Jaroslav Halak stoned the New York Rangers once again as the New York Islanders maintained their recent mastery of their crosstown rivals with a 4-1 victory at Nassau Coliseum. Two weeks after shutting out the Rangers in Madison Square Garden, Halak came within 8.1 seconds of another to lead the Islanders to their third win over the Blueshirts in as many meetings this season. The Islanders have outscored the Rangers 13-4 in those matchups. Mikhail Grabovski returned from a five-game absence to record the first of the Islanders' goals, with Matt Martin, Ryan Strome and John Tavares also scoring in the Metropolitan Division leaders' sixth win in seven games. Carl Hagelin spoiled Halak's shutout bid with a power-play tally and Henrik Lundqvist came up with 34 saves in the loss, which halted the Rangers' three-game win streak prior to the All-Star break.
