ATLANTA (AP) - Jason Blake scored the go-ahead goal midway through the third period and Miroslav Satan had a goal and two assists to help the New York Islanders beat the Atlanta Thrashers 5-2 on Thursday night.

After blowing a 3-0 lead in the third period on Wednesday and losing to Detroit in overtime, the Islanders couldn't hold a 2-1 advantage as Jim Slater's wrist shot beat goalie Mike Dunham on the stick side with 10:23 remaining.

Blake bailed out New York with a breakaway goal 2:19 later, sending the puck from the right circle over the shoulder of goalie Kari Lehtonen. It was his fourth goal in five games.

Trent Hunter's 12th goal, which came on the power play with 3:59 left, made it 4-2. Victor Kozlov scored twice, including an empty-netter.

New York earned three of a possible four points in Atlanta during a seven-day span. The Islanders fell behind 3-0 to the Thrashers in the opening six minutes last Friday but rallied to force overtime.
