Anders Lee scores twice, Islanders beat Sharks 4-1

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) The New York Islanders needed a boost at home after a rough four-game trip last week. Semylon Varlamov's strong netminding again proved key - as did a scoring injection from captain Anders Lee.

Lee scored twice and added an assist, Varlamov made 29 saves and the Islanders won their second straight at Nassau Coliseum, beating the San Jose Sharks 4-1 on Sunday night.

Defenseman Devon Toews and Josh Bailey also scored to help the Islanders move within one point of idle Philadelphia for third place in the tightly contested Metropolitan Division. The reeling Sharks lost their fourth straight.
