"Fort Neverlose" special Tuesday; Isles playoff TV notes

Don't forget tomorrow at 7:00 there is a 1-hour special on the Coliseum era titled "Fort Neverlose" debuting on NHL Network.  They have been working on it for MONTHS -- and its a really enjoyable history of the Coliseum.  I also expect there to be some snippets on the NHL website that didn't make the broadcast -- they had hours upon hours of interviews.

The playoffs open Wednesday -- the Isles play every other day throughout the series.

Games 1/2 from Washington Wednesday/Friday are both on MSG+ with Howie/Butch and our fine crew. 
Game 3 on Sunday at noon is exclusive to NBC.  Doc Emrick will call that game.
Game 4 on Tuesday is a 7:30 start, back on MSG+.
Starting times and television arrangements for Games 5/6/7 are still to be determined.   Note that game 6 -- an Islander home game -- could be played in the afternoon or in the evening.

All playoff games are available nationally in the US/Canada (National feeds are blacked out when MSG+ televises).  Out of town fans can catch Game 1 on USA Network (which hasn't had hockey since the 80s) -- Kenny Albert & Pierre Maguire will have that broadcast.
From MSG's website:
All MSG+ televised games are preceded by a 30-minute Islanders pregame
All games are followed by Islanders postgame & Islanders Extra
(there will be extensive post-game coverage on Sunday!)

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
