Islanders Vs. Capitals Finals Score: New York Blanks Washington, 3-0

The New York Islanders improved to 17-21-6 on the season after shutting out the Washington Capitals, 3-0, on Tuesday night. The win was the second dominating win over a quality opponent in a week, with the Detroit Red Wings falling 5-1 to the Isles just seven days earlier.

Like that game against the Wings, the Islanders did a great job keeping of keeping their goaltender clean. Evgeni Nabokov only had to contend with 17 shots on goal on the night, marking the sixth time in the last seven games that New York held its opponent under 30 shots for the game.

The Islanders scored twice off the powerplay, the first time off a John Tavares tip-in during the first period, the second time on a 14-foot wrister from P.A. Parenteau for his second goal of the night. Parenteau's goals were his eighth and ninth on the season. Tavares now has 17 tallies on the year.
