Poulin, Wallace recalled

December, 5, 2011
In wake of the myriad of injuries suffered in the Islanders 5-4 win over Dallas Saturday, goaltender Kevin Poulin and forward Tim Wallace have been recalled from Bridgeport (AHL) on an emergency basis.

Goaltender Rick DiPietro (groin) and forwards Nino Niederreiter (concussion) and Michael Grabner (groin) all left Saturday's match with injury.

The Islanders announced Niederreiter is out with a concussion but have yet to release any further update on either DiPietro or Grabner.

Injured defenseman Andrew MacDonald (right leg, 2-4 weeks) and forward Jay Pandolfo (foot) were both placed on injured reserve Monday.
