Islanders push home winning streak to 6
Anthony Beauvillier scored in overtime to lift the Islanders to a 3-2 win over the Sabres on Saturday, extending the Islanders’ home winning streak to six games.
Beauvillier scored on a breakaway at 3:04 against Sabres goalie Linus Ullmark for his 10th goal of the season. He finished off a sequence in OT in which he got tangled up with Ullmark in the crease, then was tripped in the Sabres zone before he corralled the puck for the winner.
The Islanders improved to 13-2-1 overall between Nassau Coliseum and Barclays Center, while the Sabres had their threegame win streak snapped.
Semyon Varmalov made 33 saves for the victory.
Jordan Eberle had a goal early in the third to give the Islanders a 2-1 lead, but Sabres captain Jack Eichel tied it with a power-play goal at 18:14 after the Sabres pulled Ullmark for an extra skater.
Eichel has extended his points streak to 16 games when he assisted on Victor Olofsson’s second-period goal.
