Islanders hold on to beat Red Wings 5-4

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) Winless at home all month and slipping in the standings, the New York Islanders needed this one in a big way.

Frans Nielsen's goal 16 seconds into the second period broke a 3-3 tie and the Islanders held on to beat the Detroit Red Wings 5-4 on Sunday.

The Islanders came in winless in seven previous home games, last winning at Nassau Coliseum over Calgary on Feb. 27, and with only one victory in their last eight contests overall.
