Future goaltending options for the New York Islanders

It’s no secret the goaltending for the Islanders this season has been awful. That’s not a suggestion or an opinion, but a fact of the game. The Isles are dead last in the league in cumulative (team) save percentage, a product of relying on two goalies who rank 39th and 44th, respectively, in the stat that matters most for their position. That’s out of 45, by the way. For Islanders...

The goaltending woes of the New York Islanders

To say the New York Islanders have some goaltending issues right now is to say John Spano had a few character foibles in 1996. Spano, you might recall, was the snake behind the greatest fraud in sports history, while the Islanders, you must know, can’t seem to keep a beach ball out of a mouse hole. As a result, one of the NHL’s most entertaining, high-octane teams has been buried...

Evgeni Nabokov trips on puck in warmups, does snow angel

New York Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov tripped on a puck in warmups and had a perfect reaction to it.  Rather than get upset or make it look like nothing happened, Nabokov embraced it and did a snow angel; clearly amusing everyone that saw it. [@GoldandorSmith]
