Hey, it’s an Islanders game. Too bad you can only watch it live.

There’s a game tonight at Barclays Center between the Islanders and Flyers. If you want to see it, get your ass to Brooklyn or check out the Flyers site because they might be streaming it.

Islanders (0-0-0, I guess.) vs. Flyers (0-0-0. Preseason, yo.)

7 p.m. EDT

Brooklyn's [ingloriously sponsored but still here] Center

Phlying into the Preseasons: Broad Street Hockey

Here are the line-ups, courtesy of the Islanders team site. The game is a split squad affair for Philadelphia, who are also playing the Devils in New Jersey at the same time. How is that possible? MAGIC! (and PTOs and prospects and stuff).

And here’s how the lines and D-pairs will shake out, per Arthur Staple. You’re gonna wanna watch that second line. Also, welcome back Eric Boulton.

No word yet as to who's starting in goal, but chances are both Gibson and Berube see work.

The Islanders have two split squad games of their own tomorrow night, one in Philadelphia and one at Madison Square Garden against the Rangers. The latter will be on TV, but you’ll have to deal with the Rangers crew, according to Eric Hornick.

Not sure if everyone’s going to get to see the game tonight if, but in any event, you can talk about it here. Maybe get someone from Barclays to send up smoke signals after every five minutes of game time. Or loose a carrier pigeon in between periods.
