PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Andrej Meszaros scored at 4:42 of overtime to lift the Philadelphia Flyers to a 4-3 win over the New York Islanders on Thursday night.

Meszaros buried a 25-footer from the slot over Al Montoya’s right shoulder for his fifth goal of the season and helped the Flyers continue their dominance over the Islanders.

Matt Martin’s second goal of the game with 27.2 seconds left in the third period sent the game into overtime. He scored earlier in the period to make it 3-2.

Mike Richards, Jeff Carter and James van Reimsdyk also scored goals for the Flyers.

The Flyers continue to dominate the Islanders, beating them for the 12th straight time in Philadelphia. They have won 19 of the past 20 overall against their Atlantic Division rival.

The Islanders haven’t won in Philadelphia since a 4-2 win on April 7, 2007.
