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.
It was kind of touching. I didn't know really what to expect. I'm very appreciative and thankful for the people that supported me in my time here ... as I said, we'll move back to the area at some point in our life.
