The NHL announced cancellation of games through October 24th today.
Unless rescheduled, this would wipe out the first six games of the schedule, including home games with Philadelphia, Buffalo and Florida.
The cancellations reduce the tragic number to 120. 120 games remain in the Coliseum lease.
The Isles first game is now scheduled to be on Friday, October 26th against Toronto. Don't hold your breath.
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
