Found March 10, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
New York Islanders goaltender Anders Nilsson will start Saturday's game against the Atlantic Division rival New Jersey Devils, coach Jack Capuano said. Nilsson certainly fared well in his last start - turning aside all 24 shots he faced to record both his first win and shutout against the Devils on Sunday. The Swede, who will turn 22 on March 19, is 1-1-0 with a 3.01 goals-against average. Saturday's tilt will be his third start and fourth NHL appearance.
