Mathew Barzal scored, and Thomas Greiss made 34 saves for the Islanders (19-7-2), who have lost two of three.

Cogliano scored his first goal of the season at 11:59 of the first period to give Dallas a 1-0 lead. Jamie Oleksiak‘s centering pass went in off Cogliano’s right skate in the crease.

Radulov, who was a healthy scratch for a 3-2 overtime win against the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday, scored with a wrist shot from above the circles through traffic on the power play at 16:02 to make it 2-0.

The Stars outshot the Islanders 16-11 in the first period.

Gurianov tipped a Radulov shot for a power-play goal at 3:12 of the second period to give Dallas a 3-0 lead.
