It has become the norm these days for games to be moved around, and once again that was the case for the New York Islanders and several other NHL teams.
The league announced on Tuesday that it has made 24 changes to the NHL schedule, which included moving the Islanders’ April 14 game against the Boston Bruins. The game will now be played on April 15 at 7 p.m.
The change keeps Boston from having to play on back-to-back nights against two separate teams. They would have played the Buffalos Sabres the night before and then hosted the New York Islanders the next night with a day off in between before facing the Islanders again.
Now the Islanders will play Boston on back-to-back nights at TD Garden. The change likely allows for the Islanders to be in Boston for a shorter period of time.
The April trip will be the Islanders’ second of the season to Boston and close out their stretch of games with the Boston Bruins. The New York Islanders are 3-0-0 against Boston through their first three games this season.
Tuesday’s scheduling adjustments were the third this season for the Islanders, who had three games changed on them last week by the NHL. Those three also impacted the Isles’ road schedule.
