Islanders' Ryan Strome: Will return to the lineup

Strome will return to the Islanders lineup versus Pittsburgh on Wednesday, Cory Wright of Islanders web sit reports.

Strome was been one of several Islanders suffering disappointing seasons. He only has two goals and six points this year. The Islanders have tried to jump start the offense and Strome in multiple ways by switching up the lines. Against Pittsburgh Strome has been dropped to the fourth line with Anders Lee and Jason Chimera. He will be back at his normal center position but a skilled forward playing on a checking line doesn't seem to be a match made in heaven.
