Martin, Gillies and Konopka to have in-person hearings tonight

 Newsday has confirmed that Matt Martin, Trevor Gillies and Zenon Konopka are all scheduled to have in-person meetings with the NHL tonight in Buffalo regarding their involvement in last night's game.

According to a source, those meetings are scheduled for 5 p.m. at the Islanders team hotel in Buffalo, NY. The Islanders play the Sabres tomorrow at 3 p.m.

Islanders GM Garth Snow will sit in on all three hearings and coach Jack Capuano is expected to be involved as well.

Matt Martin's hearing will be concerning his ambush of Max Talbot, Gillies' his elbow/taunt on Tangradi. Although reports have claimed Konopka's hearing involves a line change he made to enter the game and fight, I have not yet confirmed that as an exact reason.
