Petr Sykora scored and Johan Hedberg made 23 saves to earn his second shutout of the season and the 19th of his NHL career to lead the New Jersey Devils to a 1-0 win over the New York Islanders on Friday.

Sykora scored with a snap shot during a power play with 5:47 remaining in the second period.

New Jersey has won four of its last six games. New York has lost four in a row. In that stretch, the Islanders have been outscored 16-3.

Sykora’s power play goal was his fifth of the season. He snapped a bullet over Al Montoya’s glove from the slot.

Montoya, who had missed New York’s last six games, started in goal for New York and finished with 22 saves.
