Highly touted Islanders rookie center Ryan Strome scored the first goal of his NHL career.

With the Islanders on the power play early in the second period trailing 2-0, Strome got his squad on the board by putting a wrist shot past Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen — one of four Islanders goals in the period. That goal opened the floodgates for the Islanders, who went on to score six goals over a 24:38 span. Peter Regin, Brock Nelson, and Brian Strait also scored for New York.

Dallas built its lead on first-period goals by Jamie Benn and Erik Cole. But Lehtonen couldn’t make the margin stick. In total, he gave up seven goals on 43 shots. Valeri Nichushkin added a second-period power-play goal for the Stars.

BLUE JACKETS 4, RANGERS 3, SO

NEW YORK • Sergei Bobrovsky made 40 saves through overtime and two more in the shootout in his first action in over a month, and Brandon Dubinsky had a goal and assist against his former team in Columbus’ victory over New York.

Bobrovsky stopped Mats Zuccarello and Rick Nash in the tiebreaker, and Mark Letestu and Ryan Johansen scored against Henrik Lundqvist to win it.

Nash had tied it with his second power-play goal of the night, and ninth tally this season, at 6:55 of the third period as David Savard served a penalty for delay of game.

Defenseman James Wisniewski also had a goal and assist, and Cam Atkinson scored on a second-period breakaway to help the Blue Jackets win for the second time in five games.

Brian Boyle cut the deficit to 3-2 at 4:53 of the third, and Lundqvist made 36 saves through overtime for New York, which had won three of four on the road before returning home.

FLAMES 4, AVALANCHE 3

DENVER • Jiri Hudler and Joe Colborne had a goal and assist each, and Mike Cammalleri scored a power-play goal at 16:30 of the third period to lift Calgary over Colorado.

Sean Monahan also scored and Karri Ramo stopped 22 shots for the Flames, who broke out of an offensive slump to end a four-game skid.

Calgary came into the game having been shutout in three of its last four games. The Flames’ only goal since Dec. 23 came in a 4-1 loss to Philadelphia.

Nathan MacKinnon had two goals and Paul Stastny had a goal and two assists for the Avalanche, who had won three straight coming into the game.

CANADIENS 2, PANTHERS 1

MONTREAL • Brian Gionta scored the winner in the second period and Carey Price stopped 26 shots to lead Montreal over Florida.
