Islanders head coach Barry Trotz didn't have an update on Johnny Boychuk or Cal Clutterbuck, who were both hurt in Game 4 of their first-round series against the Penguins.
The Islanders, who swept Pittsburgh on Tuesday, did not practice on Thursday as they look ahead to the Eastern Conference semifinals.
Boychuk went to the locker room after blocking a shot off his right leg in the second period and did not return, while Clutterbuck also missed the third period with an injury but was not wearing a cast or crutch after the game.
Trotz also said Tanner Fritz, who has been dealing with a hand injury, is close to resuming skating but would not offer a definitive timetable for his return.
New York, which faces the winner of the Hurricanes-Capitals series, still has several more days until its second-round series begins.
"We're going to manage it right," Trotz said of the Islanders' injuries on Wednensday, according to the New York Post's Brett Cyrgalis. "Then we'll get back to work and try to get in a rhythm. This group always practices very well. We'll be ready for our next opponent. They're not afraid of hard work, they're not afraid of a challenge. This is part of the growth. If we have a week off, or eight or nine days, that'll be the challenge. I'll present it to the group and they'll be up for it."
