NEW YORK _ Zach Parise scored the tie-breaking goal with just over eight minutes left in the third period and Ilya Sorokin made 14 saves as the New York Islanders edged Philadelphia 4-3.

The reeling Flyers notched their franchise-record 13th straight loss.

Parise rifled the puck past Flyers goalie Martin Jones at 11:51 for his third goal of the season as the Islanders improved to 8-2-1 in their last 11 games and beat the Flyers for the ninth straight time.

Flyers defenseman Keith Yandle broke the NHL record by playing in his 965th consecutive game. The 35-year-old, who has also played for the Arizona Coyotes, New York Rangers and Florida Panthers, surpassed the previous record held by forward Doug Jarvis, who played 964 straight games over his entire career from Oct. 8, 1975, to Oct. 10, 1987.

Yandle waved to the Islanders crowd when his accomplishment was acknowledged midway through the first period.

The gritty 37-year-old Parise is one of three Islanders to play all 35 games during this COVID-impacted season. Brock Nelson and Anthony Beauvillier assisted on Parise’s winning goal.

Pittsburgh has 17 wins in its last 19 games. Bryan Rust and Brock McGinn both scored their 10th goals of the season and Brian Boyle added a third-period goal.

NOTES

SHARKS: Defenseman Erik Karlsson is expected to miss at least two months with an injury to his left forearm.

The Sharks said Karlsson underwent surgery Monday to repair a small muscle tear in his left forearm. The team said Karlsson is expected to be re-evaluated in mid-March.

The loss of Karlsson is a big blow to the Sharks, who began the day tied with Calgary for the fourth most points in the Pacific Division with 44. But San Jose has played five more games than the Flames and five more than Edmonton. The Oilers are four points behind the Sharks.

Karlsson was playing some of his best hockey since joining the Sharks in 2018. His eight goals are tied for his best in four seasons in San Jose and he also has 18 assists.
