Frans Nielsen...an NHL first?

Frans Nielsen of the Islanders just scored in the shootout against the Leafs. He has 0 NHL goals just playing a handful of games. Has any other NHLers scored a shootout goal before an official NHL goal?

DiPietro was the reason the Isles got any points.

I think Nielsen is the first by the way.

He also would be the first Danish player to score a shootout goal...if that means anything.

DiPietro is a beast.

Battle of the goalie.

Raycroft wasn't a factor in the second half at all.

I'm not sure if that's ever been done, but Frans has some sweet hands and that's one of the good things about shootouts, sometimes lesser known players can prove themselves in practice and then help steal a huge point for their team. Congrats to Nielsen.

Raycroft made some spectacular saves as well

That save he made in the first was unbelievable. He was generally good after that, he just didn't have to face many shots until OT. DiPietro was a wall...I think there are a few highlight reel saves from both ends in that game.

Raycroft was great in the first period and in overtime, but the simple fact of the matter is that the Isles were outshot 16-1 in the third. DiPietro was astounding, and it bodes well for the Isles that our goalie can steal 2 points in a game where the rest of the team played it's worst.

Dipietro stole that game for the Islanders. That move by NYI was risky...on one hand, put out a player nobody has really seen/heard of and if he scores...nice move...on the other hand, if he doesn't score...

You gotta think down the stretch it might be wise for teams to keep a shootout wiz on the bench all game in the case of a shootout. That extra point could be huge for a team racing to make the playoffs. Does anyone remember the name of that American guy who plays in Europe who has an unstoppable move? A few years ago the Americans had him on their team for the World Championships specifically for that purpose, and if memory serves he scored a shootout winner.

Hear you on that one. Nolan would have looked like an arse if it didn't work. I don't give points for trying stuff like that unless it works out.

Yep, I think it was Dipietro's best game this season (at least from those that I've watched). I think he had 2 or 3 almost impossible saves. Raycroft was saved by Kaberle in OT

Early on he certainly did.

In the second half of the game, they could have had Webster in net and it still would have gone to a shootout.

Who cares if Nielson hadn't scored before. That nice move should tell the Isles that he will score soon!

DiPietro's save on Kaberle was worth the price of admission if I had been there.

I don't think it was that risky. Are shootlout lineup is usually Satan, Kozlov and ?. By putting Nielsen first there was 0 pressure on him to perform and if he didn't score it would be no different then anybody else who shoots besides the other 2 guys.

I believe Ryan Shannon scored a shootout goal early this season before scoring in regulation time. I may be wrong, though.

He still the first Dane to do it I believe.

Ahh thanks, it was driving me nuts. But yeah, have a guy similar to Roach on the bench specifically for the purpose of the shootout, and it could net you a few extra points down the stretch, and that could be the difference.

It wasn't risky - it was smart. You can be the worst shooter on the planet, but if no goalie has ever even HEARD of you, then he has no idea what you're going to do and you have a huge advantage.

A huge advantage aside from the whole being the worst shooter on the plante thing at least.

I've enjoyed watching NYI games this season, and if Ricky D can play like another 12-13 seasons, the front office may not look all that dumb after all.

If I remember correctly, Roach had 3 penaltyshots in the tournament and scored on all three. Different move everytime and equally impressive. It was very suprising because on ice he looked like any other #5-6 D with average or below average puckhandling skills.
