TAMBELLINI RECALLED

Could see action against Boston at Monday's Kids Free Night on a line with Satan and Comrie

Jeff Tambellini
Jeff Tambellini was recalled from Bridgeport (AHL) this morning and joined the Islanders in time for their practice this afternoon at Islanders Iceworks. Last night the wing had a goal, an assist and the decisive goal in the shootout in the Sound Tigers' 4-3 win over Lowell.

"We need to shake things up to get our offense going," said Islanders head coach Ted Nolan. "Jeff's speed and skill should be a big help to us."

The 23-year old Tambellini practiced today on a line with center Mike Comrie and right wing Miroslav Satan.

"Miro and Mike are two-world class players," Tambellini said after practice. "This is an opportunity I need to take advantage of to prove I belong in the NHL on a regular basis."

In 20 games with Bridgeport this season, the 5-11, 190-pound Tambellini has seven goals and 14 assists for 21 points.

The Islanders host the Boston Bruins on Monday night at 7:05 pm at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Kids 16 and under can receive free tickets to the game starting at 5:00 pm at the Coliseum box office. This special event - which also includes a Toys for Tots collection by the United States Marines - is made possible by Rexcorp Islanders Inspire, an initiative of the New York Islanders Children's Foundation.

We'll see Monday night if Nolan goes back to utilizing four forward lines. Here were the combinations at today's practice:

Fedotenko - Vasicek - Guerin
Bergenheim - Sillinger - Hunter
Tambellini - Comrie - Satan
Simon - Park - Hilbert
