Ladd, Halak lead Islanders to 4-2 win over rival Rangers

NEW YORK (AP) The New York Islanders are playing their best hockey of the season, and they're doing it against some of the top teams in the Eastern Conference.

Andrew Ladd scored in the second period and Jaroslav Halak stopped 36 shots to lead the Islanders to a 4-2 victory over the crosstown-rival Rangers on Tuesday night. John Tavares, Jason Chimera and Scott Mayfield also scored at Barclays Center to help the last-place Islanders improve to 4-0-1 in their last five games.

"We're playing a lot better hockey and we know we can still be a lot better so I think that's really the mindset," Tavares said. "Lot of games here before Christmas. ... We know we can still do a lot of good things `til then. We're just starting the second quarter of the season."
