EDMONTON -- Head coach Dallas Eakins needed to chew the Edmonton Oilers out after a painful first 40 minutes, and the tongue-lashing seemed to spur them on. Taylor Hall scored the overtime winner as the Oilers rebounded from a listless start to earn a 3-2 come-from-behind victory over the New York Islanders after trailing 2-0 after the second period on Thursday night. Oiler Sam Gagner stole the puck in the neutral zone and danced around defender Brian Strait before sending it on net, where Hall was able to slip it past goalie Evgeni Nabokov 2:29 into the overtime session. "I had a very one-sided conversation with them," Eakins said of the second period intermission. "Id rather we didnt wait until the last four minutes of the second period to get going. We have been preaching the way to play and it wasnt until near the end of the second that we understood what we needed to do and we carried it on to the third." Gagner agreed that the teams needed a kick in the behind after their sorry start. "We werent happy with the way we played the first two periods and we talked a lot about it in between the second and the third," he said. "We started doing the things that make you successful in the third. We were getting pucks deep and forechecking and it was a big reason we were able to come away with the win." Ryan Smyth and Philip Larsen also scored for the Oilers (22-34-8), who have won two games in a row and are 7-2-2 in their last 11 games. Frans Nielsen and Anders Lee responded for the Islanders (24-32-9), who have lost 10 of their last 13 games. The Islanders have also lost 10 games this season in which they led heading into the third period. "I wish I had an answer for that," said New York forward Michael Grabner. "We have to try and bare down. We had some chances on some two-on-ones that we didnt take advantage of. We have to try and make it 3-0, and 4-0 and not just sit back. "Its been happening too much lately." Islanders coach Jack Capuano said his team simply cant afford to let up late in a game. "We made mistakes, we talk about this all the time," he said. "You have to teach and you have to learn from it. At some point, theyre going to have to realize those little things, the moment you stop moving your feet or get out of position its going to cost you." New York started the scoring with a short-handed marker midway through the first period. Gagner coughed up the puck in the Islanders zone, allowing a two-on-one that saw Nielsen elect to shoot the puck himself, beating Oilers starting goalie Ben Scrivens top corner for his 19th goal of the season. It was the 11th short-handed goal Edmonton has allowed this season. New York made it 2-0 with a minute-and-a-half left in the opening frame as Lee was able to tip a Strait shot through Scrivens legs. It was the Islanders rookies fourth goal in just his five career NHL games. The Islanders outshot Edmonton 13-4 in the first period. Edmonton continued to have trouble getting quality scoring chances on Nabokov in the scoreless second period. The Oilers had some shots late in the second to make the totals look better, but the shots still favoured New York 23-14 after 40 minutes. Edmonton managed to avoid being shutout for the ninth time this season on a memorable power-play goal by Smyth. Jordan Eberle made a nice feed to a hard-charging Smyth and he shovelled the puck past Nabokov. With the goal, he tied Glenn Anderson for the most power-play goals in Oilers franchise history with 126, one up on Wayne Gretzky who was at the game in advance of a team-sponsored breakfast on Friday morning. "Its an honour even to be mentioned with guys like Gretzky and Anderson," Smyth said. "I played a lot longer than those guys, but they set the bar high and you want to try and match it. The way it all worked out, it was an emotional ride not knowing if I was staying or going at the trade deadline. To be here and to tie this record is awesome." Edmonton continued to buzz and managed to tie the game with just 3:07 left as Larsen picked the puck off the boards and went hard to the net before shooting the puck off the side of the post and in for his second of the season. Larsen has been battling dizzy spells since December and had only played in one of Edmontons previous 26 games. Scrivens made a huge breakaway save on Grabner to send the game to extra time. The Islanders get back to action right away, playing the third of a four-game road trip in Calgary on Friday. The Oilers are off until Sunday, when they conclude a five-game homestand against the Los Angeles Kings. Notes: It was the second and final meeting of the season between the two teams. The Oilers lost a 3-2 decision in New York in their first match-up back on Oct. 17, however the Islanders have lost three straight in Edmonton, where they have not won since March of 2003a Both teams were looking a little different after Wednesdays trade deadline as the Oilers dealt long-serving forward Ales Hemsky and defenceman Nick Schultz, while the Islanders traded away forward Tomas Vanek after less than a year on Long Island. Neither team got roster players back in returna With Schultz dealt to Columbus and Corey Potter picked up on waivers by Boston, defenceman Philip Larsen was called back up after being placed on the waiver wire a day earliera Recently-acquired goalie Viktor Fasht arrived in Edmonton after being traded to the Oilers from Anaheim on Tuesday, but served as the backup to Scrivensa With Vanek traded and John Tavares (knee) sidelined for the season, the Islanders are now without two of their top three scorers this season. Also out for the game was forward Eric Boulton, who exited New Yorks last game with a hand injurya Oilers defenceman Jeff Petry left the game after the first period with a back problem.

Roesers immediate departure was announced Tuesday by the NBA. The league announced plans last week to appoint a CEO to oversee the franchise in Sterlings absence. "This will provide an opportunity for a new CEO to begin on a clean slate and for the team to stabilize under difficult circumstances," NBA spokesman Mike Bass said. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling for life, fined him $2.5 million and urged owners to force him to sell the Clippers a week ago, responding to league-wide outrage over racist comments made by the 80-year-old real-estate mogul. Sterling is the NBAs longest-tenured owner after buying the Clippers in 1981. Roeser, one of the Clippers alternate governors, is one of the leagues longest-tenured executives, having just completed his 30th season with the team. Roeser has been a loyal frontman for Sterling since the franchises days in San Diego, and he stood by Sterling during every controversial stretch of the owners career. Only radio and television play-by-play announcer Ralph Lawler has worked for the Clippers longer than the 54-year-old Roeser, who became team president in 2007. But Roeser infuriated many longtime Clippers employees last week after Sterlings private conversation was made public by TMZ. While nearly everyone else was reacting with outrage, Roeser released a statement questioning whether the recordings of Sterling were legitimate, while simultaneously apologizing on Sterlings behalf for sentiments about Magic Johnson on the recordings.ddddddddddddRoesers statement was sympathetic to Sterling and criticized V. Stiviano, Sterlings longtime associate and the other voice on the recordings. Clippers coach Doc Rivers said Roesers statement upset many loyal Clippers employees who had been horrified by Sterlings comments. Rivers held meetings with much of the Clippers front-office staff last week while Sterling was ousted, encouraging them to keep working for the franchise. Roeser joined the organization in 1984 from an accounting firm. Two years later, he became executive vice-president, overseeing all facets of the teams business operations. He has been president of the Los Angeles Clippers Foundation since it began in 1994. He helped bring Rivers to Los Angeles from the Boston Celtics last June, and was part of the acquisition of All-Star guard Chris Paul in 2011. Roeser also oversaw the development and construction of the teams training facility that opened in 2008. Rivers is the Clippers senior vice-president of basketball operations, working alongside executive vice-president of player personnel Gary Sacks on the basketball side of the teams operations. The Clippers overcame the distraction of Sterlings banishment to outlast Golden State in a seven-game first-round series on Saturday night. After just one day off, they returned to the court and trounced Oklahoma City 122-105 on the road Monday night in the opener of their Western Conference semifinal series.
