Lehner (upper-body) returned to practice on Wednesday.

Lehner missed the last three games with an upper-body injury that he suffered last Tuesday, but was back on the ice for practice on Wednesday. Thomas Greiss, who shutout the Blue Jackets on Monday, will likely start Thursday vs. Montreal but Lehner could be back for this weekend’s back-to-back (Sat. @ DET / Sun. @ MIN).

Greiss was yanked after allowing five goals on 15 shots in the Islanders 5-2 loss to the Flyers on Saturday. It was a rough outing for Greiss, but with Robin Lehner still out, he will start again on Monday. Greiss is 2-2-0 with a 2.93 GAA and .895 SV% in March and 2-0-0 with a 1.00 GAA, .967 SV% and one shutout vs. the Blue Jackets this season.
