PITTSBURGH --  Josh Bailey's goal with 1:40 left capped the Islanders' furious third-period rally, and New York edged the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 on Friday night.

Bailey took a feed from Frans Nielsen in front of the net and beat goalie Jeff Zatkoff for his fourth goal of the season. The Islanders scored three times in the final 7:14 and erased deficits of 2-1 and 3-2.

Nielsen, Matt Moulson and Pierre-Marc Bouchard also scored for New York, and defenseman Radek Martinek had two assists in his season debut. Evgeni Nabokov stopped 39 shots.

Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby scored his eighth goal of the season and now has an NHL-high 18 points. Jussi Jokinen and Deryk Engelland also beat Nabokov but couldn't stop the Penguins from losing their second straight (see full recap).

Bobrovsky, Gaborik help Blue Jackets top Leafs
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Marian Gaborik scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period, and Sergei Bobrovsky made it stand up to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 5-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday night.

Bobrovsky, last season's Vezina Trophy winner as the NHL's top goalie, had 23 saves.

Brandon Dubinsky added a short-handed goal, Nick Foligno also scored, Ryan Johansen had an empty-netter, and rookie defenseman Ryan Murray notched his first career goal for the Blue Jackets, who have won three in a row since losing four straight. Dubinsky and Foligno each also had an assist.

Phil Kessel and Dave Bolland had goals for the Maple Leafs, who made only their fifth trip to Columbus in the Blue Jackets' 13 seasons.

It was the first time the Blue Jackets scored more than four goals in a game this season (see full recap).

Maroon, Getzlaf help Ducks top Senators
OTTAWA, Ontario -- Ryan Getzlaf scored the winner, Frederik Andersen made 26 saves and the Anaheim Ducks earned the first victory of their eight-game road trip, a 2-1 win over the Ottawa Senators on Friday night.

Patrick Maroon also scored for the Ducks on the third game of their trip.

Mika Zibanejad had the Senators' goal and Craig Anderson stopped 26 shots.

Anaheim was coming off a 4-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night and was clearly the better team, especially early.

The Senators' best period was the third, but Andersen stopped all 12 shots he faced.

Anderson made a couple of great saves late in the third to give the Senators a chance in the final minute with the extra man, but Ottawa couldn't crack Anaheim's defense.

Maroon opened the scoring at 7:35 of the first period when he took a pass from Corey Perry and beat Anderson with a wrist shot (see full recap).
