In an effort to add size to their line-up, Arthur Staple at Newsday reports that the Islanders have replaced David Ullstrom with 6' 1", 225lb Eric Boulton for tonight's game vs. the Rangers.
Boulton is scoreless in five games this season, while Ullstrom has 2g, 3a in 12 games.
Capuano wants more size in lineup tonight, felt #Isles were outmuscled last week here vs. #NYR. Would expect Ullstrom back vs. NJ on Sat.

...please don't tell me this is the reason Boyle is in the Rangers lineup over Kreider tonight.
...got to love the Islanders. Team is struggling to score goals and they take one of the few guys with multiple goals out of their line-up for someone who hasn't been on the scoresheet this season. Nice work.
