Islanders Bits: Kevin Poulin Returned to Bridgeport

Update: After the win last night, Kevin Poulin has been returned on loan to AHL Bridgeport.

A sampling of Islanders and NHL coverage below includes Brian Rolston, healthy scratch; Casey Cizikas, Player of the Week; and Marek Zidlicky, Minnesota malcontent with a NTC and one year left on his contract.

Recaps of last night's 5-2 win from: Yours truly | Newsday with a deep recap, including John Tavares on his winner: "I told Matt and Kyle we needed a response." Done, sir. | Canes Country says Canes can't stop Tavares | IPB, with special nod to the ordeal of finding MSG+3k | NYIFYI on JT picking up where he left off | Eyes on Isles on JT's ... hey wait, I'm sensing a theme here.

NHL.com's headline featured Tavares' four points, but also this from Poulin: "The last couple years there have been three goalies here ... When you get the call up, you just have to be ready. I just focus on the game and my team."

More:

Would you check in on what Minnesota might want for a distressed asset in Zidlicky, or does his discontent scare you off and the NTC make you figure this isn't on his list anyway?
