OTTAWA, Ontario — The Islanders recalled goalie Christopher Gibson from Bridgeport on an unexpected emergency basis on Wednesday in what is possibly not a good indicator for Robin Lehner’s position, at least in the limited time period.
The Islanders conclude a household-and-household collection with the Senators on Thursday evening at Canadian Tire Centre and Lehner still left Tuesday night’s 5-4 shootout earn at NYCB Live’s Nassau Coliseum at 15:20 of the 3rd period of time with what appeared to be a head difficulty.
Lehner was bowled about by Brady Tkachuk and was flat on his again in distress on Jean-Gabriel Pageau’s ensuing online video-reviewed tying intention. Lehner was attended to by the professional medical employees, tried to skate off what was bothering him, but in the long run experienced to go away the sport.
The Islanders did not have an update on Lehner on Wednesday.
Gibson, 26, is 3-4-3 with a 3.56 targets-versus ordinary and a .901 help you save share in 13 job NHL game titles with the Islanders. He is 18-9-1 with a 3.00 GAA and .857 help you save share for Bridgeport this period.
Thomas Greiss, who produced two saves in relief of Lehner then stopped both of those of the Senators’ shootout makes an attempt to seal the earn, is predicted to begin on Thursday evening.
