The Lightning got 28 saves from Marc Denis.
Tampa Bay is still winless on the road (0-6-0), and have allowed 28 goals away from home.
Mike Sillinger, who played in his 1,000th NHL game, had an assist for the Islanders.
DiPietro made the biggest save of the game nine minutes into the game when he gloved a rising wrist shot from in close by Jan Hlavac.
Denis didn't fare as well on Guerin's slap shot from the top of the left circle with 6:31 left in the first period.
The puck went right between the goalie's pads for Guerin's fifth goal this season.
