Rookie defenseman Thomas Hickey scored in overtime for his first NHL goal, and the New York Islanders rallied to snap the Montreal Canadiens' six-game winning streak, 4-3 on Thursday night.

Matt Moulson scored twice and Frans Nielsen added a goal in the third period for Islanders (7-9-1), who trailed 2-0 and 3-1 but came back to end a two-game slide and win for the third time in 10 games.

Max Pacioretty had two goals, and Travis Moen added one for the Canadiens (11-5-2).

After going his first 10 games without a goal, Pacioretty has four in three games.
