UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Rick DiPietro turned aside 30 shots, and Alexei Yashin scored the decisive goal in the New York Islanders' 5-2 victory over the slumping Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday night.

Mike York, Viktor Kozlov, Mike Sillinger and Jason Blake also scored for the Islanders, who went 4-1-2 on their seven-game homestand. After visiting New Jersey on Thursday, New York will play two more games at home before a five-game road trip.

Jassen Cullimore and Denis Arkhipov scored for the Blackhawks, who snapped a three-game shutout streak but lost their sixth straight game. Chicago hasn't won since a 2-1 home victory over Montreal on Oct. 18. Brian Boucher stopped 19 shots but fell to 0-6.

Cullimore's goal with 4:14 left in the second period was the Blackhawks' first in 240 minutes, 56 seconds - dating to a score by Michal Handzus on Oct. 21 in a 4-3 home loss to St. Louis.

The Blackhawks outshot the Islanders 10-8 in the opening period, but New York had the better chances. The Islanders took advantage of their third power play with 1:41 left in the period when York knocked in the rebound of Miroslav Satan's right point slap shot for his third goal of the season.
