The New York Islanders will practice finding their way to their new, long-awaited, shiny new home today, as the squad will practice at UBS Arena for the first time. Will Robin Salo be there? He wasn’t in the lineup last night for Bridgeport.
They’ll be trying to lick wounds from the road trip, adjust to new D pairs by necessity, and figure out where the entrance is to their new locker room.
The arena opens with a frenzy, with back-to-back games this weekend against the Flames and Leafs, followed by visits from the rival Rangers and Penguins later next week.
