Flyers Vs. Islanders Final Score: Evgeni Nabokov Stonewalls Flyers In Shutout Loss

The Philadelphia Flyers out-shot the New York Islanders 45-18 on the night, but Evgeni Nabokov was simply unstoppable in net. The veteran goaltender recorded his third shutout of the season, turning back Daniel Briere and Wayne Simmonds during the shootout to secure a 1-0 win for the Islanders.

Ilya Bryzgalov was equally stout in net through three periods and overtime, albeit against a lesser onslaught. He was beat by a Frans Nielsen backhander on the Islanders' first shootout attempt and John Tavares found the top right corner of the net on the second to secure the win.

The Flyers are just 1-3-1 over their last five games, though on a night like Tuesday it's tough to say they left anything on the ice. The schedule doesn't get much easier with the Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Rangers and Detroit Red Wings all on deck.
