WASHINGTON, Jan. 17 (UPI) -- Evgeni Nabokov notched a 17-save shutout and PA Parenteau scored twice Tuesday in the New York Islanders' 3-0 win over Washington.

Nabokov was busiest in the third period, making seven saves while improving to 10-1-0 in his career against the Capitals, all with the San Jose Sharks.

John Tavares scored on a first-period power play and Parenteau made it 2-0 New York 6 minutes into the middle frame after Frans Nielsen picked up a Washington turnover and fed him in the right circle for a one-timer.

Parenteau added a third-period goal for the Islanders, who beat the Capitals for only the second time in 14 meetings.

Tomas Vokoun turned aside 25-of-28 shots as Washington saw its seven-game home winning streak snapped.
