BOSTON (AP) — Thomas Greiss stopped 48 shots, Anders Lee scored twice and had an assist, and the New York Islanders beat the Boston Bruins 4-2 Tuesday night to snap a five-game winless streak.

Thomas Hickey and Nikolay Kulemin also scored for the Islanders in their first win since beating St. Louis on Dec. 8. New York was outscored 24-12 while going 0-4-1 in the five games since.

Greiss took a shutout into the third period and was able to hold off the Bruins after they pulled to 3-2 on goals by Anton Blidh and Dominic Moore. Greiss made 23 saves in the third period and got a little cushion when Lee scored a power-play goal with 6:58 left to put the Islanders back up two.

The Bruins lost for the fourth time in their last five at home.
