BOSTON -- Evgeni Nabokov continued his workhorse ways, winning his 20th game, one more than he had last season, when the Isles played the full 82 games instead of the 41 they've played so far.

Nabokov lowered his goals-against average to 2.54 from nearly 3.00 through the first half of this shortened season.
