It was a Happy Valentine's Day for Dan Girardi this past February 14th when he scored his first goal of the season. Girardi drills this one-timer from the right circle past Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov to open the scoring just 3:36 into the contest. Afetr Rick Nash and Carl Hagelin do most of the work behind the Isles net, Girardi senses an opportunity, drifts to the cricle from his right-point position, and is in a perfect spot to one-time Hagelin's pass into the back of the cage. Both of Girardi's regular-season goals in 2013 were scored against the Islanders and against their No. 1 goalie, Nabokov.
