Bergenheim, Islanders look to build off good performance

Phoenix (28-32-5) at NY Islanders (21-37-7), 3:00 pm EDT

UNIONDALE, New York (Ticker) -- Sean Bergenheim will hope to

build off his first career hat trick as the New York Islanders

host the Phoenix Coyotes on Sunday.

Bergenheim's performance Saturday helped the Islanders hand

Martin Brodeur his first loss since returning from a four-month

absence with a 7-3 victory over the New Jersey Devils.

"I think maybe (Brodeur) had an off-day," Bergenheim said. "We

had a good game, though. I wouldn't blame him. It was just us

being good today."

New York, which owns the worst record in the NHL, has won three

of its last four contests.

The Coyotes, who are in the midst of a five-game road trip, are

coming off a 5-1 loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Friday.

Matthew Lombardi scored his first goal since being acquired at

the trade deadline for Phoenix, which has lost 13 of its

previous 17 contests.
