UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Once the New York Islanders finally figured out 20-year-old goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy, doing it again proved to be simple.John Tavares and Anders Lee scored 12 seconds apart in the third period, after the Islanders had been stymied by Vasilevskiy, and New York stunned the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-1 with a late comeback Saturday night.Shut down for nearly 57 minutes by Vasilevskiy, a 2012 first-round draft pick who played in his second NHL game, the Islanders stormed back after falling behind 1-0 on Brett Connollys goal 9:16 into the third.Tavares tied it with 3:09 remaining, scoring from the slot while being knocked to the ice, and Lee put New York in front when he deflected in Travis Hamonics shot.Emotion took over, Lee said of his seventh goal. We felt if we could get one past him, we could get two.With No. 1 goalie Ben Bishop out for the third straight game, Vasilevskiy earned the start over former Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov and stopped 45 shots. Vasilevskiy beat Philadelphia in his debut on Tuesday.I dont know who the three stars were, but our goalie deserved all three, Lightning coach Jon Cooper said.Nikolay Kulemin sealed it with 1:11 left on an empty-net goal, seconds after Tavares left when he was struck in the head by a puck. Tavares received stitches, but Islanders coach Jack Capuano said the captain was fine.Jaroslav Halak made 20 saves for the win.This is how you have to play to win in this league, Islanders forward Kyle Okposo said. We have a pretty good squad, and were going to keep working.The Islanders (23-10) remained two points behind Eastern Conference-leading Pittsburgh.I think all night we had pep in our step, Okposo said. You look at our record, were doing good things. Youre seeing the results.Tampa Bay is another two points behind, but the Lightning are tied with Montreal atop the Atlantic Division.Connolly gave the Lightning the lead when he deflected in Tyler Johnsons shot on Tampa Bays 18th shot.Tampa Bay, which lost a shootout at New Jersey on Friday, is 2-5-1 in its past eight games. New York also played for the second straight night, following a 2-1 win at Detroit, and extended its winning streak to four.The first period provided little action until the closing seconds when the Islanders generated pressure during their first power play. Vasilevskiy stopped all 12 shots he faced in the frame.Halak had much less to deal with, facing only five shots, but he withstood a scare 4:20 in when the Lightning appeared to take a 1-0 lead. During a scrum in front, Brian Boyle kicked the puck in and was awarded a goal on the ice. But a video review clearly showed the puck being sent in by a skate, and the call was overturned.Our goalie was great. Kept us going all night. Played a tremendous game, Boyle said. Connolly gave us a lead but it wasnt enough.The Islanders dominated the middle period but had nothing to show for it because of the strong play of Vasilevskiy, who made 17 saves. Halak again was barely tested as the Lightning — the NHLs top-scoring team — generated only four shots, nine total through 40 minutes.We had a one-goal lead with 5 minutes to go, Cooper said. Ultimately our goalie gave us a chance to win but we scored one goal, and it clearly wasnt enough.Not only couldnt the Lightning sustain any offensive pressure, they struggled just getting the puck out of their own zone as the Islanders were aggressively forechecking throughout and forced numerous turnovers near the blue line.We were outplayed for the most part, Lightning defenceman Anton Stralman said. Losing it is obviously tough.(Vasilevskiy) kept us in there all game, really gave us a chance. We came close.NOTES: Lightning RW Ryan Callahan played in his 500th NHL game. ...

The team announced earlier Thursday Rinne would miss at least the next three games and then the All-Star weekend.Its a setback, but well get over it as a team, coach Peter Laviolette said. Hell get over it as a person, and hell jump back in there.Rinne now is expected to miss a minimum of 10 games and possibly up to 18 if out the full five weeks with the Predators currently sitting atop the Central Division. They also topped the NHL standings (29-9-4) in winning points percentage before Thursday nights games, though tied with Anaheim with 62 points.We just need to keep doing the same things were doing, captain Shea Weber said. I think were playing good hockey. Weve scored enough goals and keeping the goals-against down, so thats obviously winning hockey.Rinne was hurt on Tuesday when Vancouver forward Chris Higgins became entangled with Nashville defenceman Anton Volchenkov in the third period. They then collided with Rinne, with their momentum carrying him into the end boards where his skates appeared to make first contact.The goalie leads the NHL with 29 wins — five more than Anaheims Frederik Andersen. Rinne also ranks second in the league with a 1.96 goals against average and a .931 save percentage, a season that earned Rinne his first All-Star appearance.Backup Carter Hutton has played in only six games this season and is 0-3-2. Hutton went 20-11-4 last season when Rinne missed 51 games because of an infection in his hip.ddddddddddddI expect Carter to come in here and play well for us, Laviolette said. I expect our guys to go out tomorrow night on the ice and play an aggressive game. But we got to go out and do that. Everybodys got to go out and do their job.The Predators signed Hutton to a two-year deal in the summer of 2013 to back up Rinne. With few back-to-backs to rest Rinne, Hutton has been getting most of his work in practice.Obviously it hurts losing Peks, but at the same time I think everyone in this room is confident in me, and Im confident in myself to get in there, Hutton said.Nashville also recalled Marek Mazanec (MAIR-ehk muh-ZAN-ehk) from the teams AHL affiliate in Milwaukee. Mazanec was their sixth-round draft pick in 2012, and he also helped fill in for Rinne last season. He played in 25 games and was the NHL rookie for November 2013 with a 5-4-1 record. He practiced with Nashville on Thursday.The Predators learned of Rinnes updated diagnosis after practice.Anytime you lose your best player its tough, forward Mike Fisher said. But I guess hell get a little break over the All-Star break to heal, so hopefully it wont be as long as theyre saying. But I know hes going to work hard. Hes been through the injury deal ..., and hell be working hard to get back and as a team were going to have to step it up and be better.Nashville currently is without defenceman Ryan Ellis and forward Eric Nystrom due to injuries. Forward James Neal just returned from injured reserve himself Tuesday night.The Predators already were facing an emotional game Friday night against the Washington Capitals and coach Barry Trotz, the only coach this former expansion franchise had until Nashville decided not to bring him back last April after missing the playoffs two straight seasons.
