Halak, Islanders keep Jackets cold

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Jaroslav Halak stopped 37 shots for his 37th career shutout Tuesday to lead the surging Islanders to their fourth straight win, 4-0 over the winless Blue Jackets.

Nikolay Kulemin gave New York the lead late in the first period, and Thomas Hickey, Cal Clutterbuck and John Tavares all scored in the third. Halak made a second straight start after returning from an upper-body injury.

Columbus extended its franchise-worst start and became the third team in modern history to open a season 0-7.
