San Jose Sharks
Islanders general manager Garth Snow said Wednesday the team did everything the right way in its attempted acquisition of Russian goalie Evgeni Nabokov.
The Islanders have suspended goalie Evgeni Nabokov for not reporting to the team after being claimed off waivers from the Red Wings last week.
Dan Boyle scored the tying goal on a second-period power play and added the shootout clincher in the San Jose Sharks’ 2-1 victory over the New York Islanders on Thursday night.
After losing three of four, the San Jose Sharks are looking to get back on track. Joe Thornton’s return from suspension should help, as should facing the New York Islanders.
The Devils finished the month of October with a record of 3-8-1. The seven points are the third-lowest total ever in the season’s opening month since the club moved to New Jersey back in 1982.
The slumping Devils disclosed the injury on Thursday, but did not say how long Corrente would be sidelined.
The New Jersey Devils have high-priced talent and one of the best goaltenders in history. That hasn’t translated into them looking like an Eastern Conference contender yet.
The Devils will look to escape the clouds of their 2-6-1 start with three games in sunny California as they take on the Sharks, Ducks and Kings.
