UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -- Matt Martin scored his second game-winning goal in his three-year NHL career, and the New York Islanders shook off a slow start and routed the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-1 on Tuesday night.
John Tavares, Milan Jurcina, David Ullstrom and Matt Moulson -- the NHL's first star of last week -- also scored for New York. Ullstrom's goal was his first in the NHL. Al Montoya made 23 saves.
The Islanders are 4-1-2 in their past seven games.
Martin St. Louis gave Tampa Bay a 1-0 lead, but the Islanders led 3-1 before the first period ended. Mathieu Garon stopped 29 saves.
Tampa Bay, which has lost five in a row, leads the Islanders by only one point for 13th place in the Eastern Conference.
