NY Islanders News

Finally some hockey tomorrow – sort of.

By Gary Harding

I am excited to go to the Coliseum tomorrow.  Even though that there is no “opponent”, it is still a game nevertheless.  Nearly 170 days from the last game of the previous season, the Islanders take to the ice in the Blue and White scrimmage.

I will be covering the scrimmage, and I hope to get an interview or two as well.  I may blog live, so if you can not make it – check it out here on Eyes on Isles.

A little scare today, when Kyle Okposo sat out of practice today, but reports are not as bas as originally announced.  It will be the first chance for MANY to see the 2010-11 team.

Ricky will be in the nets tomorrow – which will give many Islander fans wondering whether we will begin to see glimpses of the old DP.

Hopefully, I will be seeing you at the scrimmage tomorrow.  The Blog box is moving up to the Press Box upstairs this season, but I do not know if we will be there tomorrow.
