Need to Know: After giving up one in the first, Jaroslav Halak made 34 saves on the night to keep the Isles on top.
While Cal Clutterbuck banked his third goal of the season to give New York the go-ahead in the second, Casey Cizikas' empty netter solidified the win in the third as the Isles killed a 5-on-3 New Jersey power play.
Even though the Islanders set the tone in the first taking a 1-0 lead with a Nikolay Kulemin goal, the Devils fought back with a 16-2 edge in SOG in the third. But Halak stopped five straight with just nine minutes left to stifle any chance at a tying goal.
What's Next: The Islanders welcome the Ottawa Senators to Nassau Coliseum Tuesday December 2. Game time is set for 7 p.m.
