Isles beat Rangers with pair of short-handed goals

Nate Thompson scored a short-handed goal to break a scoreless deadlock in the third period, and goalie Joey MacDonald held on after a barrage of shots in the New York Islanders' 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers on Tuesday.
Just 4:42 after Thompson scored, during a different Rangers power play, Richard Park also netted a short-handed tally _ the Islanders' league-leading sixth _ to make it 2-0. The Islanders got out of a frustrated Madison Square Garden with their best win of the season despite being outshot 36-19.
Thompson's goal was his first NHL point and it gave the Islanders a two-game winning streak following six straight losses (0-5-1), and moved them out of last-place in the league standings (4-7-1).
Markus Naslund wrecked MacDonald's bid for his first NHL shutout when he scored with 1:41 left.
Hurricanes 5, Maple Leafs 4, OT
At Toronto, Niclas Wallin scored 1:52 into overtime as Carolina blew a three-goal lead before pulling out a victory over Toronto.
Tuomo Ruutu, Dennis Seidenberg, Chad LaRose and Ryan Bayda also had goals for Carolina (7-3-2).
Mikhail Grabovski had two goals and Niklas Hagman and Mike Van Ryn also scored for the Maple Leafs (5-4-4).
Senators 2, Capitals 1, OT
At Ottawa, Mike Fisher scored his first goal of the season with just under 40 seconds left in overtime to give Ottawa a win over Washington.
Fisher took Daniel Alfredsson's pass and shot past Brent Johnson into an open left side with 39.9 seconds remaining in the extra period.
Dany Heatley scored his eighth goal of the season early in the second for Ottawa, which improved to 3-0-1 in its last four games.
Tomas Fleischmann drew Washington even at 1 with his fourth goal just 2:13 after Heatley scored.
Alexander Ovechkin returned to the Capitals' lineup after he missed two games in order to visit his ailing grandfather in Russia.
