It Happened at the Coliseum

 7:40 am will never be the same.

Over the years writing The Skinny, I have received many comments about the “Happy Anniversary” feature, which looks back at that date in Islander history.

In honor (and in memory) of the final season at the Coliseum, I hope you’ll enjoy a slightly different version as we look back – day by day—at memorable games played at 1255 Hempstead Turnpike in Uniondale. 

A labor of love? Or pure insanity? You can decide.

The new series will debut on Friday, October 3rd – the anniversary of the earliest home opener in Islander history --- and a special one at that!

In honor of Al Arbour's 740 regular season wins behind the Isles bench, you will be able to find each day's edition on nyiskinny.com at exactly 7:40am.

As always, thanks for reading NYISKINNY.com
