Robin Lehner made 19 saves and Cal Clutterbuck scored two goals as the New York Islanders skated to their second straight shutout win, blanking the Anaheim Ducks 3-0 at NYCB Live.
The Islanders' shutout streak currently stands at 132:53, with both Thomas Greiss and Lehner delivering clean sheets over that span. The back-to-back shutouts are the exclamation point on a stingy defensive stretch for the Islanders, who have only allowed three goals on their five-game winning streak and held their last three opponents to under 20 shots.
"There's no secret ingredient, it's hard work, commitment and following our structure," Lehner said. "It leads to good things and we know we can go in confidently into a game against anyone in this league knowing we have a chance to win and it grows confidence."
With the win, the Islanders (62 points) remain first in the Metropolitan Division and hold a three-point lead on Washington and Columbus.
