    Marek Zidlicky scored twice and Thomas Greiss made 27 saves for his first shutout of the season to lead the Islanders to a 4-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Sunday, extending New York's streak without a regulation loss to 10 games.

    John Tavares and Matt Martin also scored for the Islanders, are on an 8-0-2 stretch and moved into second place in the Metropolitan Division -- one point ahead of the crosstown-rival Rangers. The Islanders trailed the Rangers by 11 points entering play on Nov. 25.

    The Islanders also improved to 11-4-2 at home in their first season at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

    Cory Schneider gave up three goals on 18 shots before he was replaced by Keith Kincaid after Martin's goals 7 1/2 minutes into the second period. Kincaid finished with 11 saves.

    The Devils were again without Travis Zajac (upper body injury) and Adam Henrique (lower body).
