The Columbus Blue Jackets ended Anders Nilsson's personal three-game winning streak in beating the New York Islanders 4-0 on Sunday.

Nilsson is now 6-6-2 with a .891 save percentage and 3.22 GAA on the season. It's difficult to imagine Nilsson being a big part of the Isles' future, although he has a chance at least fighting for backup spot next season.

This makes sense as Evgeni Nabokov played on Saturday. Nilsson is 6-5-2 with a 3.17 GAA and a .892 save percentage but is coming off a big win on Wednesday as he stopped 35 of 36 shots in a 2-1 win over Ottawa.

Nilsson turned aside 35 of the 36 shots he faced in the victory to earn himself a third consecutive win. His record is a much-improved 6-5-2, while his GAA is 3.17 and his save percentage is .892. His numbers might not look all that great, but anyone who's been riding him during the fantasy playoffs is happy with the production they have received.

Mar 25 - 12:20 PM

Islanders goaltender Anders Nilsson struggled mightily in a 6-0 blowout loss to Minnesota on Tuesday.

Nilsson has been assigned to unenviable task of playing goal for an Islanders club that appears to have given up on their season now that superstar John Tavares has been sidelined with an injury. Nilsson allowed six goals on 22 shots in the defeat, which drops his record to 3-5-2. His GAA is a rather putrid 3.50 while his save percentage is equally scary at .882.
