Feb. 26, 2012 at 8:15 PM

OTTAWA, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Ottawa's Kyle Turris and Chris Neil each netted a goal and an assist Sunday and the Senators stayed hot with a 5-2 victory over the New York Islanders.

Jason Spezza, Milan Michalek and Jim O'Brien also scored for the Senators, who won for the fifth time in six games and strengthened their hold on the seventh playoff seed in the Eastern Conference.

Erik Karlsson and Nick Foligno each provided two assists and Robin Lehner earned the victory with 28 saves for Ottawa.

The Islanders got a goal and an assist from P.A. Parenteau and a goal from John Tavares, but it wasn't enough to prevent their third setback in four games.

Evgeni Nabokov surrendered four goals on 23 shots for New York.
