So the Islanders have rediscovered the enforcer role, signing AHL Bridgeport's Trevor Gillies to a NHL contract and calling him up in time for Saturday's matinee in Philadelphia. (Tim Jackman, who had become the Islanders' resident enforcer-by-default, is still injured.)
4 shifts, 2:40 TOI (allegedly 1:21 on the powerplay?!), 1 shot, 5 penalties, 21 PIM.
h/t to readers Nystrom and Hanz und Franz for some links and insight from Thursday's game thread. Time to put on the foil.
