NEW YORK, N.Y. - All the accolades and platitudes the New York Rangers received during their recent three-game California sweep were quickly transferred to the rival New York Islanders, who dismantled the Broadway Blueshirts upon their return to Madison Square Garden.Undaunted and unfazed by the positive press heaped onto the Rangers, the Islanders made yet another statement in their surprisingly successful season. They vaulted to the top of the Eastern Conference on Tuesday night with a 3-0 win over the previously surging Rangers.Frans Nielsens short-handed tally capped the Islanders three-goal second period, Jaroslav Halak made 27 saves in his fourth shutout of the season, and the Islanders stretched their winning streak to three.We have a lot of hockey left, Islanders coach Jack Capuano said. This was a big game with a lot of media attention, and I thought we played well.For us, its about getting the two points. To play a team that is playing so well, and for them to come off the trip they came off, it gives the guys confidence that they can play against good hockey teams.The Islanders jumped over Tampa Bay for the top spot in the East, and maintained a one point lead in the Metropolitan Division over the Pittsburgh Penguins, whom they will host Friday.We recognize were battling for the top of the division and the conference, Islanders captain John Tavares said.The Rangers had won five straight and 13 of 14 — a run punctuated by their trek through California last week — but the Islanders finished a seven-game road trip with a flourish.They are 2-0 this season against the Rangers with three meetings remaining, and heard chants of Lets Go Islanders in the last minute of this one.Shortly after the Islanders had a goal waved off because of goalie interference, Anders Lee broke the deadlock at 8:49 of the second. Nikolay Kulemin made it 2-0 with 3:39 left, and Nielsen pushed the lead to three with the Islanders NHL-leading seventh short-handed goal of the season — but first on the road. That came with 40.9 seconds remaining to put an exclamation point on the dominant frame in which the Islanders had a 19-12 shots advantage.We kept our heads on our shoulders and played our game, Lee said. On the road you want to play a simple game and really wear them down.Halak improved to 23-8 this season as he posted his 34th NHL shutout.Henrik Lundqvist and the Rangers found themselves in a most unfamiliar position, trailing at all and being behind by multiple goals. They fell behind 2-0 at Los Angeles last Thursday before rallying to win. Their previous three-goal deficit was in a 6-3 home loss to Tampa Bay on Dec. 1.In the second period, there is no doubt we were a step behind in our execution, a step behind in our decision-making, and they took over, Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said.The short-handed goal that squeezed under Lundqvists arm was the back-breaker.I made a lot of good saves and I felt like I was playing the way I should, but that was a big goal, Lundqvist said. Weve been good lately minimizing periods like that and playing hard, but that was a tough outing.Cam Talbot took over in the third for Lundqvist, who stopped 29 of 32 shots. Talbot made 12 saves. Only four times in the previous 15 games had the Rangers allowed as many as three goals.The Islanders (29-13-1) hold a seven-point lead over the fourth-place Rangers (24-12-4), who have three games in hand.The Islanders held a 13-9 shots edge in the first period.Lundqvist squared up to most of the Islanders chances, and Halak had his moments of pressure. He denied Mats Zuccarello in tight with 8:58 left and then got bailed out by the posts in a Rangers flurry with 3:30 remaining.Rangers All-Star Rick Nash got between defenders in the slot and sent a drive off the right post. The carom came to Derick Brassard, who fired the puck so hard off the right post that it came across and struck the left post, as well.NOTES: Rangers C Derek Stepan sustained an upper-body injury and didnt play in the third period. The extent of the injury wasnt immediately known. ... Lee and Kulemin both scored for the second straight game. ... It was the third time since yielding five goals to Tampa Bay that Lundqvist allowed three goals in a game. He was 11-1 in his previous 12 appearances. ... The Islanders, who beat the Rangers 6-3 at Madison Square Garden on Oct. 14, went 5-2 on their road trip. ... The Rangers will begin a three-game trip Thursday at Boston. Mike Wallace Jersey .
