UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) _ Jason Wooley's power-play goal at 7:42 of the third period lifted the Buffalo Sabres to a 2-2 tie with the New York Islanders on Tuesday night.

Wooley cut in from the left point, took a cross-ice pass from Matthew Barnaby, and tipped the puck into the open left side of the net.

All four goals were scored on the power play, as referee Richard Trottier issued 16 power-play chances, nine to the Islanders.

Derek Plante also scored for the Sabres. Sergei Nemchinov and Zigmund Palffy scored for the Islanders, who took the season series from the Sabres (2-1-1).

Olympic star Dominik Hasek started his fifth straight game for the Sabres and stopped 20 shots. The Sabres are 8-1-7 in their last 16 games, losing only to the Islanders last Friday night in that period.

Tommy Salo made his 15th straight start for New York and stopped 30 shots. Salo preserved the tie for the Islanders with 30 seconds left in overtime when he snatched a point-blank shot by Barnaby on the right side.

Salo made a few Hasek-like saves early in the game. He did the splits to get his left pad on Derek Plante's one-timer from the right crease at 5:45. Then at 7:21, he made a low, diving glove save on Michael Grosek's hard shot from the top of the left circle.

Each team scored on its first power-play chance.

Nemchinov put New York up 1-0 at 9:59 on a wrist shot from the low crease that got over Hasek's blocker.

Audette tied the game at 13:22 when he grabbed a loose puck, skated into the left circle and fired a wrist shot that went off Salo's glove and the right post before settling in the net.

Palffy, who has a 10-game point scoring streak (9-6-15), put New York back on top six minutes into the second period when he flipped a shot past Hasek from the low slot for his league-leading 15th power-play goal.
