Isles Schedule Changes
I note two revisions from the original schedule released in June.
The November 25th game against New Jersey is now a 3pm game. This is on Black Friday (day after Thanksgiving) and will get the game away from NBC's exclusive window). NBC will show Chicago-Detorit that afternoon in the first game under their 10-year contract with the NHL.
The December 20th game in Winnipeg is now an 8:30 ET start. The original schedule had it 1 hour earlier.
The national TV schedule will be released on Thursday.
