MONTREAL -- It was all about energy as the youthful New York Islanders skated rings around the Montreal Canadiens. Mike Smith Jersey . Ryan Strome and Brock Nelson scored power-play goals late in the second period and Evgeni Nabokov made 19 saves for the shutout as the Islanders downed the listless Canadiens 2-0 on Thursday night. "We outworked them," said the Islanders Matt Martin. "They played (Wednesday) night and we were a little fresher than them and we had some young legs in the lineup. "We tracked hard." The loss, combined with Tampa Bays 4-2 win over Philadelphia, compromised the Canadiens (45-28-8) chances of starting the playoffs on home ice. Montreal is second in the Atlantic Division with 98 points and one game left to play while the Lightning has 97 points with two games left in the regular season. The Canadiens will need to win their final regular season game Saturday night at home against the New York Rangers and hope the Lightning lose either Friday night against Columbus or Sunday against Washington. "You want home ice, you want to go into the playoffs feeling good about your game, and weve got Saturday night to do that," said Montreal captain Brian Gionta. The Canadiens felt anything but good about their play against the Islanders (32-37-11), who posted their first regulation time win in four games but improved to 7-2-2 in their last 11. Nabokov got his fourth shutout of the season. "Its no fun losing at this time, but sometimes, youre just not good enough," said Thomas Vanek, who was traded to Montreal by the Islanders last month. "You have to give them credit, and at the same time, we sucked. "The coaches prepared us and -- I dont know if it was tired legs or we were mentally not there or both, but overall they kept skating hard and putting pressure on us and we didnt have a push back." The Canadiens also got the bad news that second line winger Alex Galchenyk, who appeared to injure his right knee in Wednesdays 3-2 overtime loss in Chicago, will miss the first round of playoffs with a lower body injury. Montreal came out flat and never got any momentum as they were outshot 30-19. New York held a 9-2 shot advantage early in the opening period but couldnt beat Carey Price, even when the Montreal goaltender wandered halfway up the left boards and then misplayed the puck. But Canadiens defenceman Douglas Murray, who returned from a three game suspension, was ejected at 10:52 of the second period for a check from behind on Johan Sundstrom. The Islanders rookie turned around just as the Canadiens defenceman hit him at the side of the net into the end boards. Sundstrom was injured and was taken to hospital. New York coach Jack Capuano said Sundstrom would likely be kept in hospital for observation and not travel with the team back to New York. "It was a tough one," said Capuano. "(Murray) is not that type of player. "Its one hed probably like to have back. Hopefully our guy will be all right." The Islanders used the ensuing power play to open the scoring, as Strome put a shot past Price through a Casey Cizikas screen from the right circle at 15:07. With Vanek off for high-sticking, Nelson whipped a shot under the cross bar from close range at 19:40. Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said only Prices solid goaltending kept the score close. "It was bad performance fro our team," said Therrien. "Every aspect of our game wasnt sharp." Murray drew his first career suspension for an elbow to the head of Tampa Bays Michael Kostka on April 1. Notes: Price and defencemen Andrei Markov and Alexei Elemin, who were given a game off Wednesday in Chicago, were back in the lineup. Forward Lars Eller missed a second game with a flu. . . after the game, the Canadiens returned defenceman Nathan Beaulieu to AHL Hamilton.

Roark (7-5) allowed four runs on 10 hits and one walk over six innings in a 7-2 setback in front of several friends and family members, as the Cubs snapped his personal streak of four consecutive victories on Friday. AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Phil Mickelson will be watching the final two rounds of the Masters from home for the first time in 17 years. And its no mystery why. "Its tough to overcome those big numbers," Mickelson said Friday after a 1-over 73. Mickelson made two triple bogeys at Augusta National two years ago and nearly won another green jacket. After making two of them in consecutive days this year he missed the cut for only the second time. He was at 5-over 149. Mickelson could have fired up a private jet to head home after he signed his card, except that the Masters changed its cut policy this year. The top 50 and ties -- up from the top 44 -- made the cut. "Its right on the bubble," he said before the cut was decided. "I dont want to be looking for the leaderboard, but Im always fighting to make the weekend, it seems like." Lefty came up short this time. Mickelson was chipping from about 30 feet away on No. 7 in the opening round when it rolled off the green and led to a triple bogey. And then on Friday, watching him play the par-3 12th hole was like watching a tennis match. His tee shot cleared Raes Creek -- typically the first big concern -- and found the front bunker. His next shot sailed over the green and fell into the side of the back bunker. From there, he blasted through the green and back into the same bunker where his troubles began. He got that out to about 18 feet and two-putted for a triple bogey. Throw in that double boogey on the par-5 15th in the opening round when his wedge spun back off the green and into the water, and its clear why Mickelsons bid to join Tiger Woods and Arnold Palmer with a fourth Masters title dissolved rather quickly. Curtis Glencross Jersey. "What happened at 12 was I hit in the front bunker, and there was no sand where I was at," Mickelson said. "I caught the liner of the bunker and bladed it across the green and the same thing happened on the other side. It went back and forth, three bunkers, before I finally got it to stay on grass." Mickelson, who withdrew after two rounds at Torrey Pines because of a sore back, pulled out on the weekend of the Texas Open with a pulled muscle in his oblique. But he said injuries were not the problem this week. What concerned Mickelson was not playing enough going into the Masters. He said he was worried that he might not be sharp, and he was right. "Thats what Ive been nervous about is having a hole like 7 (Thursday), a hole like 12 today," Mickelson said. "... Instead of one sliding, two or three are going away. Thats the kind of stuff when youre playing tournament golf and youre mentally sharp you dont do." Mickelson last missed the cut at Augusta in 1997, the year Woods won by a record 12 shots. He said hell likely watch the rest if tournament on television. "Its an exciting tournament. I probably will," Mickelson said. "Kind of be my punishment."
