Since I already got yelled at for not noting it here…
–Gervais, Smith and Colley get the call; they join the Islanders on their midwest swing; Robert Nilsson was assigned here
–Chris Thompson and Mark Lee are up from Trenton, and Frederic Cloutier is up from Pepsicola to back up Dubielewicz with Madden out (knee)
–With Rourke out (oblique), and Smith and Colley on recall, the three guys wearing alternates’ A’s tonight: Karpa, Brigley and Hamilton.
–Rob Collins is giving it a go in warmup.
