For the New York Islanders, getting their fourth win in five games was the most important thing in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the New York Rangers at Barclays Center. 

Getting that win against an archrival? That's just gravy. 

"It was a big win," said John Tavares, who scored the Islanders' fourth goal. "We overcame some a few things today. The penalty kill did a heck of a job and Jaro obviously. Nice for our power play to step up when we had one of our chances there and we just got contributions from everybody."

If John Tavares were shopping for himself, he'd be buying something Batman related. For Travis Hamonic, it'd be a fishing set, and for Anders Lee, it'd be Lego and Hot Wheels. 

But Tavares, Hamonic, Lee and the Islanders weren't at Toys R Us on Monday morning to satisfy the urges of their inner child, they were there to buy toys for kids in local hospitals during the holidays. When it was all said and done, the Islanders bought 565 toys for kids that they'll deliver on Dec. 21.

The Skinny: Detroit 4, Isles 3 (OT)

A statistical breakdown of the Islanders-Detroit game by statistician Eric Hornick

by Eric Hornick @ehornick / New York Islanders

Game 24
Detroit 4, Isles 3 (OT)
Danny Dekeyser scored 1:02 into overtime for his first career overtime goal as the Detroit Red Wings defeated the Isles 4-3 before a crowd of 13,789 at Barclays Center.

Johnny Boychuk and Josh Bailey had each scored tying goals in the third period to earn the Isles a point for a season-high fourth straight game (3-0-1). It was the first time in eight Islander overtime games this season that they had scored the final goal of regulation.

Mike Green scored twice for Detroit; his potential hat trick goal was reversed due to goalie interference. No defensemen in Red Wing history has ever scored two hat tricks in the same season (Green had one in October vs. Winnipeg) and there hasn't been an NHL defenseman with two hat tricks in the same season in over 30 years!
