UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -New York Islanders coach Ted Nolan missed the first period of Monday's game against the San Jose Sharks because of what the team called a "personal matter."

No other details were immediately available, but Nolan came out of the tunnel with his team for the start of the second period. He patted players on the back after taking his usual position behind New York's bench.

The game was scoreless through 20 minutes, but San Jose took a 1-0 lead just 2:35 into the second on Marcel Goc's fifth goal this season.
