    Ryan Strome had a goal and two assists, and the New York Islanders rallied with four straight goals to beat the Dallas Stars 5-4 on Thursday night.

    Stars captain Jamie Benn scored on the power play in the first period and short-handed in the third. Radek Faksa and Jason Spezza had second-period goals that gave Dallas a 3-1 lead.

    Thomas Greiss made 22 saves for New York, while Antti Niemi stopped 28 shots for Dallas.
