EVGENI NABOKOV NEWS

What The? IIHF Eligibility Rules Explained

Ask anyone who follows international hockey: the IIHF’s eligibility rules can be rather confusing. For the average hockey fan, seeing your country using players from a different nation is very rare. It almost seems like a crazy idea. But, as it will be, it happens a lot. In fact, you’ll see it happen a ton with some countries within the top 20, including Kazakhstan and Italy...

Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Day 60

It seems like we’re having more Buffalo-like weather today than Long Island weather. I woke up to my truck basically encased in a block of ice. Maybe that’s the Sabres way of gaining revenge on the Island for their home loss last night. Which leads me to this classic mantra. It doesn’t matter how ugly it is done. A win is a win. Even if two goals were allowed on 10 shots. With...

Bolts Recall Andrei Vasilevskiy from Syracuse, Send Evgeni Nabokov Packing

The Tampa Bay Lightning were in search of a steady hand to back up their new star netminder Ben Bishop and when they signed Evgeni Nabokov to handle the duties it seemed like a good call at a bargain basement price. Really, what could go wrong? Nabby could go wrong and man alive did he go wrong. In 11 games and nine starts this season he posted a record of 3-6-2 to go with a 3.14...

RECAP: Game 30. Time is a flat circle

You can see why the Lightning are so good. What a fun team to watch. Minus Steven Stamkos who was completely invisible. Evgeni Malkin would get murdered if he didn’t show up for a big game by hockey pundits. You have to say the same for the Lightning golden boy. Yikes. Stamkos was no where to found in this one.
