Ty Smith extends points streak to 5, Devils beat Islanders

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Ty Smith set up two first-period goals to become the sixth NHL rookie defenseman to get points in his first five games, leading the New Jersey Devils to an 2-0 victory over the New York Islanders on Sunday night.

Scott Wedgewood, who spent last season in the AHL, made 28 saves for his first NHL shutout since blanking the Devils in December 2017 for Arizona. The win was his first in an NHL game since February 2018.

"I'm proud of myself," Wedgewood said, noting his biggest thrill of the night was getting the shutout as a birthday present for his mother, Brenda. He has not seen his parents in Toronto since October.
