SAN JOSE -- San Jose goalie Evgeni Nabokov and defenseman Rob Blake will miss both games on the Sharks' upcoming road trip because of injuries.
Nabokov, second in the NHL with 32 victories, has missed five games due to an undisclosed lower body injury. He didn't travel with the Sharks on Monday to Minnesota for a trip that includes games against the Wild and the St. Louis Blues.
Blake also stayed home after teammate Devin Setoguchi's slap shot hit him in the foot during the Sharks' loss at Vancouver on Saturday night. San Jose still is evaluating the severity of the injury.
