UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Sergei Gonchar scored with 1 minute left for the Ottawa Senators, who netted four goals in the third period and rallied to beat the New York Islanders 5-3 on Tuesday night.

Gonchar's second goal of the season came on a blast from the point to make it 4-3, and Guillaume Latendresse added an empty-net goal to seal the win. Jakob Silfverberg and Zack Smith scored in a 68-second span early in the third period to tie the game after the Islanders led 3-1.

Ottawa has won three straight.

New York's Josh Bailey had scored the go-ahead goal 14 seconds into the second period, and Lubomir Visnovsky extended the Islanders' lead to two goals.

Keith Aucoin appeared to give the Islanders a 4-3 lead at 7:22, but the goal was disallowed because he kicked the puck past goalie Ben Bishop.
