Nabokov Talks About His Team Russia Exerience

from David Pollak of Working the Corners at the Mercury News,

...Nabokov, as usual, wasn’t ducking questions. He took responsibility — but didn’t want to let himself be defined by one game and at one point noted he was in the nets when Russia won the 2008 World Championships.

Here’s the transcript of our one-on-one conversation:

Q: Do you feel added pressure to show people that’s not who you are as a goalie?

“I don’t think one game makes you this or that – whatever it is, a loss or a win. Your whole career makes you who you are.  You always want to prove that you’re playing well, but games like that happen. What is different this game from what happened to us against Chicago, you know what I mean?
