OTTAWA -- There has been very little room for error for the Ottawa Senators over the past couple of weeks, but now, there is none. Zdeno Chara Jersey . Josh Bailey had a goal and an assist as the New York Islanders earned a 2-1 win over Ottawa Wednesday, leaving the Senators five points out of a playoff spot with just five games to play and four teams ahead of them. "We knew they were a desperate team and we knew it was going to be a tough game." Bailey said. "They came at us pretty hard." Bailey scored a power-play goal in the first period, and assisted on the winning goal from Casey Cizikas midway through the third, when he outwaited Senators goaltender Craig Anderson and slid the puck into the crease from behind the goal-line for Cizikas. The win was the third straight and fifth in six games for the Islanders (31-35-10), who were helped by a 35-save performance from rookie Anders Nilsson. Ryan Strome chipped in with two assists. Milan Michalek scored the lone goal for the Senators (32-30-14), on the power play 6:41 into the third period to tie the game 1-1. That goal game exactly 110 minutes after the last Senators goal, with the exception of a shoot-out goal in Mondays 2-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. Michalek was at the side of the Islanders goal when he jammed a loose puck past Nilsson with four bodies lying in the crease. "I thought I had a glove on it but its tough. It was so fast and it was tough for me to know and tough for the ref to see," Nilsson said of the goal. "Those goals happen. They did a good job crashing the net and the puck came loose so credit to them. "We battled hard and everyone stuck up for each other. Everybody is doing a hell of a job and battling hard and thats why we keep on winning." The loss snapped a three game winning streak for the Senators. They had also recorded points in five straight games going into Wednesday. "We didnt score goals and youre not going to win hockey games when you dont score goals," Senators defenceman Marc Methot said. "Its deflating, for sure. Its funny because I thought we played pretty good hockey. We just couldnt bury it when we had opportunities and it sucks in terms of the atmosphere in the room. We were riding a pretty nice high despite our situation in the standings. "When youre stringing together wins at any point in the season it feels good so were going to keep rolling and keep trying to get wins." Bailey had the only goal through 40 minutes of play, beating Anderson with a snap shot from the face-off circle 17 minutes into the first period. "We played a really solid game five-on-five and the difference was special teams," said Anderson, who finished with 25 saves. "Thats the way this game is and some nights, youre going to generate lots of opportunities on the power play and some nights youre not. That was the difference-maker tonight." The Senators had managed to kill off a 34 second five-on-three disadvantage but were unable to escape the back end of the two penalties unscathed. It wasnt the only opportunity on special teams for the Islanders, either. Cal Clutterbuck was unable to cash in on three short-handed opportunities. Clutterbuck was stopped by Anderson on a short-handed breakaway early in the first period, and later in the period, with an open net to shoot at, he slid the puck through the crease and along the goal-line. Clutterbuck had another short-handed breakaway, this time in the dying seconds of the third period, but his shot sailed over the Ottawa net. Notes: Defenceman Jared Cowen and forwards Bobby Ryan, Jason Spezza and Colin Greening are all injured and did not play Wednesday for the Senators.

The Foxes emphasised their title credentials with a hard-fought 1-0 win courtesy of captain Wes Morgans first goal of the season.Leicester had to overcome a dogged display from Southampton but secured the victory that moved the club to within four wins of a maiden top-flight crown. Wes Morgan celebrates giving Leicester the lead And Ranieri believes his players further answered any doubters by capitalising on Saturdays draw between nearest rivals Tottenham and Liverpool.It was a good answer to the Premier League because now everybody is waiting for us after the Liverpool v Tottenham draw, Ranieri said. We gave a very good answer.I am very calm. We believe in what we are doing, we believe its a magical season and believe next season wont be the same, but then we try.We try to do our best. Other teams can win 3-0, 4-0, we have to fight to win 1-0. We must be focused in our way. Graeme Souness and Peter Schmeichel analyse Danny Simpson blocking Sadio Manes goal-bound shot with his arm The result was Leicesters fourth straight 1-0 win but Ranieri told Sky Sports he was satisfied with another slender victory.It was a fantastic effort because Southampton came here with a lot of confidence after their win against Liverpool, Ranieri said.They closed all the space behind them, with five at the back, three midfielders and with (Graziano) Pelle as the anchor man up front with (Sadio) Mane around him.We started well and wanted to score immediately but it was difficult after they kept possession. Mane had a fantastic chance but (Danny) Simpson made a fantastic save. We scored a goal and had another one or two chances to close the match but 1-0 was OK, we got a clean sheet and three points so step by step it was good. Southampton manager Ronald Koeman felt his side should have had two penalties against Leicester Ronald Koeman was aggrieved his side were denied a penalty on two occasions at the King Power Stadium, the first of which saw Simpson deny Manes goal-bound effort with his arm shortly before Morgans 38th-minute winner. Derek Sanderson Jersey. Asked whether he thought Simpson was lucky to escape punishment, Ranieri added: The ball was very close to Simpson while he was running.If it doesnt touch his arm then it would have touched his flank. It is not as though his arm was far from the body, it was very close.Southampton were unable to find a way through the Leicester defence as the Foxes held on for a win that left them on the brink of a most unlikely title success - but Ranieri sounded a final note of caution.. Leicester captain Wes Morgan gives his thoughts after scoring the only goal of the game against Southampton I enjoy it a lot when we keep clean sheets, I am very happy, he said. I enjoy every minute because we are dreaming.It is important for us to make a good performance because if we do, and win the match, we will be happier. It is important for us to take things step by step and focus on the next match.It is important for us to remain calm, to maintain our feet on the ground, train well and then concentrate during the match.
