Last time the #Isles opened a season here in Raleigh was Oct. 10, 2014. A 5-3 win. Also the last time the #Isles won a season opener (0-2-1 since)

Well, here we go! Should be interesting to say the least.

Can our top two lines, which on paper look pretty good (with a big asterisk next to Nelson) score enough goals to keep us competitive?

Does Trotz’ system reduce goals against?

Is Lehner going to have that renaissance season?

How much will the third and fourth lines contribute, both GF and GA?

More questions than answers, for sure. I just hope we play with grit, don’t blow a ton of late leads and compete.

The bar is not high, so we should at least be better than last year.

Oh my.

Not counting Al Arbour's "1,500" game, new Isles coaches are 7-10-2 in the first game of their stints (Arbour lost both of his others).  

his is the 11th time the Isles will start a season with a new coach. The only coach besides Laviolette to win his debut in a Season Opener was Lorne Henning- a 2-1 win over Florida on January 21, 1995.

Lou Lamoriello will try to do something tonight that Bill Torrey, Don Maloney, Mike Milbury and Garth Snow were unable to do - win their first game as an Isles GM. Maloney's first game, in October 1992, was against Lamoriello's Devils.

FIRST GAME EVER:
1 L October 7, 1972 2–3 Atlanta Flames (1972–73)
LOST 3-2 :bag:
