Nash, Khudobin help Bruins snap 4-game skid, beat Islanders

NEW YORK (AP) The Boston Bruins badly needed a win and the scoring support came from unexpected source in Riley Nash.

Nash scored twice and backup goalie Anton Khudobin made 18 saves as the Bruins beat the New York Islanders 2-1 Saturday night, snapping a four-game losing streak.

Nash broke a 1-1 tie with his second goal of the contest at 4:12 of the third period, beating Islanders goalie Thomas Greiss from the slot for his seventh goal of the season. Dominic Moore assisted on the decisive goal, which moved Boston two points ahead of the Islanders for the second wild card in the Eastern Conference.
