Khabi's been khurt

Watching the Blackhawks with The Boy, and it occurs to me that this is the second game I've seen recently where the backup goalie was in instead of Khabiboulin.

Now I know why:

1/1/2006 9:15 AM
Nikolai Khabibulin (groin) was placed on IR Saturday retroactive to last Wednesday's game vs. St. Louis. He is eligible to come off Thursday in Vancouver, but coach Trent Yawney says he'll need a week of rest and a few practices before returning to the lineup.

Bummer. And I coulda SWORE there was an "O" in his name, too. Huh. Learn something new every day...
