Islanders blank Penguins 2-0 behind rookie Sorokin

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) Islanders rookie Ilya Sorokin made 20 saves for his second shutout, and Oliver Wahlstrom and Jean-Gabriel Pageau each scored power-play goals as New York finished a strong February with a 2-0 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday night.

The Islanders went 8-2-2 during February, with all four losses coming against the Penguins - who they were playing for sixth time in the month. The Islanders remained the only team in the league without a regulation loss at home, with a 7-0-2 mark at Nassau Coliseum.

The 25-year-old Sorokin made his fifth start for the Islanders and both of his NHL victories have been shutouts, including his win Feb. 16 at Buffalo. It was the first time the Islanders recorded a shutout against the Penguins since January 1986 when Kelly Hrudey managed the feat.
