Newark, NJ (Sports Network) - Evgeni Nabokov made 24 saves to backstop the
postseason hopeful New York Islanders to a critical 3-1 win over the New
Jersey Devils at Prudential Center.
The Islanders remained tied with the New York Rangers for the eighth and final
playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, but closed within two points of
seventh-place New Jersey with their fourth win in five games.
Martin Brodeur stopped 18 shots for a Devils club that has dropped four
straight. The three previous setbacks had come after regulation.
