However, Ottawa (10-9-4) has totaled 22 goals during a 4-0-1 stretch on Long Island, but hasnt recorded more than three in a game while losing five of seven. Youre losing momentum, so we have to get momentum back on our side, Ottawa coach Paul MacLean said. The only thing you can do is win your next game. After missing two games, forward Bobby Ryan will be a game-time decision. Fourth on the team with 13 points, Ryan is out indefinitely after he suffered a fractured finger in Fridays 3-2 loss at Florida. Teammate Clarke MacArthur has scored only one of his team-high eight goals in 11 games, and none in the last six. Coming off their best November in 34 years, the Islanders look to win seven straight home games for the first time in more than a decade. Jaroslav Halak made 16 of his 34 saves in the third period to help New York (17-7-0) beat New Jersey 3-1 at Nassau Coliseum on Saturday. Winners in 11 of 13, the Islanders have reached 17 victories faster than in any season during the clubs storied history. New Yorks 11 wins in November are second to the 1980-81 Stanley Cup champion team that won 12. Were doing some good things and we believe in ourselves, said captain John Tavares, who has recorded five of his team-leading 23 points in the last five games. You can see the poise and composure we have now. We just have to keep that going. That is the challenge awaiting a franchise thats been to the playoffs once in seven seasons and hasnt won a postseason series since 1993. Well build off it and get better, Tavares told the Islanders official website. Its obviously been good to get the results we wanted. This puts us in good position, but theres a long way to go. Were doing some good things and we believe in ourselves. That belief has made the difference in the eyes of coach Jack Capuano. From top to bottom, we know were not going to lose, he said. Its about the players and its about accountability, Capuano added when talking to the NHLs official website. Thats the biggest thing for me - the leadership, how theyre handling one another and how theyre holding one another accountable. You can be very successful that way. Playing their last season on Long Island before moving to Brooklyn, the Islanders are 9-2-0 at the Coliseum and own a 22-6 goal advantage during a six-game winning streak there. The Islanders last won seven straight at home from Dec. 6-29, 2003. Halak has played a key role in the teams overall success, posting a 1.19 goals-against average during a nine-game winning streak that followed an 0-4-0 slide during which he had a 3.89 GAA. Halak could have the chance Tuesday to match Billy Smiths club record of 10 straight victories from 1982. Im not thinking of how many games Ive won in the past, Halak said. Im only as good as my last game. Halak faced the Senators for the first time in four years Feb. 4 and dropped his fourth straight to them in a 5-4 shootout loss while with St. Louis.

The Winnipeg Goldeyes have assured themselves a winning record on this behemoth 10-game road trip to start the season. Clint Frazier Jersey . A clutch seventh inning pushed the Goldeyes (6-3) past the Lincoln Saltdogs (4-5) 7-4 Saturday night at Haymarket Park in Lincoln before 4,222 spectators. After the two sides exchanged a pair of runs in the second inning, Lincoln grabbed a 4-2 lead with two runs in the bottom of the fourth. The Goldeyes quickly struck back in the top of the fifth inning to tie the game once again, as left fielder Ray Sadler scored on a ground out by third baseman Josh Mazzola and right fielder Donnie Webb belted the next pitch out of the park for his first home run of the season. For the second straight night, Winnipeg found the winning run in the seventh inning. With Sadler on third and centre fielder Reggie Abercrombie on second, Mazzola singled to score both base runners. "Youre just trying to get the ball in play and find a hole out there," Goldeyes pitching coach Jamie Vermilyea said on the Jewel 101 post-game game show of Mazzolas at-bat. "He battled up there and fouled off a couple tough pitches before he got one he could handle. It was a big AB."Mazzola then stole second – his league-leading sixth stolen base of the season – and scored on a single by Webb."Anytime you can take advantage of that and steal that extra base is big," Vermilyea said. "Thats part of our thing this year. Were going to be aggressive on the base paths." After starter Nick Hernandez went five innings for Winnipeg, the Goldeyes bullpen was spectacular in the second half of the game. Southpaw Gabe Aguilar struck out five Saltdogs in 2 2/3 innings of middle relief work. Fellow lefty Brendan Lafferty got the final out of the eighth inning and Chris Kissock pitched the ninth for his second consecutive save in as many nights. The pitching staff combined for a season-high 12 strikeouts. Aguilar picked up the win, while Lincoln reliever Jake Meiers, who was on the hook for the three runs in the seventh inning, suffered the loss. Four Goldeyes had multi-hit nights, while Mazzola had three RBI. The two sides will meet in the series finale Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. Lefty Chris Salamida will look for his first win of the season against Nick Green, who will make his first start of the season for Lincoln. The Goldeyes return home on Monday for their home opener against the Sioux City Explorers. Joe Torre Jersey . Seager had another triple, a home run and a double in a rare feat not seen in more than 40 years, leading Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners past the New York Yankees 10-2. "It was a weird play," Seager said of the triple in the fourth inning. Giancarlo Stanton Jersey . LOUIS -- To stay a step ahead of goaltenders, T.The Rochester Knighthawks agreed to terms on a three-year extension with Cory Vitarelli through the 2016 season. "It feels great (to re-sign with Rochester)," Vitarelli said. "Ive had two great years so far and weve been very successful, so its great to be part of the team again." Since joining the Knighthawks late in the 2011 season, Vitarelli is tied with veteran forward Mike Accursi for second in goals scored with 61, and has finished second only to Cody Jamieson with 54 goals over the past two seasons. "Hes a guy that can get through the middle. He works extremely hhard to get his teammates open, and at the same time, has that ability to put the ball in the net himself," said Knighthawks head coach Mike Hasen. Elston Howard Jersey . Despite his success, Vitarellis name often goes unmentioned, and he has rightfully earned the teams Unsung Hero Award in 2012 and 2013. "I think it benefits me as a guy who goes under the radar and is able to chip in here and there with goals that maybe dont get quite as much recognition," Vitarelli said. "Were a unit up there, and to be successful, we all need to sort of chip in at different times." ' ' '
