The Chicago Blackhawks move to 17-8-4 on the year after defeating the New York Islanders in overtime, 3-2.

The Chicago Blackhawks got a 2-0 lead on Thursday against the New York Islanders that they ended up blowing, but the offense came through in overtime with the game-winning goal in a 3-2 victory. Chicago led 2-0 just a few minutes into the second period but gave up one goal apiece in the second and third periods to tie the game up, pushing the game into overtime.

It didn't take long for the Blackhawks to come to life once the puck was dropped in OT, though, as Patrick Sharp scored the game-ending goal just one minute and 34 seconds into the period. Assisted by Marian Hossa on the play, it was Sharp's second goal of the game and his 15th of the season. It was an active game for those two, as Sharp finished with two goals and an assist while Hossa finished with a goal and two assists. 

New York clearly had the advantage for most the second period and the third period, though. The Islanders' goals were scored by Travis Hamonic and Steve Stalos, with each scoring their first goal of the season. They drop to 9-11-6 on the year, last place in the Atlantic Division. Chicago moves to 17-8-4 on the year, currently first in the Central Division.
