TORONTO (AP) — Anthony Beauvillier scored his first goal in 11 games at 1:56 of overtime as the New York Islanders rallied in the third period and beat the Maple Leafs 3-2 on Monday night in a game in which Toronto lost top defenseman Morgan Rielly to injury.

Noah Dobson and Josh Bailey had the goals in regulation for New York, which got 30 stops from Ilya Sorokin.

“You just have to grind it out some nights,” New York forward Josh Baily said. “We just stuck with it and were fortunate to find a way to win and a big goal by (Beauvillier) in OT.”

John Tavares and Auston Matthews scored for Toronto. Erik Kallgren made 21 saves for the Leafs, who lost their fifth game of the season in OT. Mitch Marner had an assist to extend his point streak to 13 games.

“We played a good hockey game,” Maple Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe said. “We deserved better.”

Rielly was injured on an awkward collision with Islanders forward Kyle Palmieri early in the third and didn’t return.

Keefe said Reilly will get imaging done Tuesday to determine the extent of the injury. Toronto is already without Jake Muzzin (neck) and T.J. Brodie (oblique).

“It’s tough,” Keefe said of potentially losing Rielly. “We’re already missing guys and Morgan is so important to our team.”

Beauvillier scored his fourth goal of the season on a high shot off the rush after taking a drop pass from Brock Nelson in overtime.

Marner, who has three goals and 15 assists during his run also registered points in 13 straight contests last season. The winger is the fifth NHL player in the last 30 years with multiple point streaks of at least 13 games in a calendar year, joining Patrick Kane (2019), Leon Draisaitl (2019), Dave Andreychuk (1992) and Pierre Turgeon (1992).

Down 1-0 after the opening period, the Leafs got even at 4:49 of the second on a power play when Tavares fired his 11th goal of the season past Sorokin off a slick setup from Marner and William Nylander.

Toronto defenceman Morgan Rielly and New York forward Kyle Palmieri were involved in an accidental collision early in the third and didn’t return.

After Jarnkrok missed a great chance from the slot, Bailey buried his fourth to tie it at 2 with 2:58 left in regulation following a mixup in the defensive zone between Kallgren and Leafs blueliner Jordie Benn.

Toronto registered the game’s first seven shots and hit the crossbar in a dominant start. However, New York pushed back with the next five efforts on target before Dobson’s one-timer hit Leafs center David Kampf in front and caromed past Kallgren for the defenceman’s sixth goal of the season.

ROBERTSON WATCHES AGAIN

Toronto winger Nick Robertson was a healthy scratch for the fourth straight game. The 21-year-old scored twice in his season debut on Oct. 20 against Dallas — including the winner in overtime — after being sent to the AHL out of training camp because of salary cap concerns. He has just three assists in nine games since.

Robertson, who doesn’t have to clear waivers to be shipped to the minors, is averaging 11 minutes, 19 seconds of ice time when he’s been in the Leafs’ lineup this season.

“I’m not going to answer this question every single day,” head coach Sheldon Keefe said of the 2019 second-round pick’s status Monday. “There’s a lot of benefits to being in the NHL for a young player.”

CLUTTERBUCK A HIT

Islanders forward Cal Clutterbuck entered play with career 3,632 hits — just six back of former Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown for the NHL’s all-time record since the league started keeping track in 2005-06.

“Means that I played long enough to have a chance to do it more than anyone else,” said the 35-year-old Clutterbuck, who suited up for his 951st regular-season game.
