The New York Islanders have six players out injured as we sit here on this Thursday night. But the Islanders may be getting some injury relief as head coach Lane Lambert gave an update prior to puck drop between the Columbus Blue Jackets: New York Islanders.

Out of the six battered players, four were from questionable hits where there was very little to no retaliation at the moment of the injury or later in the game. No fines or suspensions were handed out by the NHL’s Department of Player Safety either. It begs the question. Are the New York Islanders being taken advantage of? New York Islanders
