UNIONDALE, N.Y. - The Chicago Blackhawks were trying to extend the longest winning streak in the NHL this season. The New York Islanders were trying to keep their worst skid from getting any longer.On a raucous night at Nassau Coliseum, both sides had good reason to believe they would be successful.After Patrick Kane gave the Blackhawks the lead in the third period, the slumping Islanders found their game and the net — twice in 51 seconds — to rally for a 3-2 victory on Saturday.We werent happy with the last three games, thats no secret, Islanders captain John Tavares said. Weve got a good team and we know how to respond, and we know we have to get better.The Blackhawks provided a great test for the Islanders (20-10), one of the NHLs surprise teams this season.When Kyle Okposo and Lubomir Visnovsky struck in quick succession, Chicagos winning streak was over at eight, and New Yorks losing run was snapped at three. The Islanders are the first Eastern Conference team to 20 wins.Im not a hero, said Visnovsky, whose second goal of the season was the winner. I try to play the best that I can. Sometimes its not easy and sometimes you look like a hero. Today I look like a hero.There were plenty of players who could claim that title on this night. Cal Clutterbuck scored 6 seconds after Daniel Carcillo gave Chicago a 1-0 lead in the second period. Okposo knotted it at 2 with a power-play goal, setting up Visnovskys clutch finish.New York fired 41 shots at backup goalie Scott Darling, a total that couldnt have been predicted when the Islanders recorded only eight in the first period.We were just trying to shoot the puck and go to the net, Okposo said. When we do that, were a pretty good team.After Kane put the Blackhawks ahead 3:46 into the third with an end-to-end rush with a backhanded finish, Okposo tied it off a rebound of Tavares shot with 9:50 left.Visnovsky then skated across the Chicago zone and beat Darling to put New York in front at 11:01.We had some breakdowns and I couldnt come through, said Darling, 5-2 in seven career NHL games. They ended up being the difference in the game.Jaroslav Halak got back on his game and made 23 saves. He had lost two straight after winning a club-record 11. New York allowed 17 goals during its three-game skid.Darling, subbing again for injured Corey Crawford, had won four straight — all on the road — and three times in six days. He stopped 38 shots.Just when it seemed both teams might be shut down, the Blackhawks went in front on their second shot of the second but found themselves back in a tie seconds later.Carcillo started it with a shot from the slot that Halak blocked, but the puck popped into the air and landed behind the goalie with 5:35 left. It was Carcillos fourth goal.Before that could be announced to the crowd, which had a fair share of Blackhawks fans scattered around it, a Chicago blunder got the Islanders on the board. On the faceoff following the goal, defenceman Duncan Keith got the puck in his end, but lost it to Clutterbuck, who came in alone and scored his fourth.This was a wakeup call for sure, Kane said of the Blackhawks, who host Calgary on Sunday. We allowed too many chances. We will come back strong (Sunday). Our goalie was great and gave us every chance.The Blackhawks had the better of the play in the scoreless first, but despite spending countless shifts in the New York end, the Blackhawks couldnt take advantage.Even their shot count was kept down, and they took a 10-8 edge into the dressing room. Both teams had one fruitless power play in the frame and one stymied breakaway.Brandon Saad was denied by Halak with 8:15 left after he took the puck away from former teammate Nick Leddy, and Okposo was turned aside by Darling with 5:53 remaining.New York turned the tide in the second period and had a 17-7 shots advantage.Scotty kept us in, Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews said. We didnt make them do things they didnt want to do.Thats a good team. They definitely outworked us.NOTES: Crawford (lower body) missed his fifth game. ...

Samir Nasris 88th-minute equalizer at Etihad Stadium will be of little consolation to City, which is now six points behind league leader Liverpool and four points behind second-place Chelsea. Third-place City has a game in hand but the surprise result against Sunderland, coupled with Sundays 3-2 loss at Liverpool, may be a setback too far in its bid for a second championship in three seasons.CLEVELAND - Cavaliers general manager David Griffin said David Blatt will remain the teams head coach and that no change will be made.Griffin, speaking to reporters before Sundays game against Dallas, called scrutiny about Blatts job status ridiculous and said he isnt giving the rookie head coach a vote of confidence because he never needed one.Griffin also took issue with reports that LeBron James, who is sidelined with knee and back soreness, is unhappy with Blatt and said the narrative about the coachs job is over.Its a non-story, Griffin said. Coach Blatt is our coach. Hes going to remain our coach.Griffin disagreed with the idea that James isnt supporting Blatt, talk that began in earnest last week. When the four-time MVP was asked if Blatt was the right coach for the team, he said. Yeah, hes our coach, I mean, what other coach do we have? Pressed about endorsing Blatt, James said, Listen man, I dont pay no bills around here. I play.Griffin pointed out that James made positive comments about Blatt during that media session .I heard the entire audio file of LeBron James comments, Griffin said. No more than three different times he said, we are growing together every day, the team grows together every day and I am happy with who we have at the helm, But that wasnt a sexy pull quote so we kkept looking for something else until we could pull something that sounded negative, Griffin said.dddddddddddd That narrative is done. No change is being made, period.The Cavaliers, considered one of the favourites to win the NBA title when the season began after James returned to Cleveland and the team traded for All-Star forward Kevin Love, are 19-14 and sit in fifth place in the Eastern Conference.Griffin said he knew going into the season that the Cavaliers would be under intense scrutiny and added, Were like travelling with the Beatles.Griffin hopes James, who is scheduled to be examined again by team doctors Wednesday, will return during the teams upcoming West Coast road trip.If it was up to him hed play tomorrow, Griffin said. The guys a warrior.Blatt said James did not attend Sundays game and will not make the trip to Philadelphia for Monday nights game on advice from the teams medical staff.Injuries have been a factor for the Cavaliers. James missed his fifth game Sunday and centre Anderson Varejao is out for the season with a torn Achilles tendon. Kyrie Irving wont make the trip to Philadelphia for Monday nights game because of lower back tightness that forced him out of the game Sunday.Love, Shawn Marion and Matthew Dellavedova have also missed time with injuries.
