According to Newsday, Islanders defenseman Johnny Boychuk is out after suffering a knee on knee hit from the Kings Kyle Clifford in the Islanders victory on Thursday. Boychuk will be examined tomorrow when the team arrives back home, Newsday reports.
Losing Boychuk would be huge for the Islanders. He is an anchor back there as well as a presence on the power play. Hopefully, for the team, this will not be serious and he will be right back in the lineup on Tuesday.
