Staple: Visnovsky physical Thursday, could play Saturday vs. Sabres

By this point you know Lubomir Visnovsky is at long last on his way to the New York Islanders, so we needn't continue with the breathless updates through stretched translations of reports from his home country of Slovakia.

But to hopefully tie a bow on this story stream, which in one context stretches back to last summer, Newsday's Arthur Staple says the not-quite-prodigal defenseman should arrive on Long Island this evening in time to have his physical Thursday morning:

Visnovsky has battled injuries over the past couple of seasons, so cross your fingers he passes the physical.

Look for more from Staple in Newsday. After facing the New York Rangers at the Garden Thursday, the Islanders will host the Buffalo Sabres at Nassau Coliseum Saturday night.

The Isles have one open roster slot thanks to Radek Martinek being placed on IR earlier this week. If, as Staple also suggests, Josh Bailey (knee) is targeting a return by Saturday, that means there's one more move to come.
