UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP)_ Vincent Damphousse scored his second goal of the game with 5.1 seconds left in regulation to give San Jose Sharks a 2-2 tie Saturday with the New York Islanders.
Damphousse scored on a quick wrist shot that got by Chris Osgood. The Islanders had gone ahead with 59.5 seconds left in the game on Alexei Yashin’s goal, a stuff that beat Mikka Kiprusoff.
Kenny Jonsson had New York’s other goal, as the Islanders went into overtime for the third time in three home games this season.
Kiprusoff made 38 saves, Osgood 35.
San Jose opened the scoring with 84 seconds left in the opening period. On a rush, Damphousse picked up a loose puck in the right circle, waited for an Islander defenseman to block Osgood’s view and blasted a slap shot between the goalie’s pads. It was the first time this season the Islanders allowed the first goal.
Both goalies came up big in the scoreless second period. Kiprusoff snagged Shawn Bates’ backhander on a rush with 1:15 left, and Osgood made a sliding pad save on Patrik Sundstrom with two seconds left.
New York tied the game at 8:18 of the final period when Jonsson’s slap shot from outside the left circle fluttered past Kiprusoff’s right shoulder.
