Nabby loses

Nabokov made 25 saves, but Germany shutout Russia 2-0. It's a win for
ex-Islander Uwe Krupp behind the German bench. Krupp, of course, has a famous
place in Islander history. Just over 21 years ago his OT goal, for Buffalo
against Pittsburgh, knocked the Isles into the playoffs. The Penguins had the
last laugh, drafting Jaromir Jagr 5th, ahead of the Isles pick of Scott
Scissons.

Canada begins their tourney right about now. John Tavares is the Isles' rep on
a squad that elected not to add Matt Moulson.

Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home
telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: forever1940.blogspot.com and follow me on
