ANAHEIM, Calif. — Ryan Getzlaf scored the go-ahead goal late in the third period, Bobby Ryan had two goals and the Anaheim Ducks beat the New York Islanders 4-2 Friday night to end a three-game skid.

Jonas Hiller stopped 19 shots to earn his 99th NHL career victory for the Ducks, who avoided their second four-game losing streak of the season.

The Islanders led 2-1 early in the third on a goal by Kyle Okposo only to have the Ducks score the game's final three goals and end New York's three-game winning streak in a matchup of two teams next-to-last in their respective divisions.

Evgeni Nabokov made 16 saves for the Islanders, leaving him two wins away from 300.
