The Islanders Informer

Last night, in a 2-0 loss to the Calgary Flames, Evgeni Nabokov played in his first game with the New York Islanders. Nabokov played 40 minutes and overall looked steady. It is expected that Nabokov will be rusty at least in the short-term due to being out of the NHL all of last season. Nabokov has never really been known for handling the puck, but that was one glaring area of weakness last night. There were a number of times when Nabokov misplayed the puck that almost resulted in Flames goals. On a positive note, Nabokov stopped 15 of 16 shots and looked pretty solid in net.
