UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) — Islanders defenseman Andrew MacDonald scored twice, John Tavares and P.A. Parenteau both had a goal and an assist in the first period, and the New York Islanders sent the sinking St. Louis Blues to their fourth straight loss with a 5-2 victory Saturday.
MacDonald, who entered his 100th NHL game with only three career goals, scored his third in two games.
Al Montoya made 21 saves, giving up Andy McDonald’s 14th of the season 3:26 into the third period that made it 3-1 and Chris Stewart’s power-play tally that brought the Blues within 4-2 with 9:42 remaining.
The Islanders won their second in a row at home over Western Conference opponents following an overall four-game skid (0-2-2). Rookie Michael Grabner netted his 26th goal with 7:35 left.
