At least I'll get to see the season preview show (it'll probably air again on opening night) and then tonight's preseason opener. What gives about the Rangers possibly being the last team to play their first preseason game?
I personally don't go out of my way to watch preseason games, but if I'm near a TV tonight, I'll tune in. Should be fun to see some of the kids on display besides the usual veterans sprinkled in.
By the way, last Thanksgiving weekend, I was up at Lake George and I remember seeing both the Rangers and Sabres games from my hotel room. So I guess I got lucky in no blackouts.
The Islanders website lists that preseason games will be televised live on IslandersTV. Couldn't find a confirmation about tonight, but they're advertising it pretty heavily there so perhaps that is a way to get it.
