Martin was a healthy scratch Monday versus the Blues, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Coach Barry Trotz has been critical of Martin's play and that had led to his being a healthy scratch in back to back games now. It may take a little bit of time for Martin to get back into the lineup as the Islanders have won both games without him and Trotz may not want to fix what currently isn't broken.
Martin has yet to find his game this season, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Coach Barry Trotz has been unhappy with the play of Casey Cizikas, Cal Clutterbuck and Martin so far this season. That trio is expected to be the energy line for the Isles by hitting everything that moves. If they aren't playing a physical game, their value to the Islanders is diminished. Martin will look to return to his usual physical self Friday in Carolina.
