Mike Comrie scored with 9.6 seconds left in overtime, Wade Dubielewicz made 22 saves in relief of injured Rick DiPietro and the New York Islanders beat the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs, 4-3, last night.
Comrie, who also scored in New York's three-goal first period, got to a rebound of Richard Park's shot and put it past Toronto backup goalie Andrew Raycroft shortly after a Maple Leafs power play expired.
Andy Hilbert and Bill Guerin also scored in an unusually productive first period for the Islanders to stake DiPietro to a lead. But he didn't come out after intermission because of a knee injury sustained in pregame warmups.
Dubielewicz had a much better showing than his previous appearance against Toronto, an 8-1 loss on Oct. 11. New York has won three straight, including consecutive home victories in overtime.
Alex Steen and Mark Bell scored in the first period for Toronto, and Steen tied it at 3-3 in the third period.
