Could Oliver Wahlstrom be back in the New York Islanders lineup for Game 3?
There’s a least a chance of that happening when the puck drops between the Islanders and Boston Bruins on Thursday, according to head coach Barry Trotz. Wahlstrom is still day-to-day after taking an awkward hit along the boards in Game 5 Against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round.
Wahlstrom has missed the Islanders following three playoff games as a result.
“He skated and there’s a possibility,” Trotz said on Tuesday when asked about Wahlstrom playing in Game 3. “Yes, there’s a possibility, but he’s day-to-day.”
The return of Oliver Wahlstrom would be a big boost to the Islanders’ offense. While Wahlstrom only has one goal in the postseason so far, he has helped generate plenty of chances for the Islanders and has three points (one goal, two assists) during the playoffs this year.
Travis Zajac took his spot on the Islanders’ third line alongside Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Kyle Palmieri in Game 6 of the First Round and Game 1 and Game 2 of the Second Round. Zajac played 19:12 in the Islanders 4-3 overtime win in Game 2.
Game 3 is scheduled for Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at the Nassau Coliseum.
