Uniondale, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The New York Islanders placed goaltender Evgeni Nabokov on injured reserve with a lower-body injury following the team's 7-3 win over the Dallas Stars on Monday.
Nabokov got the start against the Stars and made a sprawling pad save with just over 8 1/2 minutes left in the first period, but immediately reached for his right hip/side area in obvious pain.
After meeting with the trainer, Nabokov remained in the game, but on Dallas' next trip into the New York zone, the veteran netminder was unable to slide from post-to-post and headed to the locker room at the next stoppage.
Kevin Poulin took over between the pipes for Nabokov, who gave up a goal on eight shots prior to the injury.
Nabokov missed 10 games earlier this season with a groin injury.
With the Islanders scheduled to visit Toronto on Tuesday, New York recalled goaltender Anders Nilsson from Bridgeport of the American Hockey League on emergency basis.
