Split-squad starts, ends Isles' preseason


The Islanders get a late start on their preseason schedule, but they'll make up for it by pulling a move from the Yankees' and Mets' spring training handbook.

On two separate days the Isles will separate their roster to play two games virtually simultaneously. The first such split-squad games is slated for Sept. 29 in Philly and Saskatoon. The second instance closes the preseason with games in New Jersey and Long Island. Here's a closer look.
