New York Islanders vs. Calgary Flames: The Reopening [Game 13]

New York Islanders vs. Calgary Flames: The Reopening [Game 13]

The Islanders and Flames have a trivial history of firsts, with the two franchises entering the league together in 1972 and starting with a 3-2 victory over the Atlanta Flames at Nassau Coliseum.

Last season, the Flames were again the guests of honor when the Islanders opened their second “permanent” home (I’m not sure how to classify Brooklyn, in retrospect), but Calgary spoiled the party by taking advantage of a lineup of the Islands devastated by the returning Covid. of a long road trip that opened a season that soon descended into chaos.

So tonight in Elmont is an opportunity for some kind of change. The Isles have a different coach, but mostly the same lineup. The Flames have the same coach but have changed a couple of stars, although not by choice.

The Isles registry appears to be in good shape and with Ilya Sorokin receiving the “first keeper out” tag of morning skating.

As a reminder, the Flames now have Jonathan Huberdeau and Nazim Kadri, not Matthew Tkachuk and Johnny Gaudreau. They they are also wobbly. They’re coming off a four-game losing streak (well, one in 3-on-3 after a regulation tie) and with blueline injuries to Chris Tanev, Michael Stone and Oliver “pronounced Czuczman” Kylington.

Enjoy the game, half an hour earlier than usual at 7:00.
