Last night, during the first period Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov had to leave with a lower body injury.
The injury was sustained after Nabokov went down to make a save and had issues getting back up. He attempted to say in but was eventually pulled in favor of Kevin Poulin.
Before the game ended last night Nabokov was already put on IR and Anders Nilsson was recalled from Bridgeport on an emergency basis. It is unclear as of now how much time Nabokov is expected to miss.
