With the final preseason games being played on Saturday, this week marks the true beginning of the NHL season. On Tuesday, the New York Rangers host the Lightning, and the Los Angeles Kings host the Vegas Golden Knights. On Thursday, the New York Islanders host the Florida Panthers.

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Here are the New York Islanders, LIU, and NHL stories to know from this past weekend:

NYI Hockey Now: Speed kills, and the NHL game has developed into a speed and skill league, more so in the regular season than in the playoffs. For the New York Islanders, who have an aging core, their strength is not in that category.
