OTTAWA (AP) -- Chris Neil, Filip Kuba, Mike Fisher, Dany Heatley

and Nick Foligno scored to help the Ottawa Senators win their

seventh straight home game, 5-2, over the New York Islanders on

Saturday night.

Brian Elliott made 20 saves, and Daniel Alfredsson and Brendan

Bell had three assists each for Ottawa. The Senators improved

to 31-30-10, the first time they've been above .500 since

November 6. Josh Bailey scored twice in the third period for

New York.

Ottawa scored four second-period goals.

Neil opened the scoring 28 seconds into the period with a shot

from the slot that barely crossed the line after goalie Yann

Danis got a piece of the puck.

Kuba scored his third of the season at 9:14, and Fisher and

Heatley scored 37 seconds apart. Fisher used a chip shot to

score at 13:06, and Heatley snapped home a shot from the top of

the circle at 13:43.

Danis made 21 saves.
