Video: Islanders’ goalie Nabokov injured against Red Wings

Nov 16, 2013, 8:04 PM EDT

New York Islanders Evgeni Nabokov left Saturday’s game, just 4:12 into the first period with an apparent injury.

Kevin Poulin came into the game to replace Nabokov.

The injury occurred when Detroit Red Wings forward Darren Helm, in all alone, took a shot on Nabokov, who immediately began motioning for the training staff after play stopped and needed to be assisted off the ice.

He couldn’t put much, if any pressure on his right knee as he was helped off. Helm scored on the play.

Nabokov last played seven days ago against the Columbus Blue Jackets, as per NHL.com.

    Apparently a groin. Be interesting to see whether Garth moves for a goalie now.

    Now that Buffalo has new leadership, will Miller want to stay?
