Eric Boulton's undisclosed injury is related to his upper-body.

Boulton last played on Dec. 12 and we've been given no reason to believe his return is imminent. At this point you should regard him as being out indefinitely.

Jaroslav Halak turned aside 29 of 31 shots in a 3-2 shootout win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The 30-year-old now sports a 13-11-4 record to go along with a 2.27 goals-against-average and a .918 save percentage. Halak is 3-5-1 in his last 9 starts. Over that same span, Halak has allowed three or more goals five times.
Feb 9 - 11:45 PM

Anders Lee scored his eighth goal of the season in a 3-2 shootout win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Lee tied the game at 2-2 early in the third period on the power play. The 25-year-old has eight goals and 23 points in 52 games this season, including four points in his last 10 games.
Feb 9 - 11:35 PM

Marek Zidlicky and Steve Bernier will be scratched from Tuesday's match with Columbus.

Through 43 games in this, his final NHL season, Zidlicky has posted just three goals and 14 points with 52 blocks. Not exactly the kind of send off he or the Islanders were hoping for.

Jaroslav Halak will be in goal for the Islanders against Columbus.

He hasn't played well in his last three outings and he was pulled Saturday versus Detroit. Halak will try to get back on track against a Blue Jackets team that has been playing fairly well lately.

John Tavares believes the Islanders should have scored more than eight goals in Sunday's 8-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers.

Tavares scored a goal and two assists in the game, but he wasn't satisfied with his team's output. "You’re not going to get eight many nights," Tavares said. "That said, we should’ve had a few more. We want to get to doing some of the offensive things we were doing last season that made us successful."
Feb 8 - 9:15 AM

Johnny Boychuk scored in Sunday's blowout win over the Edmonton Oilers.

Boychuk got the party started, as he opened the scoring with a slap shot from the point. This was the 32-year-old's second game back from injury after he missed 11 games because of an upper-body injury. He has four goals and 15 points in 40 games in 2015-16. The Islanders defense is much better with him than without him.
Feb 8 - 9:11 AM

Nick Leddy picked up a trio of helpers during Sunday's 8-1 win over the Oilers.

Quite the game for Leddy as his production has been missing from the Islanders' blue line this season. He's now up to just 20 assists and 23 points, a far cry from his 10 goals and 37 points a year ago.
Feb 7 - 6:33 PM

John Tavares scored his third three-point game of the season during Sunday's 8-1 win over the Oilers.

With a goal and two assists, Tavares is now up to 19 goals and 40 points on the year. Or about half of what he produced last season when he nearly won the scoring title.
Feb 7 - 6:31 PM

Frans Nielsen picked up a pair of assists during Sunday's 8-1 win over Edmonton.

The veteran Islander center now has 18 assists and 33 points on the season. Not quite the production we've come accustomed to, unfortunate.
Feb 7 - 6:30 PM

Cal Clutterbuck picked up his second multi-point game of the season during Sunday's 8-1 win over the Oilers.

Clutterbuck may not match his career high of 19 goals this season, but he needs just one more to surpass his high with the Islanders. The elite fourth liner now has 15 points on the year.
Feb 7 - 6:28 PM

Kyle Okposo scored his third career hat trick during Sunday's 8-1 win over the Oilers.

Two power play tallies and an even strength goal, plus an assist, amounts to quite the day for Okposo. He's now up to 15 goals and 36 points in his walk year.
Feb 7 - 6:26 PM

Thomas Greiss cruised to a 30-save, 8-1 win over the Oilers on Sunday.

It was 4-0 before the first period ended, so Greiss had this one on lock early. His record is now up to 14-6-2 with 48 goals against on the season. Greiss might be this season's best backup netminder.
Feb 7 - 6:24 PM

Brian Strait will tag in for Marek Zidlicky in Sunday's matinee versus Edmonton.

Through 31 games this season Strait has accumulated eight points, 18 PIMs, 33 blocks, and 79 hits. Not much value there, unfortunately.
Feb 7 - 12:27 PM

Scott Mayfield has been sent to the minors.

The Islanders were compensating for the fact that Johnny Boychuk (shoulder) was ready to rejoin the team on Saturday. Mayfield has no points and two penalty minutes in three games with the Islanders this season.
