Gaborik, Biron lift Rangers to 3rd straight win

Brandon Dubinsky scored his first goal in more than a month, Marian Gaborik moved into a tie for the NHL lead with his 20th, and Martin Biron was solid in net to lead the New York Rangers to a 4-2 victory over the New York Islanders on Thursday night.

Dubinsky staked the Rangers to a 1-0 lead in the first period, and Gaborik and Michael Del Zotto connected in the second for New York, which has won three straight.

Biron stopped 24 shots and earned an assist on Dubinsky's second goal of the season. John Mitchell scored an empty-net goal with 1:33 remaining to seal it.

P.A. Parenteau got the Islanders even at 1 with a power-play goal just 18 seconds into the second period, and Matt Moulson added a man-advantage goal 8:29 into the third.
