The Islanders scored three times during a six-minute span in the first period tonight, and that's all they would need to get past the Red Wings. They got out shot 11-2 in the second period but bounced back for a strong third, outshooting Detroit 10-6 in the final period.
Evgeni Nabokov earned his first shutout since March 24th, stopping all 23 shots he faced.
Each of the Islanders three goals came from three different lines, and nine different players tallied points on the night. Kyle Okposo, Michael Grabner and Casey Cizikas were the goal scorers.
