Poulin starts vs Devils

 Coach Jack Capuano will not go back to goaltender Rick DiPietro today against the Devils.

Although DiPietro contributed a stellar 40-save performance in the team's 5-3 win over Buffalo in his first game back since suffering a groin strain two weeks ago, it will be Kevin Poulin between the pipes for today's matinee against the Devils.

Capuano said he plans on keeping all three goaltenders around for the immediate future.


Capuano also said the Islanders may roll seven defensemen today; if so, enforcer Trevor Gillies would come out of the lineup.


Also, if you missed it in today's paper, here's a story on Matt Moulson's desire to remain with the Islanders.
