Recap


Defenseman Mark Eaton scored 2:35 into overtime as the New York Islanders skated to a 2-1 road triumph over the reeling Ottawa Senators on Friday.
 
Matt Martin scored his sixth goal of the season and Evgeni Nabokov finished with 23 saves for New York, which improved to 5-1-1 in its last seven games.
 
Playing in his 600th NHL game, Eaton collected fellow blue-liner Milan Jurcina's feed and backhanded the puck past Craig Anderson. The tally was Eaton's first since the 2009-10 campaign when he played with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
 
Martin spoiled Anderson's bid for his second shutout of the season and 18th career at the 5:27 mark of the third period. Martin accepted a feed from P.A. Parenteau and beat the netminder blocker side to level the contest at 1-1.
 
Zack Smith netted a shorthanded goal with 13 seconds left in the second period for Ottawa, which has dropped five in a row (0-4-1) after a blistering 13-2-2 stretch.
 
Smith finished an end-to-end rush by wiring a wrist shot off Nabokov's glove and into the net for his 13th goal of the season and first since Jan. 5.
