Pre-Season schedule

The NHL allows teams to release their own pre-season schedules, so I have most of the Islanders', even though they haven't announced theirs.

(all times Eastern)
Wednesday September 16 at Edmonton Rexall Place 9:00 p.m.
Thursday September 17at Calgary 9:00 pm Saddledome
Saturday September 19 vs Calgary 9:00 pm Credit Union Centre/Saskatoon
Sunday September 20 vs Edmonton (at Saskatoon) Credit Union Centre 9:00 p.m.
Tuesday, September 22 vs. Los Angeles at Sprint Center in Kansas City, 8:00 pm.

The Rangers have announced their schedule -- the Islanders are not on it.

Teams can play as many as 9 pre-season games, so there will likely be a game or two closer to home.  Traditionally, the Isles' last pre-seaon game is on Sunday (which would be September 27), but if rumors that the team will open at home on Saturday, October 3rd are correct, there might be time for another game.

One thing is for certain- the Isles' home opener will not be on Friday, October 2.  That night the Coliseum is booked for another home opener -- the New York Majesty. 

Who are the Majesty you might ask?  They play in the LFL -- the Lingerie Football League.

 Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982.
