Rested Islanders aim for third straight win

UNIONDALE, New York (Ticker) -- The New York Islanders shoot for a season-high third straight win Saturday when they host the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Islanders should be well-rested as haven't played since a 4-3 overtime win over New Jersey on October 20.

New York's Bill Guerin scored the game-winner in that victory and has four goals in his past two games. The Islanders have scored nine goals during their modest win streak, which is a good sign considering the team had scored just five in its first four games.

Another key to the Islanders' success has been their penalty killing. Led by netminder Rick DiPietro, New York is 10-for-10 in penalty killing during its last two games.

Carolina goaltender Cam Ward meanwhile is trying to redeem himself after one of his worst outings of the season.

Ward entered Friday's game against Montreal with a 1.85 goals-against average, but allowed five goals in the first period of a 7-4 loss and was replaced by John Grahame. Ward is is 4-1-0 with a 2.01 GAA in five games against New York.
