Expect emergency recall of defenseman for trip to Nashville

 UPDATE: Dylan Reese was indeed scratched for Bridgeport's game against Worcester, so assume an announcement of his emergency recall will come soon.

***

No practice this morning for the Islanders, who will fly to Nashville later this afternoon. With both defensemen Radek Martinek (arm) and Mark Eaton (groin) day to day with injuries, expect the Islanders to recall a defenseman from Bridgeport on an emergency basis.

Logical choice would be Dylan Reese, although there has been no word yet from the Islanders. Bridgeport plays Worcester on the road at 3 p.m. today, so it should be apparent by then who will be joining the Islanders on their trip to Nashville.
