As expected, the NHL has canceled the remainder of its preseason schedule as its lockout heads toward the two-week mark. Among the games canceled is the one between the Islanders and Devils that had been scheduled for next Tuesday at Barclays Center. It would have been the first sporting event at the arena and would have given folks a chance to see the building's funky hockey configuration in person. But, alas. At least the Globetrotters never get locked out.
