NEW YORK Slow starts have been an issue this season for Calgary. The challenge for the Flames may be exacerbated Sunday at Madison Square Garden when they visit the New York Rangers in the opening game of a two-game Eastern Conference road trip.Both teams lost their most recent games. The Rangers fell to the host Washington Capitals 4-3 in overtime on Wednesday. The Flames dropped a 5-3 decision to the visiting Nashville Predators on Friday.Now the Flames (4-3-0) will look to get off to a faster start after traveling cross-country. Calgary [url=http://www.officialflames.com/authentic-adidas-derek-ryan-jersey]Derek Ryan Jersey Womens[/url] , which will play the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night, has been outscored 9-7 in the first period this season. On Friday, the Predators scored 51 seconds into the first period and never trailed.Article continues below ...We talked about our starts after the Boston game, left winger Matthew Tkachuk told the Flames website Friday, in reference to a 5-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday in which Calgary led 3-0 after the first.And today, first minute, what happens? They score. We kept battling back, but you cant continue to play uphill.This season is likely to be an uphill battle for the Rangers (2-4-1), who embarked upon a rebuilding project at the trade deadline in February. But New York has shown promise under rookie coach David Quinn, who has presided over four losses by two goals or fewer. The loss to the Capitals on Wednesday capped a productive two-day stretch against contenders for the Rangers, who beat the Colorado Avalanche 3-2 on Tuesday night.Thats big, coming away with a point three out of four, left winger Chris Kreider told reporters afterward. Obviously [url=http://www.officialcapitals.com/authentic-adidas-john-carlson-jersey]John Carlson Jersey[/url] , wed like to have four out of four, but three out of fours pretty good, considering the travel and the strength of the opponents that we played. So its something we can hang out hat on. But I think we can get to the point where were getting all four points.Two 36-year-old No. 1 netminders are likely to oppose each other Sunday night. With three days off, the Rangers Henrik Lundqvist is scheduled to start for the seventh time in eight games. Lundqvist took the loss Wednesday when he had 34 saves against the Capitals.Mike Smith, who has started the previous two games for the Flames and six of seven this season, should occupy the net Sunday. Smith absorbed the loss Friday, when he stopped 26 of 30 shots against the Predators.Lundqvist is 8-3-0 in 11 career games against the Flames. Smith is 5-12-2 in 20 career appearances against the Rangers. For the Rangers, defenseman Freddie Claesson is likely to miss Sundays game after suffering an upper-body injury during practice Saturday.Flames defenseman Travis Hamonic, who suffered a facial fracture while fighting with Vancouver Canucks defenseman Erik Gudbranson in the season opener Oct. 3, is skating with teammates but will miss his seventh straight game. NEW YORK (AP) Barclays Center is newer, sleeker and has the better food options. Nassau Coliseum has the history.With the New York Islanders splitting their home games between the two arenas this season, their fans have always been clear about their preference. They dont care much for Barclays Center, located in Brooklyn. They still love the renovated Coliseum [url=http://www.officialcapitals.com/authentic-adidas-lars-eller-jersey]Lars Eller Jersey[/url] , which is far more intimate and much more convenient for the Islanders fan base that remains concentrated on Long Island.Its a hockey arena here, said Peter Rotolo, who was at the Coliseum for a game in January. Barclays is like, the sightlines are terrible, the seats are terrible. Its a beautiful arena, but its a basketball arena and a concert arena. It never was made for hockey.Fans like Rotolo never fully accepted the Islanders move to Brooklyn in 2015 after the franchise spent its first 43 years at the Coliseum, winning four straight Stanley Cup championships from 1980-84. They complained about the bad views and many obstructed seats at the arena, which was built for the Brooklyn Nets, and clamored for the teams return to the Coliseum in Uniondale, 30 miles and seemingly a world away.They got their wish with a unique arrangement as the NHL decided to split up the home games between the two very different venues. The arrangement is expected to remain in place until the Islanders new arena at Belmont Park, adjacent to the horse racing track, is ready for the 2021-22 season. Construction isnt slated to begin until May.All of which means there are two homes for the first-place Islanders for at least the next two seasons and whats left of this one.They should have never left, said David Levy [url=http://www.officialcapitals.com/authentic-adidas-madison-bowey-jersey]Madison Bowey Jersey[/url] , a fan from Melville who attended a game at the Coliseum with his son and two nephews. We used to come here all the time. I go to Brooklyn, its beautiful but its a very, very long commute. This is much more convenient. They blew it when they didnt just rebuild the arena here.The Islanders played their first 11 home games this season in Brooklyn, then began an 18-game stretch on Dec. 1 in which they are splitting games between the venues, before closing their home schedule with the final 12 on Long Island. The last game at Barclays Center will be Feb. 16 against the Edmonton Oilers, though it has not been announced how any playoff games will be handled.Josh Rosenberg, who lives about 10 minutes away from the Coliseum, said he will go wherever the team plays but prefers the Coliseum for its proximity and the atmosphere.Ive been coming to Brooklyn since they first started, the Freeport resident said at Barclays Center. I mean, it sucks to pay the extra fee to ride the train but Im a die-hard fan. Ill take the Coliseum any day, but I dont mind taking the trip out here. (The Coliseum has) a way better vibe. Its packed all the time, everybodys cheering and the real fans are there.The teams move to Brooklyn was announced in 2012 after a failed attempt to secure public financing for a new arena on Long Island and zoning approval was rejected for a privately funded development plan that would have included renovations to the Coliseum. It was announced as a 25-year deal and appeared to secure the Islanders future in New York amid talk the team could move to another city.Whatever the cozy charm many saw in the old Coliseum, the renovations were welcomed and the noise level has remained deafening.Attendance figures reflect the fans preference.In seven games at the Coliseum this season [url=http://www.officialcapitals.com/authentic-adidas-nicklas-backstrom-jersey]Nicklas Backstrom Jersey[/url] , the Islanders have averaged 13,568 fans with four sellouts of 13,917. They have drawn an average of 10,788 with no sellouts at Barclays Center, which has a capacity of 15,795. Overall, the Islanders are last among the 31 NHL teams with an average attendance of 11,599.Veteran coach Barry Trotz, in his first year with the Islanders after winning a championship in Washington last season, has raved about the Coliseum as one of the old-style arenas that put fans closer to the ice and helps energize the home team. He contends the arena is worth 10-12 extra points over a season compared to elsewhere.So far, the Islanders are 5-1-1 on Long Island, and 9-6-2 in Brooklyn.The arrangement calls for the two arenas to evenly split the games for three years. This season, the Coliseum is getting 21 [url=http://www.officialflames.com/authentic-adidas-james-neal-jersey]James Neal Jersey Womens[/url] , while Barclays is getting 20. It is uncertain what the breakdown will be in ensuing years.BSE Global, which operates both arenas, shares the fans desires to have the team play all its games at the Coliseum. The NHL opposed the Islanders full return to the Coliseum, due mainly to it having a smaller capacity than every other arena in the league, but acquiesced to the split arrangement.The players like the Coliseum, too. The arena and the teams practice facility at Eisenhower Park a mile away are less than 30 minutes from their homes. In comparison, afternoon traffic in New York can make the trip to Barclays Center more than 75 minutes. Some players commute to Brooklyn on the Long Island Rail Road and then take car services home.At the end of the day it doesnt matter where you play, veteran forward Matt Martin said. You got to go out there and do your job, take care of business and win hockey games. The approach overall doesnt change.
