Islanders, Flames hope to welcome back injured D-men

Two key NHL defensemen with injuries have been spotted skating and could be in the lineup Thursday when the New York Islanders visit the Calgary Flames.

Flames blueliner Travis Hamonic and Islanders defender Johnny Boychuk are both game-day decisions for their teams.

Hamonic appears the most likely to fit back into his team's lineup. After missing 14 games with an upper-body injury, he fully participated in practice Tuesday and Wednesday.
