Well well well. Look who came back to the Barn last night. It’s our ol’ pal, Evgeni Nabokov! Evgeni made his triumphant return to Long Island last night. He was an absolute force between the pipes for the Lightning, completely shutting down the Isles.
Oh, what’s that? He was absolutely terrible in typical Nabokov fashion because he’s one trillion years old? Yeah that sounds about right, actually. Chants of “Na-by” echoed throughout the Coliseum last night as the Isles hang a five spot on their former goaltender. I don’t care what you say as a player, that gets to you. There’s no way that 13,000 people screaming at you like that doesn’t get under your skin. Evgeni Nabakov is the ugly girl that the Islanders dumped for the prom queen, Jaroslav Halak. Have you seen how sexy Halak is?
Hey Cal Clutterbuck, what do you want for your 27th birthday? How about an unassisted shorthanded goal?
Who else wants some goals? Mikhail Grabovski? (assisted by Frans Nielsen & Kyle Okposo)
Ryan Strome? (assisted by Calvin de Haan)
How about Brock Nelson? (assisted by Lubomir Visnovsky & Frans Nielsen)
Hey Zeek! Get in on the action! (assisted by Kyle Okposo & Brock Nelson)
Good game. Good win. The Barn was rocking last night. All is good on Long Island.
It’s the kid’s birthday! Give him the first star!
