Koskinen in position to help Isles tie club record

"Half of life is just showing up" - Woody Allen.

Mikko Koskinen, recalled from Bridgeport in the wake of Rick DiPietro's injury
could help the Isles tie a club record -- all he has to do is play.

The Isles have used four goalies this season (Roloson, DiPietro, Lawson,
Poulin); the club record for goaltenders used in a season is 5, set in 1990-91:
(Glenn Healy,Jeff Hackett, George Maneluk, Mark Fitzpatrick and Danny Lorenz)
and equalled in 1999-2000 (Stephen Valiquette,
Wade Flaherty, Felix Potvin,Roberto Luongo and Kevin Weekes)

Tampa and Ottawa are the other two teams that have used four goalies this

Two NHL teams, the Rangers and the Flyers, used five goalie last season.
