After Brooklyn Debut, Islanders off to Nashville for Predators Sunday

The building was cool and was not the Coliseum and oh-yeah-another-game-tonight looms.

Evidently it's preseason for the refs too.

The New York Islanders laid an egg on the ice in the first game in Brooklyn yesterday, but now it's on to the rest of the business of preseason preparation. That resumes with an early evening game in Nashville today (6 p.m. EDT start). But first, some more reactions to last night's christening of hockey at Barclays Center (lots of arena reactions in comments in that link):

Here is the Islanders' projected lineup and combos for Nashville, which should be an important game for Anders Nilsson in the battle for the backup goalie job:

40 Michael Grabner - 16 Peter Regin - 96 Pierre-Marc Bouchard
27 Anders Lee - 29 Brock Nelson - 18 Ryan Strome
40 Mike Halmo - 28 Johan Sundstrom - 38 Chris Bruton
36 Eric Boulton - 61 Riley Wetmore - 49 Justin Johnson

52 Joe Finley - 4 Radek Martinek
14 Thomas Hickey - 6 Ryan Pulock
44 Calvin de Haan - 7 Matt Carkner

45 Anders Nilsson
35 Ken Reiter

We'll have a full game thread up at game time.
