Recap: NY Islanders vs. Philadelphia

Uniondale, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Frans Nielsen's shootout goal led the New York Islanders to a 1-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers in a goaltenders duel on Monday.

Philly's Steve Mason made a season-high 46 saves through regulation and overtime, while Jaroslav Halak stopped 21 shots.

Nielsen put the first puck past either goaltender with New York's second chance, as he buried a wrister past Mason.

Claude Giroux then beat Halak back to the forehand and his low shot appeared to have an open path to the net, but Halak slammed the glove arm down and kept it out.

Jonathan Tavares then sealed the victory as he went back and forth before lifting a backhand into the right corner of the net.

"We did a good job of getting pucks on the net but you're going to have those nights where their goalie doesn't make any mistakes," said Tavares. "Luckily our guy was just as strong and we were able to get a few in the shootout."

Both goaltenders were given a shutout in the game, as Mason notched his first of the year and 24th of his career, while Halak nabbed his third of the season and 33rd of his career.

"We had a good scout on them and knew what to expect," said Mason. "They were as good as advertised."

Mason made 27 saves through the first two periods, before turning aside 16 in the third and three in overtime, including a beautiful stop of Johnny Boychuk down low just over a minute into the extra session.

Halak needed to stop just 16 shots in the first two frames, then made five in the final 25 minutes to force the shootout.
