UNIONDALE, N.Y. — New York Islanders captain John Tavares scored a hat trick and added an assist to help propel his team to a 7-3 victory over the Dallas Stars on Monday night.


In addition to a strong performance from their captain, highly touted rookie center Ryan Strome scored the first goal of his NHL career.


With the Islanders on the power play early in the second period trailing 2-0, Strome got his squad on the board by putting a wrist shot past Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen — one of four Islanders goals in the period. That goal opened the floodgates for the Islanders, who went on to score six goals over a 24:38 span.


Peter Regin, Brock Nelson, and Brian Strait also scored for New York.


Blue Jackets 4, Rangers 3, SO


NEW YORK — Sergei Bobrovsky made 40 saves through overtime and two more in the shootout in his first action in over a month, and Brandon Dubinsky had a goal and assist against his former team in the Columbus Blue Jackets’ victory.


Bobrovsky stopped Mats Zuccarello and Rick Nash in the tiebreaker, and Mark Letestu and Ryan Johansen scored against Henrik Lundqvist to win it.


Nash had tied it with his second power-play goal of the night, and ninth tally this season, at 6:55 of the third period as David Savard served a penalty for delay of game.


Defenseman James Wisniewski also had a goal and assist, and Cam Atkinson scored on a second-period breakaway to help the Blue Jackets win for the second time in five games.


Brian Boyle cut the deficit to 3-2 at 4:53 of the third, and Lundqvist made 36 saves through overtime for New York, which had won three of four on the road before returning home.
