NEW YORK -- Anders Lee scored 25 goals as a rookie in 2014-15. This season hasn't gone quite as smoothly, but the New York Islanders' power forward is showing signs of being the player he and his team know he can be.

Lee's power-play goal with 11:05 remaining broke a tie and the Islanders defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins 2-1 at Barclays Center on Tuesday. New York (37-20-7) has won four in a row and moved five points ahead of the Penguins for third place in the Metropolitan Division. The Islanders are three points behind the second-place New York Rangers and have three games in hand.
