UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Matt Moulson had a goal and two assists, and John Tavares and P.A. Parenteau both added one of each for the New York Islanders, who took advantage of the Edmonton Oilers and shaky goalie Devan Dubnyk in a 4-1 matinee victory Saturday.

Tavares and Moulson helped set up each other for goals in the first period, and Parenteau and Matt Martin connected in the second for the Islanders, who won their second straight against visiting teams from Alberta following a three-game losing streak.

Evgeni Nabokov made 28 saves for the Islanders, 5-2-4 against Western Conference opponents.

New York scored on four of its first nine shots at Dubnyk, more than enough offense to knock off the sliding Oilers, who are 0-3 on their seven-game road trip forced by the world junior hockey championship being played in Edmonton.
