Poulin to the Lightning

So reports Arthur Staple: Tampa Bay, with Andrei Vasilevskiy out, put in a waiver claim on Poulin, who departs second in Bridgeport games played for a goalie (156, 27th-most for anybody), eight games behind Wade Dubielewicz.

That cuts what could’ve been a four-contract-goalie situation here to three: Likely Stephon Williams when the Islanders cut down, Chris Gibson, and Parker Milner on an AHL deal.

The Islanders also sent down Justin Vaive, Scott Mayfield and Adam Pelech, along with the seven forwards who did clear waivers at noon.
