New York + Bridgeport Islanders vs. New York Rangers: Last men standing [Game # 16]

The New York and Bridgeport Islanders are set to face the rival New York Rangers for their first-ever meeting at UBS Arena at Belmont Park...for some reason. We all know how difficult it is to reschedule games between the NHL’s two geographically closest teams.

Dealing with days and days of players out because of COVID protocol, the Isles pushed their pre-game media availability back to 5 p.m. so they could sort out who is available this time. There were no new positive tests to report at that time, but Lou Lamoriello said they were still awaiting results of pre-game tests.
