Nelson seals Isles 4-3 SO win over Sabres
Evgeni Nabokov made 19 saves for his fourth shutout this season, and Ryan Strome and Brock Nelson scored power-play goals late in the second period as the New York Islanders topped the Montreal Canadiens 2-0 on Thursday night.
John Tavares scored with 1:24 to go and Brock Nelson added an empty-netter, leading the streaking New York Islanders to a 4-2 victory over the slumping Dallas Stars on Sunday.
The New York Islanders will be without Lubomir Visnovsky for at least a week, as the team placed the veteran defenseman on injured reserve with a concussion retroactive to Oct. 19.
One of the Islanders' top prospects has decided to turn pro.
