Kyle Okposo and Josh Bailey scored earlier in the third as the Islanders scored all their goals in a 51/2-minute stretch after trailing 2-0 after two.

The Panthers remained tied with the Lightning for second in the Atlantic Division with 85 points, one behind Boston. Aleksander Barkov had a goal and an assist for Florida.

Islanders defenseman Calvin de Haan returned after missing four games with a lower-body injury.

Game highlights: Kris Versteeg and Milan Lucic scored 18 seconds apart in the first period as the visiting Kings routed the Blackhawks 5-0.

Around the league: The league will put cameras on the blue lines beginning in the playoffs to aid officials on offside calls. The decision was announced on the first day of general managers meetings in Boca Raton. Executive vice president of hockey operations Colin Campbell said the tweak should give officials another angle to review if an offside call is challenged after a goal. … The NFL Referees Association said it agrees with its NHL counterpart in objecting to the reduction of Dennis Wideman's suspension for knocking down a linesman. NFLRA executive director Jim Quirk said any time an athlete makes unnecessary physical contact with an official, "there needs to be swift and certain punishment." An independent arbitrator reduced Wideman's suspension from 20 games to 10 after ruling that the Flames defenseman did not intend to injure linesman Don Henderson in a Jan. 27 game.
