Isles on a roll, shut out Avalanche
UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -- Nick Leddy and Anders Lee scored early and Jaroslav Halak stopped 20 shots for his second straight shutout as the New York Islanders beat the Colorado Avalanche 6-0 Tuesday night for their fourth straight win.
Travis Hamonic, Nikolay Kulemin, Casey Cizikas and Ryan Strome also scored to help the Islanders get their first home win since Oct. 25. New York extended its shutout streak to 181:11 and has allowed just three goals in their last four game.
Leddy opened the scoring at 1:33 on a shot from the left point, and Lee added a power-play goal at 5:21 from in close for his second of the season.
Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov finished with 40 saves as Colorado was outshot 13-5 in the first period, 15-8 in the second and 18-7 in the third.
