Tuesday, finished the game with 24 saves.As important as it was for the Blackhawks to get back on track in the midst of a three-game homestand Custom Minnesota Wild Jerseys , Saad’s performance may have been equally vital. Saad had been relegated to the fourth line and Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville repeatedly told reporters he needed to see more from Saad.Saad responded on Tuesday and now hopes to use the two-goal game as a reminder that he can be an effective part of Chicago’s scoring attack when needed.“I thought (Saad) had the puck way more, I thought he took it to the net more and I think his speed was noticeable,” Quenneville told reporters Tuesday, according to the Chicago Tribune.
