Description: Lightning netminder Evgeni Nabokov stopped 29-of-30 shots on goal during Thursday's win versus Carolina.

Description: Lightning netminder Evgeni Nabokov started, but was pulled in the first period, Saturday against Minnesota.
Insight: He let up four goals on only eight shots, before Ben Bishop took over. Bishop was not much better, as he turned away 11 shots on 14 chances. Bishop will remain the starter, moving forward.

Description: Lightning netminder Evgeni Nabokov earned his first win as a member of the team.
Insight: He defeated Calgary 2-1, while stopping 21-of-22 shots on goal. Nabokov is firmly entrenched as the backup behind Ben Bishop, making him an irrelevant fantasy option.

Description: Islanders netminder Evgeni Nabokov made 19 saves in a shutout of the Canadiens Thursday night.
Insight: Nabokov has been splitting starts with 24-year-old Anders Nilsson since the beginning of March and is trying to show he still has something left. He'll be a free agent after the season.

1/28/2014 10:15:00 AM
Description: Islanders goaltender Evgeni Nabokov was activated Monday, servering as backup and even played 12 minutes.
Insight: Nabokov is 9-8-5 with a 2.88 GAA and .905 SV% and should resume his starting role as neither Kevin Poulin or Anders Nilsson did enough to take the spot away from him.

Insight: Nabokov is eligible to come off the injured reserve whenever he is ready - likely in about a week. He's 9-8-5 with a 2.88 GAA and .905 SV% and should resume his starting role when healthy as neither Kevin Poulin or Anders Nilsson did enough to take the spot away from him.

Description: Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov was placed on injured reserve with a lower-body injury after New York's win over Dallas Monday. SOURCE: nhl.com
Insight: Nabokov left Monday's game in the first period with the injury. The veteran missed a month from mid-November to mid-December with a groin injury, and this may be related. He had gone 4-3-2 with a .926 SV% in nine games since returning to the lineup. Kevin Poulin will start Tuesday and beyond, but he struggled during Nabokov's first absence and is not a trustworthy fantasy option.

Description: Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov left Monday's game in the first period with an injury.
Insight: No word on what the injury is. Nabokov missed a month from mid-November to mid-December with a groin injury and had gone 4-3-2 with a .926 SV% in nine games since returning to the lineup.
 
12/14/2013 9:55:00 PM
Description: Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov took a 1-0 overtime loss in his return to the lineup Saturday against Montreal.
Insight: Nabokov missed more than a month due to a groin injury and replacement Kevin Poulin struggled mightily. The 38-year-old entered Saturday's game with an ugly 3.30 GAA, so fantasy owners should avoid him for now.

Description: Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov is back after missing almost a month with a groin injury. SOURCE: Arthur Staple, Newsday
Insight: He's not going to start Thursday's game in Phoenix but he could see action if Kevin Poulin struggles or gets injured. We wouldn't recommend using either player for fantasy purposes.
