Isle Pre-Season Sked


It's official - the first (and only pre-season) game at the Coliseum this season will be on Friday, September 27 against long-time (not really) rival Nashville.  That game will come six days after the Isles host New Jersey at Barclays Center in the first hockey game to be played in their future home.

The Isles will play 4 opponents twice this season -- split squad games vs the Flames and vs the Senators account for four of the eight games.  Home/home with New Jersey (home game at Barclays) and Nashville.

The regular season schedule will be announced shortly -- unofficial chatter has the home opener on Saturday, October 5th vs. Columbus.
