Florida at New York OPENING NIGHT or Opening Night

New York Islander Fan Central | 10/08/2011 07:10:00 AM |

Welcome to OPENING NIGHT or Opening Night for the 2011-12 New York Islanders, depending on how you view the first game.

NYIFC goes with Opening Night.

Last season's 4-1-2, first place start became 5-18-3, so those putting huge stock in how a season begins, or media who were hyping the club early last season after Tavares beat Toronto in overtime, simply got selective amnesia a year later, as no one wrote about that this summer.

Just as few wrote about the injuries in previews, no one touched on the subject of man games lost to injury three of the last four years, however folks who follow the team here understand this.

As for New York Islander Fan Central, we will be sticking to the game plan released recently for the 2011-12 season here but felt an obligation to set everyone up as best as possible to begin the 2011-12 season, so a great deal was put into preseason for our readers.

Now we go into periodic updates, some by blog entries, others via twitter. Game by game updates for all eight two games (including a reduced eighty for Bridgeport) are a thing of the past, even in twitter format.

Our thoughts have been expressed endlessly on several subjects, now we will see how things play out on/off the ice.

Thank You and enjoy the 2011-12 hockey season for the New York Islanders, Bridgeport Sound Tigers, and our teams prospects.
