Isles Vanek Out For Third Straight Game

Vanek_Islanders_2013 [1]Thomas Vanek will miss his third consecutive game on Thursday when the Isles host the Kings, the club has announced.

Vanek, 29, suffered an upper-body injury just seconds into Saturday’s loss to Columbus, left immediately, and didn’t return.

He was subsequently held out of a 4-2 loss to Montreal on Sunday, a 3-1 win over Nashville on Tuesday and won’t have a chance help the Isles earn back to back wins tonight.

The Austrian sniper has three points in six games — just one goal — and the Islanders are 3-5-0 since bringing him aboard.
