OTTAWA, Ontario — Nick Leddy scored his second goal of the first period on a penalty shot and the New York Islanders beat the Ottawa Senators 4-2 on Friday night for their sixth straight victory.

Matt Martin and Derick Brassard also scored and Thomas Greiss made 30 saves to help the Islanders improve to 6-3-0 and drop the Senators to 2-6-1

Tyler Ennis scored twice for Ottawa. Anders Nilsson allowed four goals on 16 shots before being pulled. Craig Anderson stopped all 13 shots he faced in relief.

Leddy tied it 13 minutes into the second, beating Nilsson through the pads, and made it 2-1 with 2:41 left in the period when he beat Nilsson on the penalty shot after being taken down by Nikita Zaitsev.

Leddy appeared to have scored a natural hat trick early in the second period, but Martin got a piece of his shot as the Islanders took a 3-1 lead.
