I find the last five games on the road very surprising. Does anyone recall ANY team finishing the season with a 5 game road trip? The conspiracy theorists on the boards will speculate that the isles pushed the NHL for it to allow Monti to start work on the hub earlier and the county might let the isles out of the lease early and we will be in Brooklyn in the fall...
Of course Islanders get screwed going to Winnipeg twice
so do piitsburgh, philadelphia, and boston.
what im not liking is, the two 5 game trips. two games at home and then 5 on the road to start the season, and wrapping up the season with the other 5 game trip.
