Islanders active Nabokov off injured reserve

The New York Islanders have activated goaltender Evgeni Nabokov off injured reserve.

Nabokov, who hasn't played since Nov. 16 due to a groin injury, will serve as backup to Kevin Poulin when the Islanders play at the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday.

Goalie Anders Nilsson has been sent to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
