NEWARK, N.J. — Anthony Beauvillier and Oliver Wahlstrom scored on the Islanders’ final two shootout attempts and New York won its ninth straight game, beating the New Jersey Devils 3-2.

The Devils thought they had won the game 27 seconds into overtime on a goal by P.K. Subban, but a lengthy review showed Jesper Bratt was offside.

Beauvillier beat Scott Wedgewood on the Islanders’ third attempt to extend the shootout and Wahlstrom extended New Jersey’s winless run at home to 0-10-1.

Kieffer Bellows and Brock Nelson scored in the first period for the Islanders. Rookie Ilya Sorokin made 29 saves, allowing only Nikita Gusev to score in the shootout.

Janne Kuokkanen and Yegor Sharangovich scored for New Jersey, while  Wedgewood made 32 saves.
