Islanders rally past Leafs, Blues blank Flyers

Updated: 

The New York Islanders completed their come-from-behind win in overtime, while the Philadelphia Flyers were shut out by the St Louis Blues

Brock Nelson scored with just over two minutes remaining in OT as the Islanders rallied to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 6-5 in NHL action on Monday.

The Maple Leafs had led 4-2 midway through the second period before the Islanders responded with two unanswered goals to level things up.

Toronto restored their lead late in the third period, only for Andrew Ladd to equalise for the Islanders, who were not to be denied a comeback in the additional period on home ice as they avoided a third consecutive defeat.

Goaltender Carter Hutton stopped 26 shots to lead the Blues to a 2-0 win over the Flyers.

Hutton claimed his third shutout of the season as Paul Stastny and Kenny Agostino scored for the Blues.

Meanwhile, the New Jersey Devils overcame the Buffalo Sabres 2-1 thanks to Pavel Zacha's go-ahead goal in the third period.
