Eberle, Nelson back Lehner as Islanders beat Coyotes 2-0

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) The New York Islanders used a smothering defense and some timely scoring to move closer to a playoff berth.

Jordan Eberle and Brock Nelson scored to back Robin Lehner's fifth shutout of the season as the Islanders beat the Arizona Coyotes 2-0 Sunday.

Lehner stopped 31 shots to help the Islanders win for the second time in two days and keep pace with first place Washington in the Metropolitan Division. The Capitals, who beat Philadelphia 3-1 earlier Sunday, lead New York by one point with six games remaining for both teams, including a matchup at Washington in the season finale on April 6.
