Jaroslav Halak has been activated off IR. Poulin is on his way back to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. #IslesHalak was placed on IR yesterday with a lower body injury. With him being activated, I would expect him to play tomorrow against Washington.

Yesterday further showed how important Halak is to the team. The team is very fortunate that Halak wasn't more seriously injured.
