They are also playing a scrimmage game tonight, but it will play as an actual game to try to help get into the swing of things to make up for the lost preseason. 3 20min periods, TV time outs, etc. They will also play an OT period and a shootout, no matter what the score is. And it's free to the public.
I know all this doesnt make up for losing half a season due to bull****, but I guess they are at least trying.
