UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- New York Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov left the game Monday against the Dallas Stars with 7:06 left in the first period due to a lower-body injury. He did not return and was placed on injured reserve after New York's 7-3 victory.

Nabokov appeared to hurt his right side after sprawling to make a save with 8:40 remaining. He stayed down for a while and received assistance from the trainer, but he opted to stay in the game.

However, Nabokov waived to the bench at a stoppage in play with 7:06 left and immediately went to the dressing room. Kevin Poulin replaced Nabokov, who made seven saves on eight shots.


Canucks' Luongo not seriously hurt: report

Monday, 01.06.2014 / 5:14 PM / News


Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo may have escaped serious injury Saturday night against the Los Angeles Kings, according to a report by TSN's James Duthie.

Duthie reported early indications are the ankle injury Luongo sustained is not serious. He underwent an MRI on Monday and was seen walking without a limp.

The Canucks did recall goaltender Joacim Eriksson from the American Hockey League on Monday. When Luongo was unable to dress Sunday, they had to sign 43-year-old Rob Laurie to back up Eddie Lack against the Anaheim Ducks.

Luongo, who had missed three games with a groin injury, stopped 46 shots in a 3-1 loss to the Kings. He was crashed into by forward Dustin Brown on the game-tying goal in the third period but finished out the game.


Wild's Koivu has ankle surgery, out one month

Monday, 01.06.2014 / 3:43 PM / News

Minnesota Wild captain Mikko Koivu had ankle surgery, the team announced Monday, and is expected to miss a month.

Koivu sustained a broken ankle during a game Saturday against the Washington Capitals, though he did finish the game. This injury puts his ability to play for Finland in the 2014 Sochi Olympics in jeopardy. Koivu was a favorite to be named captain for his country.

It is also a huge blow for the reeling Wild, who have stumbled since a 13-4-4 start. Part of the issue has been the team's declining possession numbers, and another problem has been injuries, most recently an illness keeping surprising star goaltender Josh Harding out of the lineup.

ANAHEIM -- Roberto Luongo is day-to-day after he was injured Saturday night, Vancouver Canucks coach John Tortorella said Sunday.

Luongo did not serve as backup to Eddie Lack in a 4-3 loss to the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center and Vancouver signed Rob Laurie to a professional tryout contract to backup Lack, who made 45 saves.

Luongo was struck high by the leg of Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown in the third period Saturday when Brown crashed the net to score. Luongo stayed down for several moments after the hit, but stayed in the game.

Vancouver general manager Mike Gillis told reporters that it could be more than a day-to-day issue with Luongo. Lack said he was prepared to assume the No.1 role long-term.
