Islanders Gameday News: Come Back to the 5 & Dime, Johnny Boychuk, Johnny Boychuk

It's not a typo - it's a movie reference. FIG picks for tonight's game against the Bruins can be left here. Let's not all pick Johnny Boychuk, OK? Islanders news Move-a-rama! Anders Lee was recalled from Bridgeport and Colin McDonald was placed on waivers Wednesday. If he isn't claimed by a team before noon today, McDonald will report to the Sound Tigers. Also, Mikhail Grabovski was placed on IR with a concussion retroactive to the 16th. That's bad. The good news: Lubomir Visnovsky could be on his way back.

Islanders' Johnny Boychuk finds another home on Long Island

No one associated with the Islanders wants Johnny Boychuk to be a classic "stay at home" defenseman. That is good for the team because it means he is free to be active and mobile. And it is good for Boychuk, who learned long ago that staying in one place for long would not get him anywhere.
