Brendan Witt will be lost to the Islanders for the next three-to-four weeks with a knee injury.
Witt was involved in a knee-on-knee collision Saturday and hobbled with a knee brace Monday. Officially, the Islanders are calling it a lower-body injury, using the NHL's new injury policy, or lack thereof, to its fullest extent.
The Islanders are getting quite thin on defense with this injury. The top 6 for yesterday's game was Streit, Campoli, Hillen, Gervais, Pock and Brett Skinner...
With Rick Dipietro out, the season will be long in Long Island.
