Coach Barry Trotz didn’t immediately say if Lehner would be available Saturday, saying “we’ll see where he is.”If Lehner cannot go, then Thomas Griess would likely get the nod against his former team.

Valterri Filppula led the way with two goals and an assist, while Scott Mayfield set a career best with three assists.“The biggest thing is winning. That’s really all I care about. It doesn’t matter how many points I have,” Mayfield said.Mayfield has a goal and four assists through four games. He had five goals and 17 assists in 83 games from 2013 through last season. His only during this campaign came against the Sharks.While it’s still early, other veteran Islanders are overachieving.Filppula has four goals in six game after notching 11 in 81 contests with the Philadelphia Flyers last season. Casey Czikas has goals each of his last two games, giving him three in five games. Czikas pro has never scored more than nine goals in a season.“I have to trust everybody can play. I have to trust that everybody can contribute. If we can do that, then we’re going to be a hard team to play against,” Trotz said.The Islanders have outscored the Sharks, 12-4, while winning each of the last three meetings. New York is also looking to win two straight in northern California for the first time since Dec. 15, 1998, and Jan. 29, 2000. UNIONDALE Authentic Pat Tillman Jersey
