No word yet on how the goaltenders will split time.

This is a Bridgeport-heavy group, clearly; it doesn't appear that the Islanders will make cuts, necessarily, after the game in Boston and Saturday's game at the Coliseum against the Devils. It's more likely that the 50 or so players will be split into more distinct Islanders and Bridgeport groups after either Saturday's game or Tuesday's in Calgary.

It is a chance for some of the projected AHL players to get some good minutes, though, and show that they should stick around with the big boys.
