Riley Wetmore and Ryan Strome scored first-period goals to help the New York Islanders defeat the Ottawa Senators, 4-1, completing a split-squad doubleheader sweep of the Sens at Scotiabank Place.
Ryan Pulock and Brock Nelson added second-period goals to give New York a 4-0 lead. Evgeni Nabokov stopped 14 of 15 shots through two periods and Ken Reiter made 11 saves in the third.
"This is a hard League and if you don't come prepared to play and work any team in this League can beat you," Senators coach Paul MacLean said. "That team that played us flat outworked us in every area of the game and deserved to win and that should give us a real good wake-up call going into next week."
