New York's penalty kill limited the Senators to one power-play goal on eight opportunities.

Horvat opened the scoring on the power play at 2:41 of the first period. Dobson recorded the primary assist and extended his point streak to five games.

The Islanders extended their first-period lead to 2-0 when Clutterbuck buried a feed from Casey Cizikas at 13:05.

The Senators scored twice within 5:33 in the middle of the second period.

Chychrun evened the score as his shot sailed past the glove of Sorokin at 12:25. The 25-year-old defenseman made a move at the blue line to avoid Islanders forward Anders Lee and registered his fourth goal of the season.

Giroux notched Ottawa's first goal when he converted on a 4-on-3 power play at 6:52, firing a wrist shot through traffic past the blocker of Sorokin.

The Senators outshot the Islanders 17-10 in the second period.
