John Tavares beats Maple Leafs with spectacular OT goal (VIDEO)

John Tavares is slowly building a legacy out on Long Island and, if last night was any indication, he'll be doing it long after the Islanders move to Brooklyn next year.

The Isles' captain scored on a sensational individual effort with 21.8 seconds left in overtime for a 4-3 Islanders win over the slumping Maple Leafs, salvaging a win from a game in which the Isles twice trailed by two goals in the third period.

It's the kind of momentum they can take that back home to their key match-up with the Rangers Tuesday night.

The game-winner was Tavares' 33rd goal of the season and second point of the night to increase his NHL leading point total to 72.

And to top it off, mom and dad were in the house last night to see it.
