Islanders get first shutout in Montreal
MONTREAL -- Hard work paid off for a rookie-laden New York Islanders lineup.
Facing an established and playoff-bound group in the Montreal Canadiens, the young Islanders made the most of their opportunities in a 2-0 win Thursday night at Bell Centre.
Centers Ryan Strome and Brock Nelson, both first-year NHL players, scored for New York, which saw its fresh faces ready for any mistake Montreal offered up.
