Isles backup Kevin Poulin may get the call soon

Most of the Islanders wait roughly two minutes to see action. Two or three line shifts and the skaters come over the boards and into the fray. Kevin Poulin whose job description is "backup goalie" sat for seven days before he was called to be Evgeni Nabokov's proxy (a 3-2 loss to Chicago) and since has waited another 13 days. With back-to-back games coming this week...

Dee Karl: Poulin & Orange vs Blue

It is probably no surprise to anyone that today Kevin Poulin accepted his qualifying offer from the Islanders. It is a two way agreement, but in order for Kevin to play in Bridgeport, he would have to clear waivers. Now, whether this is a calculated risk or not is another question. Is Garth Snow 100% sure that Poulin will be his Isles back-up to Nabokov? Is it Anders Nilsson...

Kevin Poulin Returned to AHL Bridgeport

The Islanders returned Kevin Poulin to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers yesterday. Poulin did not see any game action in the week he spent as Al Montoya’s back up.
