Afternoon notes involving Nabokov, Blue Jackets, Kovalchuk, Green, Zetterberg, Connolly, Komisarek, Hagman and Starting goalies

  • Chris Botta via twitter: Evgeni Nabokov is dying to leave the Islanders. The Islanders are dying to get down to 2 goalies. His family is still in California.
  • Aaron Portzline via twitter: It’s looking like no further trades are imminent for the Blue Jackets. They are in talks that could lead to further moves. “The fact that GM Scott Howson is in driver’s seat making deals can be seen as an indication that management is still firmly behind him.”
  • Rich Chere via twitter: Devils winger Ilya Kovalchuk won’t play in either game this weekend. Martin Brodeur will start in net tonight, Johan Hedberg will go against Washington. Forward lines: Sykora-Elias-Zubrus; Parise-Henrique-Palmieri; Tedenby-Carter-Clarkson; Zharkov-Mills-Janssen.
  • Dave Molinari via twitter: Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said that Tyler Kennedy won’t be in the lineup tonight, and that Eric Tangradi is in.
  • Lance Hornby via twitter: Leafs defenseman Mike Komisarek is getting x-rays done today on his hand after taking a slash from Jason Arnott. Cody Franson would get back into the lineup if Komisarek is out.
