PITTSBURGH (AP) - Matt Moulson scored a goal and assisted on another, Evgeni Nabokov stopped 37 shots and the New York Islanders dominated the listless Pittsburgh Penguins 4-1 on Tuesday night.

John Tavares scored for the second straight game for New York while Michael Grabner collected his fourth goal of the season and Casey Cizikas found the net for the first time in his career.

It was more than enough to send the Penguins to their third loss in four games. Pascal Dupuis scored with just over a minute remaining to avoid the shutout.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 13 shots before being pulled after the second period. The Penguins gave it away 11 times, with 2 of the turnovers leading to New York goals.

Pittsburgh has dominated the series over the past five seasons but dropped its third straight to the Islanders, its longest losing skid against New York since 2007.

    Just one season of hits in high school football may alter brain

    Even among high school football players who've never had a concussion, a small preliminary study suggests that changes can still occur to their brains within the course of a single season.
