Evgeni Nabokov made 45 saves and Frans Nielsen and John Tavares scored on Ilya Bryzgalov in a shootout, helping the New York Islanders beat the Philadelphia Flyers 1-0 on Tuesday night.

Nabokov was sensational, turning aside every shot he faced — including two in the shootout.

The last-place Islanders are 6-1-2 in their last nine games and 11-5-2 in their past 18.

Coming off losses to New Jersey and the New York Rangers last weekend, the Flyers hoped to rebound against a team they used to dominate. But they couldn’t get one past Nabokov.

Nielsen scored on the first shot in the shootout. After Nabokov stopped Danny Briere, Tavares fired one past Bryzgalov. Nabokov then stuffed Wayne Simmonds to end it.
