DETROIT, Dec. 23 (UPI) -- Evgeni Nabokov recorded a 23-save shutout Monday and the New York Islanders blanked slumping Detroit 3-0.

Kyle Okposo, Michael Grabner and Casey Cizikas each netted an early score for the Islanders.

The Red Wings, meanwhile, fell for sixth time in seven home games.

Petr Mrazek stopped 16-of-19 shots for Detroit.
