Description: Islanders netminder Evgeni Nabokov made 19 saves in a shutout of the Canadiens Thursday night.
Insight: Nabokov has been splitting starts with 24-year-old Anders Nilsson since the beginning of March and is trying to show he still has something left. He'll be a free agent after the season.
 
3/23/2014 4:35:00 PM
Description: Islanders netminder Evgeni Nabokov was a perfect 41-for-41 on save opportunities Sunday against the Blue Jackets.
Insight: It's Nabokov's third shutout of the season. Before Sunday's outing, the veteran had allowed three or more goals in seven consecutive appearances.
 
Hot2/4/2014 10:23:00 PM
Description: Islanders goaltender Evgeni Nabokov has blocked 87 of the 92 shots (.946 SV%) he's faced in three starts since returning from a quad injury.
Insight: Nabokov shut out the Washington Capitals with 22 saves Tuesday to bring his record to 10-10-5. He has two shutouts this season.
 
1/29/2014 5:52:00 PM
Description: Islanders goaltender Evgeni Nabokov will start for the first time since Jan. 6 Wednesday against the Rangers at Yankee Stadium.
Insight: Nabokov played in relief Monday against Boston after missing three weeks due to a quadriceps injury. He's 9-8-5 with a 2.85 GAA and .905 SV% this season.
 
1/28/2014 10:15:00 AM
Description: Islanders goaltender Evgeni Nabokov was activated Monday, servering as backup and even played 12 minutes.
Insight: Nabokov is 9-8-5 with a 2.88 GAA and .905 SV% and should resume his starting role as neither Kevin Poulin or Anders Nilsson did enough to take the spot away from him.
 
1/20/2014 9:39:00 AM
Description: Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov skated with the team Sunday.
Insight: Nabokov is eligible to come off the injured reserve whenever he is ready - likely in about a week. He's 9-8-5 with a 2.88 GAA and .905 SV% and should resume his starting role when healthy as neither Kevin Poulin or Anders Nilsson did enough to take the spot away from him.
 
1/7/2014 6:03:00 PM
Description: Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov was placed on injured reserve with a lower-body injury after New York's win over Dallas Monday. SOURCE: nhl.com
Insight: Nabokov left Monday's game in the first period with the injury. The veteran missed a month from mid-November to mid-December with a groin injury, and this may be related. He had gone 4-3-2 with a .926 SV% in nine games since returning to the lineup. Kevin Poulin will start Tuesday and beyond, but he struggled during Nabokov's first absence and is not a trustworthy fantasy option.
 
1/6/2014 7:50:00 PM
Description: Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov left Monday's game in the first period with an injury.
Insight: No word on what the injury is. Nabokov missed a month from mid-November to mid-December with a groin injury and had gone 4-3-2 with a .926 SV% in nine games since returning to the lineup.
 
12/14/2013 9:55:00 PM
Description: Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov took a 1-0 overtime loss in his return to the lineup Saturday against Montreal.
Insight: Nabokov missed more than a month due to a groin injury and replacement Kevin Poulin struggled mightily. The 38-year-old entered Saturday's game with an ugly 3.30 GAA, so fantasy owners should avoid him for now.
 
12/12/2013 7:19:00 PM
Description: Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov is back after missing almost a month with a groin injury. SOURCE: Arthur Staple, Newsday
Insight: He's not going to start Thursday's game in Phoenix but he could see action if Kevin Poulin struggles or gets injured. We wouldn't recommend using either player for fantasy purposes.
 
11/18/2013 9:45:00 PM
Description: The Islanders placed goalie Evgeni Nabokov on injured reserve on Monday. SOURCE: NHL.com
Insight: He's dealing with a painful groin injury. Kevin Poulin will have to fill in while he's out.
 
11/17/2013 5:53:00 PM
Description: According to Arthur Staple of Newsday, Evgeni Nabokov's groin injury could keep him out four weeks or more.
Insight: Nabokov has struggled this season and suffered the injury Saturday. Kevin Poulin will take over the starting job while Anders Nilsson is expected to be called up to back him up.
 
11/16/2013 7:24:00 PM
Description: Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov left Saturday's game after five minutes of play due to an apparent groin injury, according to Renaud Lavoie of journaldemontreal.com.
Insight: Nabokov came in with an ugly 3.24 GAA in his first 13 starts and had not started since Nov. 9. Kevin Poulin came on against Detroit Saturday.
 
10/25/2013 9:57:00 PM
Description: Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov faced 42 SOG Friday against the Penguins but blocked 39 of them in a 4-3 win.
Insight: Nabokov came in having allowed nine goals on 56 shots the previous two games. He's now 4-2-3 with a 2.82 GAA and a .908 SV%.
 
Hot10/8/2013 9:46:00 PM
Description: Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov had his best start of the season Tuesday, stopping 33 of 34 shots in a 6-1 win over Phoenix.
Insight: After the Isles went to a shootout in each of the first two games, they picked up an easy win Tuesday for their veteran netminder. Nabokov is 2-0-1 with a 1.89 GAA so far.
 
Hot4/18/2013 6:18:00 PM
Description: Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov will start Thursday against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Insight: Nabokov has been one of the hottest goaltenders in the NHL since late March and has won eight of his last 11 starts. He is 5-0-2 with a 1.26 GAA and .948 SV% in April.
 
Hot4/11/2013 10:05:00 PM
Description: Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov outdueled Bruins netminder Tuukka Rask with 30 saves on 31 shots in a 2-1 win Thursday night at Boston.
Insight: Nabokov has been on fire since shutting out Florida on March 24, and he is a big reason why the Isles are making a playoff push. Over his last nine starts, he is 7-1-1 with a 1.43 GAA and a .945 SV%.
 
3/24/2013 10:41:00 PM
Description: Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov blanked Florida Sunday for his third shutout of the season.
Insight: He racked up 26 saves in the victory. Prior to Sunday, Nabokov had given up a combined 10 goals over his previous three outings. Nabokov's inconsistency makes him a tough player to own in fantasy.
 
3/21/2013 5:37:00 PM
Description: Islanders netminder Evgeni Nabokov will get the night off Thursday while Kevin Poulin gets the start in net.
Insight: Nabokov has to deal with one of the NHL's worst defenses so he has been hit-or-miss this season (13-9-3, 2.93 GAA, 2 SO). Poulin is 0-1 with a 3.03 GAA in two appearances.
 
3/7/2013 9:40:00 PM
Description: Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov made 35 saves in 61 minutes Thursday against the Rangers but he didn't get much offensive support in a 2-1 overtime loss.
Insight: Nabokov hasn't had a great season -- he came into Thursday's game with a .902 SV% and 2.97 GAA -- but it isn't entirely his fault. New York has one of the NHL's worst defenses with 64 even-strength goals against coming into Thursday.
