    New York Islanders' Thomas Hickey, right, celebrates with John Tavares after scoring against the Montreal Canadiens during overtime.

    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.
