Following its last game before the All-Star break, New York is assured of being on top of the Metropolitan Division when it resumes play next week. The Islanders, 15-2 against divisional foes, are off until they host the New York Rangers next Tuesday. New York is 16-4 overall at home.

Michael Grabner, John Tavares, Josh Bailey and Nick Leddy each had a goal and an assist.

Grabner gave the Islanders the lead on their first shot, and Kulemin made it 3-0 with a short-handed tally on New York's first shot of the second period. Kulemin also scored in between, and Bailey and Tavares found the net in the Islanders' three-goal middle period.
