Lowly Islanders eyeing rare four-game win streak

Tampa Bay (17-23-10) at NY Islanders (15-29-5), 7:00 pm EST

UNIONDALE, New York (Ticker) -- Yann Danis has the New York

Islanders on a roll.

The Islanders will seek a season-best fourth consecutive victory

Tuesday when they take on the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Danis made 37 saves to lead the New York Islanders to a 3-1

victory over the Florida Panthers on Saturday. He nearly

recorded his first shutout of the season, but Gregory Campbell

scored for Florida with 87 seconds left in the third period.

Mike Comrie gave the Islanders the lead with a first-period goal

and captain Bill Guerin and rookie Kyle Okposo scored in the

final session for New York.

The Lightning are coming off a 6-1 loss to the Philadelphia

Flyers on Friday.

Tampa Bay, which concludes a brief two-game road trip in

Pittsburgh on Wednesday, has lost back-to-back contests

following a three-game winning streak.
