Blake Comeau scored his first NHL goal to give the visiting Islanders the lead midway through the third period, Trent Hunter added a goal 37 seconds later and New York beat the host Pittsburgh Penguins, 4-2.
Comeau, a rookie playing only his second game this season and the fifth of his career, took Andy Hilbert's pass in the left circle and beat goalie Dany Sabourin inside the far post to put the Islanders in the lead at 3-2.
It was also Comeau's first two-point game; he assisted on a goal by Hilbert in the second period after Jordan Staal had given Pittsburgh a 2-1 lead. Comeau, drafted in 2004, was recalled Monday after Chris Simon took his leave from the team, 2 days before being suspended for 30 games.
