Eberle's OT goal lifts Islanders over Kings

(TSX / STATS) -- NEW YORK -- A chaotic final six minutes Saturday night might have snapped the New York Islanders out of a funk -- and deepened the one in which the Los Angeles Kings are mired.

Jordan Eberle capped a whirlwind sequence of events late in regulation and overtime Saturday night, when he scored 1:54 into the extra session as the Islanders came back from a two-goal first period deficit to beat the Kings 4-3 at Barclays Center.

The second multi-goal comeback of the season came at an opportune time for the Islanders (18-12-3), whose position in the Eastern Conference playoff race has grown tenuous during a nine-game stretch in which they've gone 3-5-1.
