Marek Zidlicky is expected to stay in the lineup for Game 3 on Tuesday night.

He has had trouble containing the Lightning in Round 2, but Ryan Pulock isn't ready to return to the lineup yet. Zidlicky has four penalty minutes and three shots in the first two games of the series. He has one assist in four playoff matches.

Marek Zidlicky will draw into the Islanders' lineup Friday night.

Zidlicky was a healthy scratch for the first four games of the Islanders' first round series. New York needed to change its lineup because Ryan Pulock is out with an upper-body injury.

Marek Zidlicky will be a healthy scratch in Game 4 of the Eastern Quarterfinal series against the Florida Panthers.

The Islanders will go with the same lineup in Game 4 from the winning lineup in Game 3, which means, joining the veteran blueliner in the press box will be Adam Pelech, Steve Bernier, Eric Boulton and Christopher Gibson.

Coach Jack Capuano will forego any lineup changes for Sunday's Game 3 against the Panthers.

Which means that Marek Zidlicky, Adam Pelech, Steve Bernier, Eric Boulton, and Christopher Gibson will remain on the sidelines. Through 44 career playoff games, Zidlicky has posted 15 points.

Marek Zidlicky, Adam Pelech, and Steve Bernier will each be scratched for Game 2 on Friday night in addition to Eric Boulton and Christopher Gibson as well.

Of the group only Zidlicky has posted a modicum of fantasy value. He posted 16 points in 53 games this season. In addition, through 44 career playoff games he's posted 15 points.

Marek Zidlicky will be a healthy scratch in Game 1 against Florida on Thursday.

The 39-year-old missed most of the final month of the season because of an upper-body injury. Zidlicky had four goals and 16 points in 53 games.

Marek Zidlicky will get one final regular season game in Sunday's match with Philadelphia.

Zidlicky has posted just four goals and 16 points through 52 games for the Islanders this season, so we wouldn't expect much tonight. But with just one goal til 90, and three points for 420, it'd be cool to see him reach the nice round numbers for his career.
Sun, Apr 10, 2016 06:55:00 PM

Marek Zidlicky will be scratched against the Sabres on Saturday night.

Through the final 52 games of his vaunted regular season career, Zidlicky posted four goals and 16 points with four coming on the man advantage. He doesn't have a lot left in the tank, but he can still be a difference-maker in crunch time.

Marek Zidlicky will be back in the New York Islanders lineup Saturday.

Zidlicky has missed 13 games with an upper body injury but with Travis Hamonic out with a knee injury, Zidlicky will jump back in. The veteran defenseman has four goals and 15 points in 49 games this season and at age 39 this could be his last hurrah in the NHL.
Sat, Apr 2, 2016 09:55:00 AM

Marek Zidlicky (upper body) will be out of the lineup 'a little while'.

The 39 year-old suffered his injury a week ago when the Islanders battled the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. In 49 games, Zidlicky has just four goals and 15 points. Fellow teammate Mikhail Grabovski was out of the Islanders lineup on Saturday for the ninth straight game and may miss some time too. Grabovski has only posted nine goals and 16 assists in 57 games this season.

Marek Zidlicky missed practice Friday and will sit out his third straight game with an upper body injury.

Zidlicky has only four goals and 15 points in 49 games this season and it appears that his days of being fantasy relevant are over.
Sat, Mar 12, 2016 08:40:00 AM

Marek Zidlicky didn't play against Pittsburgh on Tuesday because of an upper-body injury.

Zidlicky has four goals and 15 points in 49 games this season. He should be regarded as day-to-day for now.
Wed, Mar 9, 2016 09:51:00 AM

Marek Zidlicky will tag in for Ryan Pulock on Sunday against the Rangers.

The veteran defender hasn't played in over a week. Zidlicky has also posted just four goals and 15 points with 60 blocks in 48 games this season. Anything can happen in a rivalry game, but there are probably better options on your waiver wire.
