UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Ryan Getzlaf scored three goals and the Anaheim Ducks rallied for their eighth straight win, beating the New York Islanders 5-3 Saturday night.

Down 3-1, the Ducks scored four times in the third period. The Islanders played a spirited first two periods, taking their lead on two goals by Thomas Vanek and another by Frans Nielsen.

But Getzlaf scored his second of the game at 1:10 of the final period and Mathieu Perreault tied it at 10:32.

Kyle Palmieri, a native of Montvale, N.J., who scored the overtime winner Friday night against the New Jersey Devils, found himself in front of Evengi Nabokov with a clear shot at 13:44. The 22-year-old forward, who also scored the winning goal when the Ducks beat the Rangers 2-1 at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 4, knocked in his sixth goal of the season.
