NEW YORK (AP) - Cal Clutterbuck and Andrew Ladd scored 1:39 apart midway through the third period to lift the New York Islanders over Vancouver 4-2 on Monday night, giving the Canucks their ninth straight loss.

Jason Chimera and Nikolay Kulemin also scored and Jaroslav Halak stopped 30 shots for the Islanders, who won for just the second time in seven games (2-3-2).

Daniel Sedin scored and Ryan Miller had 28 saves for Vancouver, which fell to 0-8-1 with eight straight regulation losses since opening the season with four wins.

Clutterbuck backhanded the rebound of a shot by Johnny Boychuk past Miller’s blocker side at 9:11 of the final period to give the Islanders a 3-2 lead. It was Clutterbuck’s second of the season and first since the season-opener.

Ladd, the Islanders’ big free agent signing last summer, got his first goal of the season with 9:10 remaining, firing a one-timer off a pass Nick Leddy.
