Nathan Lawson allowed two goals on 42 shots, but the Islanders were upended 2-1 by the Capitals in overtime Tuesday.

Lawson appeared to be cruising along towards a shutout win until a goal in the final minute of regulation sent the game to overtime where Alex Ovechkin sealed a victory for the Caps. It was a nice performance by the journeyman netminder, but there's a good chance Al Montoya will start the Isles' next game.

Nathan Lawson has been placed on waivers by the Islanders.

Despite recent injuries to Rick DiPietro and Kevin Poulin, Lawson has been unable to grab hold of the starting goaltender position with the Isles, as he has been overtaken by Al Montoya for that role. The goaltender is expected to be sent to the AHL if he is not claimed by another team in order to give the Isles some roster flexibility.

Nathan Lawson allowed five goals on 18 shots before being pulled in the Islanders' 6-3 loss to the Boston Bruins on Thursday night.

Lawson was relieved early in the second period by Al Montoya who made 15 saves off the bench. The Islanders goaltending situation has become a bit of a side-show this season. The team traded away starter Dwayne Roloson, Rick DiPietro (who has a 15-year contract) can't seem to stay healthy, Evgeni Nabokov refuses to play, and Kevin Poulin is hurt as well. That leaves Lawson as the de facto starter, and he has struggled his way to an .879 save percentage and a 4.57 goals-against average. Leave him on the waiver wire.

The Isles take on the Bruins and Lawson, who is 1-3-1 this season, will make his second start since he was injured on Jan. 21 as he suffered an MCL strain. He will look to improve on his 3.86 GAA and .895 save percentage. Adjust your lineup accordingly.
