UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) Once the New York Islanders finally figured out 20-year-old goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy, doing it again proved to be simple.

John Tavares and Anders Lee scored 12 seconds apart in the third period, after the Islanders had been stymied by Vasilevskiy, and New York stunned the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-1 with a late comeback Saturday night.

Shut down for nearly 57 minutes by Vasilevskiy, a 2012 first-round draft pick who played in his second NHL game, the Islanders stormed back after falling behind 1-0 on Brett Connolly's goal 9:16 into the third.
