Isles announce Brooklyn game
Story is on http://islanders.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=614498
The team notes it will be the first NHL game played in Brooklyn. Students of the game may be aware of the "Brooklyn Americans", who played as most of their existence as the NY Americans. However, that team only practiced in Brooklyn, and played its home games at Madison Square Garden.
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since January 21, 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
