WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Michael Grabner scored on a breakaway 3:53 into overtime as the New York Islanders defeated the Winnipeg Jets 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Cal Clutterbuck sent a pass from around the blue line up to Grabner, who slipped between two Jets and beat Ondrej Pavelec.

The Islanders also got a goal and assist from Anders Lee and a goal from Colin McDonald to end a two-game skid. Jets captain Andrew Ladd scored his 16th and 17th goals of the season, tying the game 2-2 with 5:07 left for Winnipeg, which had won its last two games.

Islanders winger Thomas Vanek was a healthy scratch amid rumors he'll be traded before Wednesday afternoon's deadline. Captain John Tavares is out for the rest of the season with a knee injury he suffered playing for Canada in the Olympics.
