Parise Leads Wild Past Islanders
Shootout win is 10th straight on road
UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) — Zach Parise scored the tying goal midway through the third period, then added another in the shootout to help the Minnesota Wild beat the New York Islanders 2-1 Tuesday night for their 10th straight road win.
Parise's shootout attempt hit the post to the right of Jaroslav Halak and trickled in after it bounced off the goalie's leg.
Devan Dubnyk made 37 saves for the Wild.
John Tavares broke a scoreless tie late in the second when he jammed his team-best 34th goal of the season past Dubnyk at 19:36. Kyle Okposo and Anders Lee assisted. The point was the 300th of Okposo's career.
Tavares, Okposo and Frans Nielsen all failed to convert in the shootout for the Islanders.
Parise tied the game at 11:45 of the third with his 29th goal. Jason Pominville and Mikko Koivu had the assists.
