Ryan Pulock to miss 4-6 weeks with ‘lower body’ (So: leg, probably foot/ankle) injury

Already reeling from a four-game losing streak where they bled goals against to end their 13-game road stretch, the New York Islanders face another blow as they prepare to open UBS Arena on Saturday: Ryan Pulock is expected to miss the next 4-6 weeks with a lower-body injury.

The estimate likely means he suffered a fracture from a shot block during Monday’s loss in Tampa, so we’ll guess the injury is to a bone in his ankle or foot. He ultimately left that game and was scratched for Tuesday’s loss vs. the Panthers, with the dreaded “will be evaluated back home” added afterward.
