Nabokov out with groin injury


The New York Islanders announced Friday that goaltender Evgeni Nabokov will be out indefinitely due to a groin injury.

Nabokov was injured at 7:55 of the first period Thursday's game against the Montreal Canadiens when he slid to make a pad stop on a Yannick Weber shot. Nabokov remained down after making the save, and then was helped to the dressing room by the team's medical staff.

In eight games, Nabokov is 1-5-0 with a 2.83 goals-against average and .918 save percentage.

Rick DiPietro replaced Nabokov on Thursday, and he'll now share time with Al Montoya in Nabokov's absence.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
