Post Game: Okposos 2nd Period Goal Leads To Shutout Win Over the Devils!!

On Sunday afternoon, behind Anders Nilsson our Islanders defeated the New Jersey Devils by a score of 1-0 in their first of three games this week. Here are some of my notes from game one:
-Congrats to Anders Nilsson on his first NHL win. For a first NHL win, cant get much better then shutting out Marty Brodeur. After this outing it will be interesting to see when Cappy gives him the nod again.
-Very solid defensive game from the team! This was like the tale of two starts for Nilsson. His first start they were like traffic cones in front of him and they were actually pretty solid in front of him.

-Nice seeing Okposo get on the board! Hopefully this continues for him as the season winds down.
Overall, huge win for our Islanders in game one of this three game "series" with the Devils this week.
Next Game: Tonight @ NJD 7PM
