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.

As a result, one of the NHL’s most entertaining, high-octane teams has been buried...

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]
