Taylor Hall scored the overtime winner and the Edmonton Oilers rebounded from a listless start to earn a 3-2 come-from-behind victory over the New York Islanders on Thursday night.

The Oilers got the win after trailing 2-0 after the second period.

Sam Gagner stole a puck in the neutral zone and went around defender Brian Strait before sending it on net, where Hall was able to slip it past goalie Evgeni Nabokov 2:29 into overtime.

Ryan Smyth and Philip Larsen also scored for the Oilers, who have won two games in a row and are 7-2-2 in their past 11 games.

Frans Nielsen and Anders Lee scored for the Islanders, who have lost 10 of their past 13 games.

The Islanders have also lost 10 games this season in which they led heading into the third period.
