Two days after Milan Jurcina's return, the Islanders expect  defenseman Radek Martinek back in the lineup as well. The 34-year-old veteran is slated to play Tuesday against Toronto.

Martinek, 34, missed the past six games after a nasty collision into the boards during the Islanders' 5-1 win over the Panthers February 21.

Depth defenseman Ty Wishart was returned to Bridgeport after spending more than a month up with the Islanders.
