Posted at 9:04 PM, Nov 30, 2015

Cal Clutterbuck broke a tie 1:52 into the third period and the New York Islanders beat the Colorado Avalanche 5-3 on Monday night.

Kyle Okposo, Mikhail Grabovski, Casey Cizikas and Ryan Strome also scored and the Islanders won for the third time in four games. Thomas Greiss stopped 25 shots.

Jarome Iginla, Nick Holden and former Islander Blake Comeau each scored for Colorado, but the Avalanche fell for the fifth time in their last seven games.

Off a faceoff win, Clutterbuck redirected Thomas Hickey's point shot past goalie Semyon Varlamov's glove. The goal was Clutterbuck's sixth of the season and the first of two third-period goals from the Isles' fourth line.

With Varlamov at the bench, Holden cut the Islanders' lead to 4-3 with 3:34 left, but Strome scored an empty-net goal with 47.9 seconds left.
