Practice Time Comes at a Premium for New York Islanders | NYHN+

The New York Islanders spent Saturday and Sunday on the ice preparing to face the Philadelphia Flyers. It is likely the only two days that they’ll get on the ice over the next week.

Monday marks the start of the Second Round of the playoffs for New York and begins a six-day stretch that will see the Islanders and Flyers squaring off four times over that span. Meaning there is little time for practice during the best-of-seven series.

“You can correct a couple of things in practice, which is very helpful,” Islanders coach Barry Trotz said on Sunday. “But with our schedule based on being basically four games in six nights, there’s not going to be a lot of practice. Not until probably after Game 5 or Game 6.”
