NHL Hockey Detroit Red Wings vs. New York Islanders

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -

Kevin Poulin stopped all three Detroit skaters in the shootout after coming on in relief, and the New York Islanders outlasted the reeling Red Wings in a 5-4 see-saw matchup Saturday night.

Neither team could hold the lead until Poulin finally shut the door in the tiebreaker, denying Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk and Todd Bertuzzi. The Red Wings had tied the game 4-4 when Datsyuk scored his second of the night with 42.5 seconds left in regulation.

The Red Wings have lost six straight games and five in a row after regulation -- the past three in shootouts.

Frans Nielsen scored the only shootout goal for the Islanders, who had dropped five of six.
