Islanders lose 4-3 at Blackhawks in OT, take four-game skid out of winless road trip

CHICAGO (AP) — Seth Jones scored 22 seconds into overtime, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the New York Islanders 4-3 on Friday night.

Jason Dickinson had a goal and two assists for last-place Chicago, which had dropped four of five. Joey Anderson and Boris Katchouk also scored, and Petr Mrazek made 28 saves.

Jones’ wrist shot from the high slot was the first goal of the season for the defenseman.

Kyle Palmieri had a goal and an assist for New York, which lost its fourth consecutive game. Brock Nelson and Bo Horvat also scored, and Ilya Sorokin had 20 stops.

Chicago opened a 3-1 lead when Anderson made a perfect pass to a streaking Dickinson, who tapped it in for his 15th goal 5:10 into the third period. It was Dickinson’s first goal since his new two-year contract was announced by the team on Tuesday.

But the Islanders rallied on goals by Palmieri and Horvat. Palmieri tied it at 3 with his 11th on the season, a wrapround with 7:10 left in regulation.

The Blackhawks played without defenseman Connor Murphy and forward Ryan Donato. Murphy missed his third straight game with a lower-body injury, and Donato is recovering from an illness that also sidelined him for Thursday night’s 3-0 loss at Buffalo.

Chicago had a scoreless streak of more than 152 minutes before Katchouk got his fifth of the season 18:07 into the second period, tying it at 1. Katchouk was denied on a breakaway on a poke check by Sorokin, but he retrieved the puck, skated around and scored on a wrist shot from the high slot.

Anderson then finished a 2-on-1 with Colin Blackwell at 19:14, giving Chicago a 2-1 lead. Anderson shot it over a sliding Sorokin for his first goal since April 10 against Minnesota.

New York had jumped in front on Nelson’s 20th goal 6:09 into the first period. He scored on the Islanders’ first shot of the game, beating Mrazek low on the goaltender’s glove side.

The 32-year-old Nelson has eight seasons with at least 20 goals — all with New York.

Islanders forward Kyle MacLean made his NHL debut after he was recalled from the minors on Wednesday. MacLean’s father, John, is an assistant coach with the Isles and a former NHL forward.
