BOSTON (AP) - John Tavares tipped in Matt Moulson's shot for the tiebreaking goal with 4:39 left, Evgeni Nabokov stopped 32 shots, and the New York Islanders snapped a five-game, road-losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Saturday.

Josh Bailey and Moulson also had goals for the Islanders, who won for the second time in six games. New York, 0-4-1 in its five previous road games, completed a 1-2-1 trip.

Tyler Seguin tied it for Boston with his 22nd goal early in the third period. Milan Lucic also scored his 22nd, converting on a first-period power play. The defending Stanley Cup champions have dropped five of eight.

Tim Thomas took the loss in relief of injured starter Tuukka Rask, who left with an undisclosed injury midway through the second period. Thomas stopped 11 of 13 shots after Rask gave up one goal on 12 shots.
