Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Evgeni Nabokov stopped all 23 shots he faced and received three first-period goals of support in the New York Islanders' 3-0 victory over the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena.
Nabokov made early scores by Kyle Okposo, Michael Grabner and Casey Cizikas hold up in notching his first shutout of the season and leading the Islanders to only their third win in their past 17 games.
Petr Mrazek came up with just 16 saves in the loss, the injury-plagued Red Wings' seventh in nine outings and sixth in the last seven at home.
