NEW YORK — John Tavares kept up his scoring surge with two more goals and the Islanders handed the expansion Golden Knights their second loss of the season, 6-3 on Monday night. Andrew Ladd, Mathew Barzal, Cal Clutterbuck and Nikolay Kulemin also scored, and Jaroslav Halak stopped 31 shots to help New York win for the fifth time in six games. Tavares has eight goals in the last four games. William Karlsson, Alex Tuch and Colin Miller scored for Vegas, which snapped a five-game winning streak and lost another goalie to an injury. With starter Marc-Andre Fleury and backup Malcolm Subban already sidelined, Oscar Dansk left after Tavares scored the tying goal late in the second period with an apparent leg injury. Dansk, who came in 3-0 with an NHL-best 1.34 goals-against average, made 17 saves. Maxime Lagace, the fourth goalie Vegas has used in its inaugural season, came on for his NHL debut and gave up four goals on 11 shots. Vegas led 2-1 after one period and the teams played more deliberate hockey for the first 10 minutes of the second. Dansk made two nice stops on Tavares in close with about eight minutes to go. However, Tavares tied the score with his 10th goal with 5:10 left, deflecting a shot by Nick Leddy past Dansk, who was injured on the play. The Golden Knights challenged for goalie interference, but the goal stood after a review. With Reilly Smith off for high-sticking, Barzal gave the Islanders their first lead as he knocked in a rebound. Clutterbuck extended the lead to 4-2 at 4:44 of the third as he skated up the right side and fired the puck past Lagace's glove. Kulemin made it a three-goal lead at 8:26 of the third.COYOTES AVOID INFAMY, BARELY: The visiting Coyotes finally got their first win of the season, beating the Flyers 4-3 on Alex Goligoski's overtime goal after blowing a two-goal lead in the final minute of regulation.
