BOSTON 3, NY ISLANDERS 2 

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia (AP) -- Tyler Redenbach beat Mike Dunham on Boston's first shot of the game and the Bruins went on to beat the New York Islanders for the second straight night, winning 3-2 in exhibition play Saturday night.

Glen Murray and Jonathan Sigalet also scored for the Bruins (4-1-0), coming off a 5-1 victory over the Islanders on Friday night in Moncton, New Brunswick.

"What we are trying to do is establish a winning mentality, find different ways to win with all the different lineups," first-year Bruins coach Dave Lewis said.

Andy Hilbert and Tom Poti scored for New York (0-2-0).

"We have to get a lot of the rust out of our game and hopefully improve," said Islanders coach Ted Nolan, also in his first season with the team.

Redenbach surprised goalie Mike Dunham with a quick shot from the side of the net 2:01 into the game. Dunham, in the Islanders' camp on a tryout, got a piece of the puck, but it deflected off his pads and through his legs.

Murray, from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, made it 2-0 with 5:27 left in the first period, scoring off a feed from Marc Savard.

"It was good to come back close to home and see some family," Murray said.

Sigalet made it 3-0 with 3:56 to go in the period when he scored on a power play.

Dunham stopped 10 of 13 shots before being replace by Rick DiPietro halfway through the second period. Hannu Toivonen went the distance for the Bruins, stopping 23 shots.

Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara (bruised foot) sat out his second straight game.
