Safe to say that we had no idea Isles goalie Evgeni Nabokov could do impressions. Late in the Isles’ 4-2 loss to the Rangers, Nabokov managed to do a Dominik Hasek impression that managed to make us think he’s got a great career as an impressionist goalie in the future.
Right now, it looks like Nabokov is imitating a goalie that’s hoping to get traded from a last place team to some place better. Anyhow, check out his great stop on, among others, Derek Stepan.

The Pittsburgh Penguins ended a long run of playoff overtime struggles on Wednesday … and are now one win away from ending the Washington Capitals’ season.
Many expected the Penguins to crater on defense without Kris Letang (they were 2-8-1 in the regular season without him). While there were shaky moments, Pittsburgh emphasized its speed and other strengths in taking a 3-2 overtime thriller against Washington.
With that, the Penguins’ series lead grows to 3-1.
