Isles Day-To-Day: Strome Out "For Extended Time"

Ryan Strome suffered an upper-body injury on Wednesday night vs Rangers

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Interim Coach Doug Weight estimates Ryan Strome will be out about three-to-six weeks after suffering an upper-body injury on Wednesday night against the Rangers. Weight said the injury won't require surgery. 

"It's a little better than it looked at first, but it'll be an extended time, whether that's three weeks or six weeks, we'll have to wait and see," Weight said. "It looks as though he'll avoid surgery which is nice, so just hit the wrong way and it's a tough time."

Islanders statistician Eric Hornick breaks down the Islanders-Rangers game

by Eric Hornick @ehornick / New York Islanders

Game 72
Isles 3, Rangers 2

Nikolay Kulemin and Andrew Ladd both scored third period power plays goals as the Isles rallied from a 2-1 deficit to defeat the Rangers 3-2 before a sellout crowd of 18,006 at Madison Square Garden.

It's the first time since February 23, 2016 that the Isles have scored two power play goals in a road game, and the first time they have done so at Madison Square Garden since December 22, 2011.

The win is the Isles' first in regulation in seven games (3-3-1); the Rangers are winless in their last seven at home (0-5-2).

With the win, the Isles move within two points of Boston for the 2nd Wild Card spot; the Isles also hold one game in hand. The Isles also move three points ahead of Tampa Bay. Boston has 9 games to play, the Lightning 10 and the Isles 10.

Ladd lifts Islanders to 3-2 win against Rangers

Andrew Ladd scored the go-ahead goal in the 3rd period as the Islanders extended the Rangers' home losing streak to seven games

  • 04:21 00:54 •

The New York Islanders signed Andrew Ladd for his ability to score in big moments. 

Netting the game-winner in a 3-2 win over the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden in a tight playoff race? Well, that counts. 

"I think that's a pretty big goal," Interim Coach Doug Weight said of Ladd's go-ahead marker with 7:22 to play. "That's what he does, he finds areas and guys that score those goals, they're hard to come by."

The Islanders and Rangers meet on NBCSN's Wednesday Night Rivalry

New York Islanders (33-26-12) at New York Rangers (45-24-4)

8 p.m., Madison Square Garden

Morning Skate Updates

As big as the Islanders-Rangers rivalry is - and as fitting as it is that they're playing on NBCSN's Wednesday Night Rivalry - the Islanders are focusing more on themselves when they visit Madison Square Garden. 

The Islanders start the day three points back of the Toronto Maple Leafs for the second wild card seed in the Eastern Conference. A win doesn't get them back in, but a loss would open the door for Toronto to start pulling away - the Leafs play Columbus at 7 p.m. - making Wednesday bigger than the usual Islanders-Rangers hoopla.
