Day 3: Practice Updates
The Islanders flew to Dallas immediately after the game, landing in Dallas around 2 a.m. central time. Fresh off their overtime win, the Islanders practiced deep in the heart of Texas Saturday afternoon, skating at the Dr. Pepper StarCenter in Irving, Texas. With a youth hockey tournament going on in the facilities’ second rink, the Islanders had plenty of interested spectators at practice.
