After a poor finish to a three game road trip, the Islanders may be getting some good news. Goaltender Al Montoya and forward David Ullstrom are scheduled to practice with the team today according to Newsday’s Arthur Staple. Both have been out since December 21 with concussions suffered during a game against the Winnipeg Jets. According to the report, Montoya will not be ready in time for Tuesday’s game against the Detroit Red Wings at Nassau Coliseum and the team may call up Bridgeport goaltender Kevin Poulin. Poulin has been a roll as of late, posting three consecutive shutouts for the Islanders farm team and set an organizational record. Anders Nilsson has played back up to Evgeni Nabokov for the past two weeks due to injuries to Montoya and Rick Dipietro. Nilsson’s only start of the season was against the Pittsburg Penguins back on November 21. He allowed 5 goals against in game remembered for the return of injured Penguins start Sidney Crosby. Nabokov has started eight cons...

Red Wings-Islanders set-up and overnight report: competition level’s a concern versus Islanders

DET (26-14-1) have an opportunity to win consecutive road contests, for the first time in forever, tonight at the NYI (14-19-6).  All of the numbers suggest the Wings should prevail against the L’Eastern Conference cellar dwellers.  The Islanders cannot score, 2.26 G/G (28), cannot keep the puck out of their own net, 3.15 GA/G (25), and are the league worst team at even strength...
