Kyle Okposo got his second goal of the game at 2:16 of overtime to lift the New York Islanders to a 3-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

Brock Nelson also scored and Jaroslav Halak had 28 saves as New York improved to 7-0-2 in its last nine games.

Brandon Saad and Cam Atkinson scored for Columbus, which entered with one win in its last seven (1-3-3). The Blue Jackets also had a potential winning goal in the final minute of regulation overturned by a video review.

Curtis McElhinney finished with 16 saves while making a second consecutive start since Sergei Bobrovksy suffered a strained groin late on Tuesday against the visiting Kings. Bobrovksy is expected to be on the shelf for three weeks
