UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- One night after Columbus had its home opener spoiled, the Blue Jackets wrecked the New York Islanders first night in front of their fans. The Islanders came in with momentum Saturday after opening their season one night earlier with a shootout win at New Jersey. With a two-goal lead in the third period, New York seemed poised for a 2-0 start as the club seeks to return to the playoffs for the second straight season. Not so fast. Mark Letestu and Nick Foligno netted goals 4:19 apart in the third period to erase Columbus deficit, and Cam Atkinson scored in the fourth round of a shootout to lift the Blue Jackets to a 3-2 victory. Sergei Bobrovsky made 28 saves through overtime and then stopped three of four shootout attempts. "We pull for each other," Foligno said. "We played hard, the way we expect to play every night. We were rewarded for it. "We kept pressing and wound up with a great result." Columbus doesnt know much about blown third-period leads as the Blue Jackets have won 27 straight since January 2012 when leading after two -- including a 13-0 mark last season. "The team was working really well together," said Bobrovsky, who sported a blue velvet and gold crown in the winning dressing room. "We have to be together to win. Tonight we did a great job of that. The hard work paid off." The Islanders and goalie Evgeni Nabokov seemed to be in complete control before Letestu and Foligno struck. The Blue Jackets managed only 12 shots in the first two periods before turning it on in the third. "Tonight was a full team effort, and we got the job done," Atkinson said. "Now we have to keep it going. We played Blue Jackets hockey." New York built its lead in the second on a power-play goal by defenceman Lubomir Visnovsky and an even-strength tally by Matt Moulson. Visnovsky added an assist, and captain John Tavares had two for the Islanders. New York, which won its season opener on Friday with a shootout win at New Jersey, got one goal in four rounds of this tiebreaker against Bobrovsky -- by Moulson, who was the only scorer one night earlier. "We got three out of four points, but we have to be doing whatever it takes," Islanders coach Jack Capuano said. "Keep showing a willingness to compete. For the most part we did, but the guys have to learn that you have to play hard every shift." Letestu also scored in the shootout, setting the stage for Atkinsons winner. Both teams had chances to win in a wild overtime. Kyle Okposo fired two hard drives during New Yorks power play. Columbus nearly caught the Islanders pinned up ice when Jack Johnson almost had a breakaway as he left the penalty box, however the lead pass was too far in front, and Nabokov knocked it away. R.J. Umberger then led a Blue Jackets 3-on-1 rush, yet his shot was also stopped by Nabokov. "Nabby did a really good job for us," Capuano said. "He made a lot of key second and third saves." Columbus, which lost its season opener at home on Friday to Calgary, had a 5-4 shots advantage in overtime. New York held a 30-29 edge overall. Letestu started the rally with a power-play goal at 7:45, Columbus first advantage of the night, and Foligno tied it from in close with 8:06 left in regulation. Nabokov wasnt overly busy early, but looked sharp in keeping the Blue Jackets at bay until the third-period surge. The 38-year-old goalie earned the win on Friday. "This league is so evenly matched up," Nabokov said. "Its not much difference between winning and losing." The Islanders broke out in the second period, scoring twice including a power-play goal that ended the scoreless deadlock. New York put pressure on Bobrovsky and nearly scored when Josh Bailey fired a drive that Bobrovsky barely knocked away with his glove. In the ensuing scrum, Artem Anisimov was whistled for hooking, giving the Islanders the first man-advantage of the game. On the power play, Tavares moved the puck from the right circle up to Visnovsky, who was in the middle of the ice just inside the blue line. Visnovsky sent a pass left to Frans Nielsen, who quickly pushed the puck back to the defenceman for a shot that sailed through traffic and past Bobrovsky at 8:17. The Islanders needed only 5:44 more to double their lead, this time with Tavares and Visnovsky assisting on Moulsons first traditional goal of the young season. Tavares, the Islanders new captain, did hard work along the right-wing boards to dig out the puck. He quickly sent a quick pass down to the crease, where Moulson skated into the puck and jammed it past Bobrovsky. There were few prime scoring chances in the goal-less and penalty-free first period in which the Islanders held a 9-4 edge in shots. NOTES: This was the first meeting between the teams since Columbus joined the Eastern Conference and became division rivals with New York in the newly formed Metropolitan Division. ...

