Schenn is out at least two weeks.

Newsday: Mr Logan's article has comments from head coach Scott Gordon and Blake Comeau about how well he played Saturday, why he was sent to Bridgeport and what both feel have to happen for him him to stay as Mr Logan notes Tambellini's future options after his conditioning assignment ends.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Good stuff from Gordon and Comeau here but going back to camp the new Islander coach seemed to go out of his way to put down his contribution from a year ago when everyone from the veterans to the general manager praised his play.

I hope Comeau and Tambellini are not a proposition where it's one or the other. In that instance Comeau did more in one game than Tambellini did all season by far.

Going back to last summer: Comeau, Bergenheim, Sim & Tambellini all are left wings which was written about here a lot.

NY Post: Dan Martin was given seven total sentences to quote Joey MacDonald and write about the upcoming crucial stretch starting tonight.
