Kevin Poulin to start for Islanders

The New York Islanders (http://www.urbestjerseys.com/Detroit_Red_Wings_NHL_Jerseys--pc-532-1)have called up Kevin Poulin from Bridgeport and will give him the start in net.

Kevin Poulin has been recalled with Evgeni Nabokov being re-evaluated and feared not quite ready to go. Rick DiPietro is retroactively placed on IR to make room

Al Montoya has struggled in his last two games, and will back up, so Poulin will get his first start of the year.

Poulin was drafted in the fifth round by the New York Islanders (http://www.urbestjerseys.com/New_York_Islanders_NHL_Jerseys--pc-533-1) in 2008 and is just 21.

He was called up last season, and played well _ forging a 4-2-1 record with a 2.44 GAA and .924 save percentage before blowing out his knee. He went through a long rehab and returned to Bridgeport this season. and has a 6-7-0 record with a 3.37 GAA and .892 save percentage.

With a few more veteran goaltenders in the mix, the 21-year-old Poulin didn't figure to get as much of a chance to play with the big club this season, which was going to be the best thing for his development.

Leafs Recall Darryl Boyce

The Toronto Maple Leafs have recalled forward Darryl Boyce from the Toronto Marlies of the AHL. Boyce, who saw extended time with the club last year, was demoted at the beginning of the season and told to continue to work on his game.

This season, Boyce has amassed 10 points in 22 games with the Marlies, adding 22 PIMs as well. Boyce will most likely directly take Colby Armstrong‘s place on the third line, so there shouldn’t be too much line shuffling.

Boyce (http://www.comjerseyscom.com/Sports-outdoors/NHL-jerseys-NHL-jersey-Hockey-Jerseys-Hockey-jerseys/Edmonton-Oilers-Jerseys/) should bolster the lineup defensively, and might be able to add some offensive pop to the third line. Armstrong has just 1 point in 9 games played this season.

Boyce, 27, has appeared in 22 games with the Marlies this season, collecting four goals and six assists for 10 points with 22 penalty minutes. The 6-0, 200-pound native of Summerside, P.E.I. registered 13 points (5 goals, 8 assists), a plus-eight (+8) rating and 33 penalty minutes in 46 games with the Toronto Maple Leafs (http://www.comjerseyscom.com/Sports-outdoors/NHL-jerseys-NHL-jersey-Hockey-Jerseys-Hockey-jerseys/Toronto-Maple-Leafs/) in 2010-11.

He also collected six goals, 10 assists, 16 points, 48 penalty minutes and a plus-seven (+7) rating in 35 games with the Marlies last season.

The Toronto Maple Leafs also placed Colby Armstrong on injured reserve with a concussion and he is out indefinitely. Armstrong suffered the injury Saturday against Vancouver Canucks (http://www.comjerseyscom.com/Sports-outdoors/NHL-jerseys-NHL-jersey-Hockey-Jerseys-Hockey-jerseys/Vancouver-Canucks-Nhl-Jerseys-Hockey-Jersey/).

Lewis, Webb both practicing for Ravens

Baltimore Ravens middle linebacker Ray Lewis who made his return Sunday after missing four consecutive games with a toe injury , is active and will play tonight against the Chargers.

Cornerback Lardarius Webb, who didn't practice at all this week because of a toe injury of his own, is also active tonight. Webb will suit up, giving the Ravens a full cornerback corps against San Diego Charger (http://www.comjerseyscom.com/Sports-outdoors/Nfl-jerseys-Football-jersey-Jerseys-Wholesale/San-Diego-Charger-Nfl-Jerseys/)'s potent passing attack.

Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh said yesterday that the team will have to look seriously at Cundiff's condition during the week.

Also active tonight are kicker Billy Cundiff (left calf), defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (back), defensive tackle Cory Redding (ankle), guard Ben Grubbs (toe), and cornerback Chris Carr (back), who were all listed as questionable for tonight's game.

Add it all up, and it means the Baltimore Ravens (http://www.comjerseyscom.com/Sports-outdoors/Nfl-jerseys-Football-jersey-Jerseys-Wholesale/Baltimore-Ravens-Nfl-Jerseys/)are pretty darn healthy tonight.

Ndamukong Suh not stellar in first game back with Lions after suspension

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh saved his best for last when he blocked Sebastian Janikowski's potential winning field goal as time expired.

Otherwise, Suh had an extremely quiet day in his return from a two-game suspension. Just one tackle and one assist while extending his sackless streak to five games.

After Detroit Lions (http://www.urbestjerseys.com/Detroit_Lion_Nfl_Jerseys--pc-519-1)' 28-27 win against the Oakland Raiders, Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh stepped to the podium and addressed the stomping incident with Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith without any solicitation

Suh’s “mistake” was a pretty big one, and his public apologies have been criticized in some quarters for not mentioning the man he stomped on, Green Bay Packers (http://www.urbestjerseys.com/Baltimore_Ravens_Nfl_Jerseys--pc-492-1)offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith. But Suh said the two talked on the phone and “are on very good terms.”

The San Francisco Chronicle observed that Suh was "largely pushed out of the way in his first game back." But coach Jim Schwartz said Monday that Suh played "about the same as he always does."

The Detroit Lions (http://www.urbestjerseys.com/New_Orleans_Saints_NFL_Jerseys--pc-490-1)will need Suh to make more big plays like the win-sealing block of Janikowski’s kick.
