Rumor: Isles to play pre-season game in Brooklyn

The Isles have had some unusual destinations for pre-season games in recent years, including Kansas City, Quebec City, Saskatoon and Terrace, BC.

BD Gallof is reporting on WFAN.com that next year's schedule may include a date in Brooklyn at the brand new Barclays Center.


A countdown clock on The BarclaysCenter website indicates a September 28th opening -- the building is expected to open with a series of Jay Z concerts.  Shawn (Jay Z) Carter is a part owner of the soon-to-be named Brooklyn Nets.
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
