Isles pre-season telecasts

While MSG is not scheduled to carry an Isles pre-season game, NHL Network will
have at least 2 -- one live and one on tape.

Wed, 9/29 New York Islanders vs. Philadelphia Flyers 7:00 PM LIVE
Wed, 9/29 Calgary Flames vs. New York Islanders (Saskatoon, SK) 4:00 AM *
(This is 4AM ET on Thursday, September 30)

The NHL's release also notes that NHL Network is supposed to cover the Isles
game in Quebec City against Montreal on October 2nd. However, that game is not
listed among the 35 games that will be shown on NHLNetwork US. With the Isles
also playing at home that night, it seems likely that most of the Islander stars
will play at LeColiseum and not at LeColisee (now the Colisee Pepsi).

Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home
telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: forever1940.blogspot.com and follow me on
