Danny Briere scored his second goal of the game with 2:26 remaining in overtime, giving the Philadelphia Flyers a 4-3 come-from-behind victory over the New York Islanders on Wednesday night.
Andrej Meszaros and Scott Hartnell also scored for Philadelphia, which snapped a two-game skid and handed the islanders their eighth loss in ten games.
Kyle Okposo scored his first two goals of the season and Michael Grabner scored for New York.
The Islanders entered the game having been outscored 20-13 in the first period. At the first intermission, though, it was the Islanders who held a 3-1 advantage thanks to Okposo's two goals and Grabner's first goal since November 10.

Danny Briere scored his second goal of the game with 2:26 remaining in overtime, giving the Philadelphia Flyers a 4-3, come-from-behind victory over the New York Islanders on Wednesday night.
