ATLANTA - Dustin Byfuglien scored at 1:30 of overtime to give the Atlanta Thrashers a 2-1 victory over New York on Sunday, extending the Islanders' winless streak to 13 games.

The Islanders have their longest winless streak since a 14-game slide Feb. 13-March 15, 1990. That streak included three ties.

Byfuglien, a playoff star for the Chicago Blackhawks last season, leads the NHL with four winning shots this season. Ondrej Pavelec stopped 28 shots for Atlanta.

New York's Michael Grabner opened the scoring with 13 seconds left in the second period, and Nik Antropov tied it on a power play early in the third.

The Islanders have only 12 goals in their last 11 games.

DETROIT (AP)—Henrik Zetterberg tied it on a power play with 3.2 seconds left in regulation and goalie Jimmy Howard off for an extra attacker, and Nicklas Lidstrom scored at 1:38 of overtime for Detroit.

Zetterberg had two goals, Lidstrom added two assists and Pavel Datsyuk had a goal and two assists. Johan Franzen also scored for Detroit, which trailed 4-2 midway through the third period. Brian Rafalski had three assists and Howard made 23 saves.

Jarome Iginla had two goals and an assist and Niklas Hagman and Alex Tanguay also scored for Calgary. Miikka Kiprusoff stopped 33 shots. Iginla has five goals and an assist in his last two games.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP)—Ales Hemsky scored the go-ahead goal with 6:31 left in the third period, and Devan Dubnyk made 19 of his 38 saves in the first period for Edmonton.

Sam Gagne and Taylor Hall scored 1:41 apart in the second period, helping send the Ducks to their fifth straight loss following a six-game winning streak. The victory was only Edmonton's third in its last 17 games.

Tom Gilbert was credited with an empty-net goal with 16 seconds left after Anaheim's Corey Perry pass attempt from behind the Edmonton goal went the length of the ice into his own goal.

The Ducks, playing without Teemu Selanne because of a groin injury, got goals from Bobby Ryan and Saku Koivu 22 seconds apart in the second period.

VANCOUVER (AP)—Taylor Pyatt scored his second goal of the game 5:52 into the third period and Phoenix extended its winning streak to six games.

Defenceman Keith Yandle walked into the high slot untouched and fired a shot that bounced off Pyatt and under goalie Roberto Luongo's arm.

Pyatt, a former Vancouver player, put the Coyotes up 2-0 early in the second period. But Christian Ehrhoff and Tanner Glass scored to tie it before the period ended.

Scottie Upshall also scored, Ilya Bryzgalov made 25 saves and Phoenix, coming off wins in Calgary and Edmonton, swept a Western Canadian road trip for the first time. The Coyotes have recorded at least a point in eight straight games (6-0-2).
