Video: Senators Goalie Robin Lehner Elbows Islanders Goalie Kevin Poulin

Is there a bounty out on the goaltenders of the New York Islanders?  It is starting to appear that way as just three days after Rick DiPietro has his face broken in a fight with Penguins goalie Brent Johnson, Isles goalie Kevin Poulin got elbowed by Senators goalie Robin Lehner following the second period ending.  Poulin was skating to the Islanders locker room when Lehner decided to hit him with his left elbow, and Poulin was knocked to the ice. 
The move by Lehner would help the Islanders as they would score a power play goal to open the third period.  Also good thing for the Islanders that Poulin is not made of glass like DiPietro so he was able to continue in the game.
