NHL: New York Islanders 1, Washington 0

Feb. 4, 2014 at 10:31 PM   |   Comments

WASHINGTON, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Andrew MacDonald scored the game's only goal and Evgeni Nabokov got the shutout Tuesday in the New York Islanders' 1-0 win over Washington.

MacDonald tallied early in the third period when his slap shot off a feed from Brock Nelson found its way through traffic and past Michal Neuvirth.

Nabokov turned aside all 22 Capitals shots en route to his second shutout of the season as the Islanders ended a five-game skid.

Neuvirth finished with 27 stops for the Capitals, losers of three in four games.
