Bruins: Team beats Islanders for 16th time in 20 meetings

(AP) — Brad Marchand scored the goal-ahead in the second period and the Bruins continued their dominance of the Islanders with a 4-1 victory Tuesday night — Boston’s 16th win in its last 20 games against New York.

Adam McQuaid, David Krejci and Greg Campbell also scored for the Bruins (12-2-2), who won their fourth straight to bolster their best start since the 1976-77 season. All four victories have come on the road, where the Bruins are 8-1-1.

Casey Cizikas scored for the Islanders, who are a league-worst 2-8 at home.

The Bruins came out flying, punishing the Islanders along the boards at both ends of the ice and not relenting for 60 minutes. Boston is 16-3-1 in its last 20 games against the Islanders, who remain in the basement of the Atlantic Division.
