The Bulin Bust

from the Arizona Republic,
Former Coyotes goalie Nikolai Khabibulin, whom Phoenix is expected to face tonight in Chicago, has been an expensive bust for the Blackhawks.

Khabibulin enters today's game with a 3-9 record, a league-worst 4.11 goals-against average and a league-worst .843 save percentage.
