NEW YORK -- ??? Johnny Boychuk picked a great time for the first short-handed goal of his career.The veteran defensemans goal early in the third period lifted the New York Islanders to a 3-2 victory over the Arizona Coyotes on Friday night. It was a key win for a team playing 22 of its first 34 games at Barclays Center, including their current run of 10 of 11 at home.It was a good win for us, especially at home, said Boychuk, who has 38 career goals. We need to get as many home points as we can while we have this home stretch.Dennis Seidenberg and Ryan Strome also scored for New York, and Jaroslav Halak stopped 23 shots to help the Islanders win for the second time in three home games after opening with two road losses.Boychuks goal at 4:24 of the final period -- with teammate Calvin de Haan in the penalty box -- came after Brock Nelson won a faceoff in the Coyotes zone and sent the puck back to Boychuk at the point. Boychuk fired a shot that found its way past Louis Domingue for his first goal of the season.He won the face-off clean and it was rolling, Boychuk added. It took a 12-to-6 curve ball and went in.Brad Richardson and Radim Vrbata scored 13 seconds apart in the first period to tie the score for the Coyotes. Domingue had 28 saves as Arizona lost its third straight on the road after opening with a home win.You just have to turn the page, its been a tough start to the year, said Domingue, elevated with starter Mike Smith injured earlier this week. I know Boychuk is a shooter in that situation. Sometimes pucks just find their way.The game marked the first NHL meeting between the Strome brothers. Dylan Strome, 19, was the third overall pick by the Coyotes in the 2015 draft and made his debut earlier this week. Ryan Strome, 23, was the fifth overall pick in the Islanders in the 2011 draft.Seidenberg opened the scoring at 4:45 of the first with his first goal as an Islander, rifling the puck past Domingue after a cross-ice pass from Casey Cizikas. The 35-year-old Seidenberg joined the Islanders after playing the last seven seasons with Boston.Ryan Strome made it 2-0 with about 6 1/2 minutes left, knocking a rebound past Domingue for his second of this season. Boychuk got his 100th career assist on the play.It was pretty weird, Ryan Strome said about facing his younger brother. Honestly, its tough because youre watching and making sure your brother is doing alright too.Richardson pulled the Coyotes within one with 5:51 remaining in the period before veteran Vrbata tied when he tipped a shot by rookie defenseman Jakob Chychrun past Halak.Shane Doan, the Coyotes 40-year-old captain and third among active NHL players in games played with 1,470, assisted on Richardsons goal.Domingue made key saves on Jason Chimera and Andrew Ladd on point-blank shots from in front as the Islanders had a 16-4 edge on shots in the second period.The Islanders are 2-1 at home against Western Conference opponents this season after going 12-0-2 at Barclays Center a year ago.We competed hard but we have to find ways to win, Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. We have to keep pounding away at it. We have to do a better job of executing to give us a better chance to win.Islanders defenseman Ryan Pulock made his season debut with Nick Leddy out with an upper-body injury. However, Pulock played only five shifts in the first period before leaving with a lower-body injury.Game notes The Coyotes are halfway through a six-game trip that continues against the New York Rangers, New Jersey and Philadelphia. ... Arizona concludes its season series against the Islanders at home on Jan. 7. ... New York is 2-0-0 when scoring first, and 0-3-0 when giving up the first goal. ... Ladd, the Islanders big free-agent acquisition this summer, has no points through the first five games. ... Nelson (2 goals, 3 assists) is the only Islanders player with at least a point in each of the first five games ...

With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. LOS ANGELES -- Final exams and preparing for a foe that prefers a slower pace hasnt left UCLA much time to celebrate the victory that vaulted the Bruins into the discussion of potential Final Four teams.Bruins coach Steve Alford said the coaches and players basked in the radiance of their 97-92 victory Dec. 3 at then-No. 1-ranked Kentucky for about 48 hours.I want them to enjoy it, Alford said. Its not just business, business, business. I want the guys enjoying winning and understanding what that feels like, so that when you get punched in the mouth you dont like that very much and you understand the two different tastes.Thats about all the schedule would allow because, while the newly-minted second-ranked Bruins (9-0) havent played a game since that win in Lexington, there were tests to prepare for and take in the classroom this week that Alford said arent over for some until 24 hours before tip-off.Any time you can be ranked in the Top 10 and youre undefeated and youre getting close to the finals, thats exciting, Alford said. Were starting to get healthy, the guys are doing a lot of good things but its nine games in. Thats all it is.The 9-0 Bruins are now focused on ways to keep their high-octane offense moving in Saturdays 5 p.m. PST showdown at Pauley Pavilion against Michigan. UCLA is averaging 97 points while the 7-2 Wolverines are allowing opponents just 58.2 points per outing.When asked at a Thursday press briefing how Alford plans to keep the Bruins from getting wrapped up in the hype of such a big win, he had a three-word response.We schedule Michigan, Alford said. We know that if we believe all that stuff and we dont improve this week we will get beat. Weve got a 7-2 Michigan team coming in here and theyre an upper-echelon team in the Big Ten and weve got Ohio State in another week.Theres oone element of this Bruin team that Alford believes is the biggest for the success theyve enjoyed so far.ddddddddddddhey move the ball, Alford said. Of all the teams Ive had in 26 years, this is probably the team that understands moving the ball at the rate that they move it. Its a selfless group.They really dont care if they get the hockey assist, the basketball assist or the basket, the ball just moves.Proof that the Bruins are getting those secondary and primary assists are assist numbers UCLA teams havent posted in nearly a decade. Three times this season -- against Pacific, Portland and UC Riverside -- the Bruins recorded a season-high 29 assists.Not since Dec. 31, 2006 did UCLA post as many as 29 assists in a single game. Not since 1995 have the Bruins cracked the 30-assist barrier in a 104-88 win at California.When they ball isnt moving are the times Alford said the Bruins have run into trouble.When weve struggled -- a little bit against Nebraska, a little bit against (Texas) A&M, when we saw a big 2/3 zone thrown at us, the ball has stopped, Alford said. The guys are seeing that. Now were getting ready to play a very, very good defensive team that plays a little bit different tempo than what we want to play.Thats whats going to be intriguing about the upcoming game of what tempo can be played. Regardless whether its a slower tempo or a quick tempo, we want the ball moving.When thats working optimally, as it was against Kentucky, is when UCLA is at its best.That was what was very impressive playing a team like Kentucky on their home floor, Alford said. For 40 minutes that ball moved. When were doing that, we do have a lot of guys that can put the ball in the basket. ' ' '
