3 teams have contacted Nabokov, but how interested will they be? Carlyle gets 1 year extension … Vinny practices

  • Bob McKenzie via twitter: McKenzie doesn’t think that the Washington Capitals will have interest in Evgeni Nabokov as they seem committed to Varlamov and Neurirth. McKenzie thinks that Tampa Bay may have an interest in Nabokov, but they could also call up Cedrick Desjardins or trade for Dwayne Roloson if he becomes available. McKenzie adds there may not be any other teams interested in a goalie, or are in a position to sign one.
  • Daren Millard via twitter: Nabokov’s agent, Don Meehan was on Hockey Central @ Noon, and told Kypreos and MacLean that they have spoken with 3 teams already, and the Lightning were one of them.
  • Craig Custance via twitter: Vinny Lecavalier taking part in his first practice (and doing push-ups) since having surgery on his hand.
  • Will DePaoli via twitter: Brian Boucher and Marc Andre Fleury will be between the pipes in tonight’s Flyers-Penguins game.
  • Andy Strickland via twitter: Blues defenseman Alex Pietrangelo will not play against the Red Wings on Thursday as he’s out with an upper body injury from a Rick Nash hit 2 games ago.
