Recap: NY Islanders vs. New Jersey

Uniondale, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Jaroslav Halak posted 34 saves, and the New York Islanders grabbed a 3-1 win over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday.

Casey Cizikas had a goal and an assist while Cal Clutterbuck and Nikolay Kulemin each scored a goal for the Islanders, who have won six of their last seven.

"I think guys did a hell of a job out there," said Halak. "Anytime we were short-handed and didn't give up any shots I think it is a successful (penalty kill) and they came up huge."

Damien Brunner had the only goal of the game for the Devils, who have lost four straight and six of seven. Cory Schneider allowed two goals on 27 shots in the loss.

"We can be encouraged by it but we can't be happy or satisfied," said Schneider.

The Islanders grabbed a 1-0 lead with 7:20 to play in the first as Kyle Okposo's slap shot from the right point got behind Schneider and sat on the goal line where Kulemin swept it in for his fifth of the year.

New Jersey tied the game less than two minutes later as Adam Larsson threw a shot on net from the right point, and it was deflected in by Brunner for his second of the season.

Just 3:32 into the second, New York went on top as Calvin de Haan's blast from the high slot was tipped in by Clutterbuck in front of the net.

Halak stopped 16 shots in the third period to preserve the lead, including several saves during a New Jersey power play late in the game that saw the team skating 6-on-4 after pulling Schneider.

Cizikas sealed the victory with an empty-netter in the final seconds of the contest.
