UNIONDALE, N. NMD On Sale .Y. -- Even before John Tavares became the new captain of the New York Islanders, he developed a knack for netting game-winning goals. Nothing has changed in that regard since he got the C on his sweater. Tavares put the Islanders in front late in the second period, and New York overcame a quick two-goal spurt by Edmontons Taylor Hall for a 3-2 victory over the Oilers on Thursday night. New York (3-2-2) has played six one-goal games this season and this time maintained their slim advantage throughout a scoreless third period against the skidding Oilers (1-6-1). The 23-year-old Tavares, who became captain last month, has points in six straight games. "We were really focused tonight and we kept their skilled players at bay," said Tavares, who led the Islanders with 28 goals last season. "I like the way we kept it together in the third. It was a good way for us to finish it off." Tavares beat goalie Devan Dubnyk with a snap shot in front with 1:07 left in the second off a pass from Kyle Okposo. It was his fourth goal of the season. Okposo had scored his second during a power play at 4:54 of the middle period to make it 2-2. Josh Bailey put New York ahead 1-0 in the first before Hall struck. Hall gave the Oilers a 2-1 lead when he scored a pair of goals just 8 seconds apart in the first. That broke the club mark of 9 seconds, set by Wayne Gretzky on Feb. 18, 1981. That was little solace for Hall and the struggling Oilers, whose only win was a 5-4 shootout home victory over New Jersey on Oct. 7. "Its an empty feeling because a loss is a loss," said the 21-year-old Hall, the No. 1 pick in the 2010 NHL draft, one year after Tavares had the same honour. "Its great to know I have the record but tonight wasnt our best effort. The wheels have really fallen off for us as these losses have piled up." Hall, who has three goals on the season, displayed plenty of frustration. "We had the lead and chance to grab the reins and we didnt do it," he said. "We should have done better. Its tough." Edmonton has had its struggles on Long Island, too. This was the Oilers seventh straight road loss to the Islanders and their ninth in 12 overall meetings with New York. They havent beaten the Islanders on the road since Dec. 14, 1999. The Islanders, 2-0-2 at home, surrendered late tying goals to Columbus and Buffalo before losing in shootouts at Nassau Coliseum. Against the Oilers, they played a strong third, outshooting Edmonton 15-8 and giving the Oilers few quality chances against Evgeni Nabokov, who made 27 saves. Okposos power-play goal, which came while Luke Gazdic served a tripping penalty, pulled the Islanders even. After Bailey opened the scoring at 9:59 of the first, Hall tied it with at 15:52 with a wrist shot from the left circle. He then knocked a rebound past Nabokov at 16:00. Except for the lapse during Halls scoring spurt, the Islanders dominated a briskly played first period, outshooting the Oilers 16-7. New York outshot Edmonton 40-29 overall. New Oilers coach Dallas Eakins was showing signs of exasperation, usually reserved for midseason slumps when teams tumble from playoff contention. After only eight games behind the bench, he was shaking his head. "I knew this renovation was going to be messy, but I didnt think it would be this messy," he said of the Oilers, who havent reached the playoffs since 2006. The 38-year-old Nabokov made several sharp saves for the Islanders, particularly on a one-timer by Nail Yakupov midway through the second. He recorded his 338th career win, 18th on the NHL list. "Your goalie has to be your best player sometimes, and Nabby certainly was, especially for the three penalties we had to kill," Islanders coach Jack Capuano said. "He was our best guy tonight." The Oilers, who have allowed a league-high 35 goals, were coming off a 3-2 loss at Pittsburgh on Tuesday after a 4-2 defeat at Washington the previous night. NOTES: The teams will meet March 6 in Edmonton. ... The Oilers are 0-3-1 on a six-game trip that continues in Ottawa on Saturday and concludes in Montreal on Oct. 22. ... The Oilers were missing centre Sam Gagner (broken jaw) and defenceman Corey Potter (back). ... Islanders fans booed Edmontons Ryan Smyth every time he touched the puck. Smyth left the Islanders after playing only 18 games after a heralded trade late in the 2006-07 season. NMD For Sale .

The Canadians were without captain Nathan Hirayama, ruled out by injury. Canada finished 12th in last years series standings. In Sundays final, first-half tries from Ben Lam and Tim Mikkelson gave New Zealand a 12-0 lead but England hit back just before the break when Tom Powell burst through to touch down from a quickly taken tap penalty to reduce the deficit to just five points. But evergreen captain DJ Forbes, who had a huge impact on the final day with his bustling play at the breakdown, quickly put New Zealand back in command, stretching the lead after receiving a hugge cut-out pass from Sherwin Stowers to score uncontested.

Despite a second try by Lam being overturned, and the winger being penalized for an off-the-ball offence, the men in black had too much firepower and sub Sam Dickson sealed victory with his sides fourth try. The victory allowed New Zealand to regain the lead from South Africa who had entered the Hong Kong Sevens holding a two-point lead. With two more legs remaining in Scotland and England in May, New Zealand top the standings with 136 points, seven points ahead of South Africa who stumbled badly after losing in the Cup quarter-finals to England, 14-7. Fiji are third on 112 while England fourth on 105. England had booked its berth in the Cup final with a 17-7 victory over Fiji in the semifinal.

Japan became the first Asian team to win a core team spot on the World Series when it won the qualifying tournament defeating Italy 26-5. Japan will play in the remaining two legs this season in Scotland and England, and all nine legs in the World Series next season. ' ' '
