Frans Nielsen scored his first goal of the playoffs in the New York Islanders' series-losing, 2-1 loss to the Capitals in Washington Monday night.
The Isles disappointed themselves with only 11 shots on goal in this one. The anemic offense paved the way for the Caps to prevail and take the Eastern Conference First Round Series in the maximum seven games. Despite the dearth of offense in the game that mattered most, Nielsen gave the Isles a chance after he took a pass from Thomas Hickey and let go a soft wrist shot that found its way between Washington goalie Braden Holtby's skates to make it 1-1 in the third period. The Caps would win this game, though, on a goal by Evgeny Kuznetsov with 7:18 remaining in regulation time. Apr 27 - 11:09 PM
