Islanders' turnaround a team effort

Frans Nielsen pinpointed one shift: The opening shift of the second period at Madison Square Garden on Valentine's Day. The Isles trailed the Rangers 2-0 after one and were in the midst of a five-game losing streak that threatened to sink the season before it was barely one-quarter of the way done.

But Jack Capuano tossed together a crash line of Casey Cizikas, Colin McDonald and Matt Martin to open the second, and they produced a goal by McDonald, 29 seconds in. The Isles won that game in a shootout.

"Who knows,'' Nielsen said after that game. "Maybe that's the shift that turns our season around.''
