Nabokov Tries To Stay Positive

from the Contra Costa Times,
While the Sharks have charged into the postseason with a memorable surge, one of their most decorated players has been confined to a largely forgotten role. The Sharks have gone 16-3-2 since the trade deadline March 9, but goalie Evgeni Nabokov has played in just four of the games, going 2-2. "It's been pretty tough the last couple weeks," said Nabokov, who owns virtually every career goaltending mark in franchise history. "I just didn't expect that, to be honest with you. But I'm trying to stay positive, which is really tough. But what can you do? You know the team is playing well. There's nothing you can do about it. Just wait for the chance and be ready. That's about it."