Kyle Korver scored 12 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter to help Atlanta beat the Milwaukee Bucks 102-97 Thursday night for the Hawks first back-to-back victories in nearly six weeks. The Hawks (28-35) expanded their lead over the surging Knicks (26-40) for the No. 8 and final playoff spot in the East to 3 1/2 games. Their victory over the team with the worst record in the NBA followed Mondays 104-102 victory over Utah, the team with the worst record in the Western Conference. Like the Bucks (13-52), the Hawks entered the game having lost 14 of 16, and their first home game after a six-game road trip had an odd feel. "The last two havent been pretty, but theyre wins and its two in a row so were going to try to build on that," said Korver, who was 4 for 4 from the foul line and 3 for 4 from the field in the final period, including 2 for 3 on 3-pointers. "The first game back after a (long) road trip is notoriously a trap game, and I think we fell for it a bit in the first half and didnt come out with the right energy and focus, at least I didnt." Korvers backcourt mate, Jeff Teague, scored 22 points with eight in a final period that saw 12 lead changes and four ties. The Hawks took the lead for good when Korvers 3-pointer gave them a 90-89 edge with 2:15 left. That came moments after Korver missed from long distance, and reserve centre Elton Brand grabbed the rebound and fired it back to the sharpshooter. That play more than any ruined the Atlanta homecoming of Bucks coach Larry Drew, who was the Hawks head coach from 2010-13. He was not asked to return for the final season of his contract, although Atlanta never officially fired him. "If we come up with that rebound were not in that position," Drew said. "You cant leave a guy like that that open. Or even put him in that position, because Kyle is, if not the best shooter, hes one of the top three in our league." Korvers 3 triggered a 9-0 run that waas punctuated by Teagues thunderous dunk with 27 second remaining for a 96-89 lead.dddddddddddd Ersan Ilyasova had 22 points and 10 rebounds for Milwaukee, and guard Brandon Knight added 20 points. Every Atlanta starter, even centre Pero Antic, made at least one 3-pointer. The Hawks were 13 for 29 from beyond the arc. Milwaukee had just eight turnovers and a modest 43-41 rebounding edge, but went 3 for 19 on 3-point attempts. Trailing 53-47 at halftime, the Hawks took a 68-67 lead by closing the third quarter with a 9-0 run during which they made four straight shots. Milwaukee shot 4 for 21 in the period, and scored one point over the final 4:08 of a 14-point quarter. "Our defence picked us up and allowed us to get back in the game," Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer said. "We keep talking about being better defensively, and at some point weve got to carry it over to the court." Both teams found energy in the final quarter, when the Hawks outscored the Bucks 34-30. Teague, who pitched in eight assists but also committed seven turnovers, was happy with the win because, he said, "Nobody is bad in the NBA. On any given night, anybody can beat anybody." Budenholzer was more mindful of Atlantas opponent. He did not consider his team to be back on track. "No; not really. I think were going to have to play a whole lot better than this going forward," Budenholzer said. "Wins are important ... but I dont think anybody thinks were settled." NOTES: Hawks centre Al Horford, who has been out since tearing his right pectoral muscle Dec. 26 in an overtime win at Cleveland, said he will not return to play this seven even if Atlanta makes the playoffs. He returned after suffering a similar injury to his left pectoral in 2011-12. "No. I think it would be hard. This injury, honestly, was a little more severe than the other one," he explained in his first meeting with reporters since the injury. "And its my right side, shooting arm, and I need to feel 100 per cent confident with it, so I think its going to be a little bit slower."
