The Skinny on Isles postponements

The NHL postponed Friday's game between Anaheim and Washington due to the Nor'easter that is headed our way.  History would tell you that the Isles will get their game in with the Flyers on Saturday as the Isles have had only 5 games in their history postponed due to weather:

The 1993 storm caused a bunch of reschedulings.  Because the Penguins were in NY, the March 13 game was played March 14, pushing the 3/14 game with the Caps to 3/25, which pushed the 3/25 game with New Jersey to 4/16 and caused 4/15 game with Hartford to be rescheduled to 4/13).
