Islanders Bits: Ullstrom Injured, on IR; Lightning Morning After; Bridgeport Moves

USA TODAY Sports

News and general bathroom reading after the Isles won 2-0 in Tampa Bay.

Good morning. Your New York Islanders didn't gain in the standings last night, but they didn't drop either. They won a game they needed, against an opponent they should probably leave behind.

Sorry, no update on David Ullstrom's injury last night yet, but it did not look good. UPDATE: He's expected to miss three to four weeks with a groin injury. Real pity for the Swede if he's out long term. This season started out promisingly, he did well in Bridgeport and earned an opening night NHL roster spot, even scored an OT winner in his one-day demotion to Bridgeport. Now this. And there is Jesse Joensuu (less speed, more gritz) to potentially take his place.

Luongo and Schneider

Good sports, those two, as TSN goes for the funny:


More later. As always, if you see a good link feel free to add it in comments or post a FanShot (or both).
