Nabokov Has To Be Better

from Cam Inman at the Mercury News,

You wonder on every goal he allows. You wonder on every save he makes. You wonder on every breath Evgeni Nabokov takes.

OK, that last line is too much like a song lyric. But Nabokov’s lasting legacy with the Sharks is being defined right here in these Western Conference finals.

How many more games will he play in that menacing Sharks helmet? How will his final game end this season, in heroic fashion with a Stanley Cup or in a familiar sad handshake at the end of a receiving line?

Nabokov, whose contract is up at season’s end, has had a strong postseason. It needs to be stronger.
