UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Andy Hilbert scored in the 10th round of the shootout to lead the New York Islanders to a 4-3 victory over the Florida Panthers on Saturday night.

Miroslav Satan, with the help of a video review, scored for the Islanders in the first round, but on their last chance, Olli Jokinen of the Panthers beat Rick DiPietro to tie the shootout score.

Jay Bouwmeester tied the game at 3-3 with 3:29 left in regulation when he got a bounce off teammate Stephen Weiss' skate and blasted the puck past Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro.

Shawn Bates, Alexei Yashin and Jason Blake scored for New York, who is now 3-1-2 after six games of a seven-game home stand. Rick DiPietro turned aside 22 shots for just his second win this season.

Nathan Horton and Joel Kwiatkowski also scored for the Panthers, who have only won twice in their last eight games. Ed Belfour was solid in goal stopping 36 shots.

Bates scored his first goal this season at 5:55 of the opening period. He was sent on a breakaway off a perfect feed from Brendan Witt, and his 10-foot wrist shot from the low slot squirted between Belfour's pads. DiPietro also earned an assist on the play.

Horton tied the game at 7:59 on the Panthers' first power play. He moved down low on the right side, outmuscled defenceman Sean Hill, and shoved a backhand past DiPietro.
