Description: Islanders goalie Anders Nilsson made 36 saves in a 3-2 overtime win at Winnipeg on Tuesday.
Insight: The 23-year-old Nilsson has started the last two games after Evgeni Nabokov was shelled for five goals in 40 minutes Saturday. The Islanders are playing for the future so Nilsson may see the majority of the starts down the stretch, but New York's defense isn't very good and Nilsson's AHL stats were unimpressive the last two seasons.

Description: Islanders goalie Anders Nilsson will get his third straight start Thursday at St. Louis.
Insight: Kevin Poulin was a disaster after taking over for the injured Evgeni Nabokov, so Nilsson is getting his shot. Fantasy owners should avoid this situation.

Description: Islanders goalie Anders Nilsson will start for the first time this season Saturday against the Capitals.
Insight: Kevin Poulin has allowed at least three goals in each of his last seven games, so Nilsson could earn a greater share of the starts going forward if he has a good performance Saturday.
